MY BROTHER THE WIND is an improvisational cosmic rock collective consisting of members of widely known Swedish acts MAKAJODAMA, MAGNOLIA, ANIMAL DAYDREAM and most notably ANEKDOTEN, one of the more widely recognized names in the 1990s prog rock revival.
Recorded live in the studio with no overdubs during a single day in January 2013, Once There Was A Time When Time And Space Were One captures the collective’s progressive soundscape qualities with incredible analogue studio production.
The band utilized 6 and 12 string acoustic and electric guitars, Mellotron, flute, bass, drums, congas and more to complete the task.
Expect 45 minutes of the band’s most succinct material to date, recorded deep in the snowy, forested, Swedish wilderness.
In 2013, MBTW expanded into an even wider fanbase, having been invited to play the mighty Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland, as well as at Duna Jam in Sardinia.
At the invitation of OPETH’s MIKAEL AKERFELDT, guitarist NICKLAS BARKER returned to Roadburn to perform an improv set with DUNGEN guitarist REINE FISKE.
Those who frequent the works of POPOL VUH, AMON DUUL, SUN RA, TRAD, GRAS OCH STENAR, ALBERT AYLER, ASH RA TEMPEL, GONG, PINK FLOYD and other visionary, psychedelic rock artists are advised to investigate this act.
