ARTISTS ON EINNICKEN RECORDS
- A new album "Intro: Version" by free jazz group Nods Off was released in the midst of April 2021 in a limited CD edition. It was made live in 1999 and presents a previously undocumented version of the group. Players on the album are Erik Dahlbäck, drums, Tommy Skotte, bass and Stefan Wistrand, saxophones & compositions. "Sometimes free jazz is more punk than punk" said legendary music journalist Jan Sneum of Denmark's Public Radio after playing Nods Off on his program "Sneum's Garage"... (Unfortunately the release of the record on digital platforms has been delayed due to things out of our control. We hope it will turn up real soon!)
- Two albums by bassist and composer Tuomo Haapala were re-released on digital platforms by Einnicken Records in June 2020: "Sonic Poems" plus "Det goda hatet".
- The Electric MZ started recording a third album in early January 2020. Working title: "Tales of Trees". When everything gets back to a somewhat more normal situation we'll hopefully have it ready for release.

- The compilation album "Memento - the scene, the music" was digitally realesed in June 2019. The recordings were made during the music collective Memento's most active time and originally published in 2003. So here are most of the musicians and groups who were part of Eskilstuna's alternative music scene at that time: Johannes Rytzler, Nods Off, Jason & the Argonauts, Mattias Greén, Thomas Rydell, Two Sounds Ensemble, Marcus Arnström, The Curtain, Fundamental Form, Rytzler Trio, Stefan Wistrand, CCR and Soviac. On the album the musicians move freely between different genres such as electronics, improvisation, free jazz and experimental rock. Stefan Wistrand's composition for solo bass clarinet is incidentally included on the sound track for documentary "Hans Arnold - Penselns häxmästare" (2019) by director Micke Engström.
