ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The magazine The Big Takeover described Stellan Wahlstrom Drift Band's first album "Time Leaves You Behind" as "a more sophisticated take on a cross between post-Velvets and
Alt-Country with a very clean almost jazz-like ambience".

Based in New York during the last half of the nineties, Stellan did lots of live shows at clubs like CBGB's, Gaslight and Sidewalk, and recorded this album with Patrick A Derivaz who has previously worked with Television, Luna and John Cale. Poetic, lyrical singer/songwriter-rock with a dynamic, vibrating band. It's a varied mix of edgier guitar-based tracks like "Infected", "The Sleeper" and the title track, and slow, sombre songs like "And I was finally sleeping" and "Into the good night". You can hear the tradition of New York-rock blended with Scandinavian melancholy. Lots of reverberating Fenders, occasional piano, violin, lap-steel and Hammond organ. "The Paying" was released as the first single for radio, and the album also contains "Watching TV" which was featured in the independent film "Rhyme and Reason".

In the late eighties Stellan Wahlström toured Europe and the USA with the garage rock band The Wylde Mammoths, releasing records on the legendary Crypt Records label. He was also in The High Speed V, another wild rock combo coming out of that same scene. He is now out of the garage and with his new band he is doing what could be described as modern big-city folk-rock.

PRESS

"A very strong band performing some amazing music. Wahlstrom is a songwriter of the Townes Van Zandt/Bob Dylan school - not that his work sounds anything like either of those artists, but he has the same confidence in his storytelling"
// The Big Takeover (USA)

"True feelings and authenticity...Might come to mean a lot to many people"
// Upsala Nya Tidning (Sweden)

"Stellan is succeeding well with the down to earth melancholy"
// Ett Noll Ett (Sweden)

"Definitely honest" (7,5/10)
// Ici Magazine (Canada)

"Some of the intensity from which great albums are made"
// Realmusic (Germany)'
