Scandinavia’s premier alt-country/organic-rock outfit have released their tenth album. American born singer-songwriter Martin Hagfors has honed his eclectic, catchy and lyrically unique skills to the point of perfection. Home Groan’s Hey Revolution Now! showcases a mature full fledged band that can rival anyone in creative power and musical sensibility. Hey Revolution Now! is produced by Motorpsycho’s Håkon Gebhardt and is
augmented by one of Europe’s finest guitar players: Lars Håvard Haugen.

Home Groan is an exceptional live band and Martin Hagfors’ solo incarnation Groan Alone has been a favorite opening act for the likes of, Richard Thompson, Lucinda Williams, Ani Di Franco and the late Elliot Smith.

Home Groan’s Martin Hagfors is a prolific song writer and his skills have been utilized by numerous artists. His recent collaboration with the Jaga Jazzist/Thomas Dybdahl off-shot: The National Bank proved to be both commercially and artistically successful cumulating in a Norwegian Grammy and the song, “Tolerate” being honoured as song of the year by BMI/ASCAP affiliate: TONO.

A Treat for Fans of Alt-Country and Folk Rock
“Hey Revolution Now!” is an excellent alt-country/folk rock album from Norwegian outfit Home Groan. This is the tenth release from singer/songwriter Martin Hagfors\' band, and the toe-tapping Americana and folk arrangements and eclectic lyrics highlight Home Groan\'s musical maturity. Though occasionally coupled with an excellent female vocalist, Hagfors is the lead vocalist and, true to the fusion of genres, sounds like a mixture of Tom Petty, The Weakerthans, and Wilco. The song titles infer a certain witty humor in the lyrics and do not disappoint. Showing his musical maturity, Hagfors is capable of juxtaposing the humorous with the serious, from biting heads off of microphones to falling off a cliff at Big Sur. “Hey Revolution Now!” is well-recorded with an overall sound great for the genres. “Jfk Loved Volvos Too” is a well-composed acoustic song about Hagfors\' 1961 Volvo with a humorous chorus and great male/female duo vocals. “Bring You Back With a Song” is a sadder love song and a ballad of sorts with great hopeful lyrics. The title track, “Hey Revolution Now!” follows this up with a fun political track with the group chorus, “Hey revolution now/ Make peace with the holy cow.” With “Hey Revolution Now!” Home Groan has crafted an excellent, musically mature album with intelligent, memorable lyrics and wonderful backing arrangements. Fans of alt-country and folk rock, pick up this album now!
