The series is curated by Petter Flaten Eilertsen. All tracks are mastered by Lasse Marhaug. Label design and layout by Bjørn Kjetil Johansen. All physical orders are handled and shipped by our friends at Platebutikken Tiger / Diger Distro.

This tribute series has been blessed by Motorpsycho, who consider it an honour to be celebrated in this way, but they are not involved in any details.

Kosmogon is a compelling project of two Swedish instrumentalists, classically trained pianist Sophie Linder and musical collaborator Nicklas Barker, best known as composer, guitarist, Mellotronist, and singer in the Swedish progressive rock band Anekdoten. The two have come together with an eclectic range of organic keyboards, including the Arp Odyssey, a real Mellotron, a Farfisa organ, and a Logan string machine to create a tapestry of contemplative minimalist pastoral soundscapes and hallucinogenic visions, redolent of early electronic music pioneers as Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel’s Manuel Göttsching. Their debut album Mässan was recorded in the autumn of 2020 in their cottage in the Swedish countryside. It’s an homage to Sweden’s breathtaking nature in six parts, symbolizing different phases of evening, night, and early morning in the forest. Mässan was released on LP/MC/CD/DL by Tonbad Grammofon in 2021.

Monolite – Heartattack Mac (Gebhardt/Ryan/Sæther) 6:19
Jonas Stålhammar – guitars, Mellotron, vocals. Per Stålberg – bass, vocals. Kalle Lilja – drums. Recorded and mixed by Per Stålberg and Kalle Lilja at Welfare Sounds, Gothenburg.

Monolite is the new project of Jonas Stålhammar (At The Gates, Bombs Of Hades, God Macabre, The Lurking Fear, Utumno), backed by his friends Per Stålberg (Division Of Laura Lee, Pablo Matisse, The Smoke) and Kalle Lilja (Långfinger).


Sweetheart – Waiting For The One (Sæther) 3:27
John-Arne Ø. Gundersen – vocal, acoustic guitar. Anne Mette Hårdnes – vocal, piano. Stian Jørgen Sveen – pedal steel guitar. Produced by Sweetheart and Anders Møller. Recorded and mixed by Anders Møller at Subsonic Society, Oslo.

Sweetheart was formed as a country rock band back in 2003, but the first incarnation of the band only lasted a couple of years. They resurfaced in a more acoustic form in 2018, playing their own brand of low-key and melancholy americana. Their self-titled debut from 2020 won them a Norwegian Grammy for best country album. Sweetheart is now the duo of John-Arne Ø. Gundersen and Anne Mette Hårdnes, but they often record and perform live with various additional musicians. Their records are released by Mother Likes It Records, run by Hårdnes, and home to many other great artists.

Electrond – Feedtime (Gebhardt/Ryan/Sæther) 4:56
Arranged, performed, recorded, mixed and produced by Electrond at Electrond HQ, Oslo. Instruments: Make Noise 0-Coast, Behringer Model D, Arturia Microfreak, Arp Axxe, Korg Prodigy, Rakit Drum, Rakit Metal, Roland TR09, Chase Bliss Mood.

Electrond plays epic electro-prog, and is the solo project of Trond Gjellum, drummer of the Norwegian progressive rock bands Panzerpappa and Suburban Savages. In addition to his lifelong love of progressive rock, he has also had a soft spot for catchy electronic music and wanted to create a fusion of progressive rock and electronic music. He couldn’t find a place for this in his regular bands, so he found the need to start Electrond to have a creative outlet. The result has been described as “If Devo and 80’s King Crimson had a baby; it would sound like Electrond”.


Geir Sundstøl – Nothing To Say ~ Lacuna/Sunrise (Sæther) 6:03
Runa Cecilie Waterloo Hovstein – euphonium. Geir Sundstøl – National guitar, MiniMoog, Logan String Melody, Singh tabla box, bass guitar, percussion, celeste, electric guitars and Optigan. Recorded and mixed by Geir Sundstøl at Studio Intim, Oslo.

Norwegian multifaceted guitarist and instrument collector Geir Sundstøl has appeared on more than 400 albums as a sideman and session player, but during the last years he has finally found the time to record four albums of his own original and distinctive Nordic Noir soundscapes, all released on quality label Hubro: Furulund (2015), Langen Ro (2016), Brødløs (2018, awarded with a Norwegian Grammy), and St. Hanshaugen Steel (2021).

Silje Huleboer – Serpentine (Ryan) 5:56
Performed, arranged, produced, recorded and mixed by Silje Huleboer at Chaka Khan Studio, Oslo. Noises by Sten Ove Toft. Beats by Emile The Duke.

Silje Høgevold is best known as part of the duo Ole & Silje Huleboer, who have released the albums Sounds Good (2016) and We’re Making Music (2020). Together they run Chaka Khan Studio in Oslo, where among other things they have recorded and co-produced Darkthrone’s album Eternal Hails…… (2021). Silje has been a guest artist on records by The Lionheart Brothers, Simen Tangen, Svalbard, Jørund Vålandsmyr & Menigheten, Auden Prey, KUUK, and The Opium Cartel. But she also records and performs on her own as Silje Huleboer.
