We’ve been in contact with Mark Sabol of Mark and Suzann Farmer for over a year and finally we found the time to record an interview with him. Mark and Suzann Farmer recorded one album, We’ve Been There, in 1978, which is still pretty obscure among collectors. It is mostly known for the moody late-night version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”, and alth…
 
We are honored to have Paul Major with us for the 80th and final episode of Arkivet. Paul has been one of the most influential persons for this podcast as the guru of obscure psychedelic and private press records. In order to have a collector scene, context and coherency are key elements and Paul was one of the first to see the connections and to l…
 
We seldom highlight music from our home country but in this episode we turn the spotlight on some Swedish underground and psychedelic bands. In the episode we listen to some of the most obscure bands of the Swedish underground, like Paul Edoh’s Class Breakers, which only release was a test pressing with just a few copies made, but we also play well…
 
We have put together an eclectic mix of unique artistic expressions in this show. The tracks doesn’t follow a specific genre but all are from the parallel universe of privately pressed music.

In this episode we introduce a new concept for the podcast and we call it the Mystery Jukebox. The idea is simple, we let a collector or listener send us a secret playlist, which we have no pre-knowledge about and let the selector take us on a journey to the unknown. After we have listened and discussed each of the track the artist identity will be…
 
Here we return yet again to the concept of Cosmic American Music, as we didn’t have the time to play you all of the tracks in part 1. In this second part, we mix lesser-known records with some true classics as well as revisiting a few artists that we have already listened to in pervious episodes. We also highlight two great new acts, James Matthew …

We’ve been doing this podcast for over five years now and recorded 70 episodes, including 23 interviews with other collectors and musicians. Over the years some have asked us about how we got into collecting records, so in this episode we’re going to tell you about our personal musical journeys and how we got deeper into the psychedelic rabbit hole…
 
Inspired by Numero Group’s compilation Cosmic American Music we felt we wanted to do a take on that theme. However, as neither of us have so much country records in our collections this episode turned out to be a little bit more eclectic with songs inspired by American roots music in general, so it will be some country-tinged tracks but also blues …
 
This is part of a DJ-set that we did together with Paul Major at Geronimo's FGT in Stockholm, July 2018.

Jade Stone and Luv - Reality Marcus - Sweet Inspiration New Dawn - Life Goes On Peter Grudzien - The Unicorn Dark …

This episode doesn’t follow a particular theme but instead focus around some recently acquired 45s.

Other highlights includes a ni…

The concept album format really started to evolve during the psychedelic era of the late ‘60s, and reached its height in the progressive scene of the early ‘70s, where the album became the main artistic expression. Here, we highlight some unusual concept and context-based albums, with some concept ideas being stranger than others. We hope you find …
 
We’re continuing our series of episodes of cheap quality records. In this episode, we’re mainly focusing on psych 45s but we also included a few full length LPs, which all coast around $10 and are easy to find. As usual, the bulk of the artists are from the US but we also mix it up with some affordable Italian prog and Swedish progg. We hope that s…

This episode we dedicate to Lounge music and due to the vastness of Lounge albums being released we have invited the expert Stefan Kéry for a proper introduction to this brand of music. Lounge differs from many other types of music as it is not a music genre, style or a scene but is instead defined by the setting of where it is performed, namely in…
 
In the last part of our two episodes with Måns P Månsson we focus more on the music and keep the talking to a minimum, as this is jam-packed with great garage-psych singles that Måns have picked out for the show.

In this extra-long Christmas special episode, we do a recap of the first season (which we did in Swedish) and highlight some of our favorite music from the episodes. We have picked one or two songs that we like the most, with many being all-time favorites, from each of the episodes to include here. The set of songs will hence, be highly varied and …
 
We haven’t focused much on pop oriented songs lately so we thought we needed a psychedelic pop episode in this season. This sub-genre of psychedelic music is to our minds strongly linked to major label and with that also a bigger production and more commercial appeal compared to many private press releases. We don’t consider this to be anything neg…
 
In this episode we focus on the very end of the first psychedelic period, namely the early 1980s. This period still links to the mindset of the late 60s but without becoming retro. Today’s selection is a mixed bag of DIY and later-phase hippie music. Genres in this episode includes folk-rock, singer-songwriters, AOR, real people music and rural roc…
