ARTISTS ON EINNICKEN RECORDS
Nods Off - Going (Gone). Released November 2017.
The Electric MZ - Eternity & A Day. Released March 29, 2018.
- The new album ”Eternity & A Day” by the Electric MZ has got some fine reviews:
Leading Swedish jazz magazine Orkester Journalen states: ”Together, everyone contributes to creating a genuine group sound, which despite the actual timelessness of the music and its "here and now" still feels a lot of Swedish 70's, but then of the absolute best kind. The title is a homage to director Theo Angelopoulos. An album to glorify the summer with."
Net magazine Dig Jazz gives it a 4 out of 5 rating: ”Jazz coming from funk, psychedelia, and Latin with clear contemporary sounds”. Read the whole review (in Swedish) http://www.digjazz.se/Diggat.html#MZ
The net magazine Kulturdelen also gives it a 4 out of 5 rating: ”Should you compare the band with something else, maybe it could be Tonbruket, which can move in about the same boundaries. But The Electric MZ cultivates a softer and more rounded and unified sound. That I called Stefan Wistrand the band's forefront figure does not mean he is the dominating soloist, although we can enjoy really fine saxophone playing as on "Stratum" and a wonderful effort on bass clarinet on “Endless”, the final cut of the record, which at the same time cradle us down. It is after all the band as a whole and a unity that is at the center and the sound that is collectively created.” Read the whole review (in Swedish) http://www.kulturdelen.com/2018/06/15/lp-eternity-a-day-med-the-electric-mz/
