Originally released in 1998 on the small Garageland label, Grovjobb’s debut is an excellent example of flute driven prog rock, that can be generally described as a Scandinavian version of early Jethro Tull (“Stand Up” & “Benefit” era), though entirely instrumental. There's a genuine lot to be (re)discovered here. Above all, the band succeeded to sound like a mid 70's progressive band, while avoiding the predominance of the technical factor in favour of low-tempo instrumental tunes with a heavy psych vibe, often in a happy, playful mode. When they jam, there’s a notable Fläsket Brinner influence enrichened by a constant interplay between fuzz-drenched guitar and flute. The resulting duels are combined with native folk motives and some jazzy moments, that give a special “warm summer night air” atmosphere to the pieces. Not the whole album is tightly structured, as Grovjobb wade also through some loose arrangements with a jamming feeling and a light improvisational touch. In its whole, “Landet Leverpastej” is a gloriously vintage and magnificently evocative recording with an “open” aura: the feeling of nature - the sounds of the forest and the sea. Everyone who is after well played instrumental music which rests more in a structured jam session vein, will love this record 100 colored vinyl issue this one.
