Swedish trio Svvamp is the real deal. Countless bands today strive to
sound genuine -- whether faking their way through a ProTools pastiche of
carefully assembled takes, painstakingly tarnishing tracks to give them a
“live feel” or simply copying the style of their favorite band. And, usually,
their posturing is entirely transparent.
Every once in a while though, you find a band without self-conscious
pretense that truly echoes the mood and vibe of an era when the
rulebooks were burned with the draft cards and the act of playing
rock’n’roll was simultaneously defiant and inherently casual. Svvamp is
just that type of primordial beauty captured on a perfect 11-song debut.
Svvamp was created by three friends - Adam Johansson, Henrik Bjorklund
and Erik Stahlgren - drawn together for the sake of jamming and a love of
rock, folk and blues. Their resulting heavy psych sound is immediately
gripping in its homespun feel and hints of Cream, Eric Bell-era
Thin Lizzy, CCR and Crazy Horse.

“Serpent in the Sky” kicks things off with a syncopated bluesy riff romp,
while “Burning Down” echoes the stomping freeform feel of the
New Yardbirds’ “How Many More Times.” Once things settle in to the laid back
shuffle of “Free At Last”, Svvamp really finds its groove and lets loose like
Axis: Bold As Love Jimi Hendrix . “Time” sounds almost like Ziggy
Stardust era Bowie with a boogie swagger and cheeky vocals. “Set My
Foot and Leave” sounds as earnest and unpretentious as The Faces
(and at times like Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May”, without all that shaggy, smug
Rodness). Elsewhere, “Blue In the Face” slips into a heavy groove while
“Oh, Girl” bashes out stop ’n’ go riffs with the Marshall stack dramatics of
Blue Cheer . Chiming mandolin and acoustic guitars lead the charming
closing anthem, “Down By The River" (not the Neil Young song).
