After two sold out vinyls on the rev/vega rec label, this third release is shared with the Kommun2 label. This time it’s a double album, again with original artwork from painter Danilo Stankovic. The album consists of eight songs recorded over a four year period and captures FMD unique music at its best. From the opening of ”Jämfota” with its monotone trance-psych via the folk-rocker ”Spindlarnas Träd” to the Flower Travelling Band influenced ”Köket Brinner”. ”Hörsägen” and ”Blågylta” capture them in a more stripped down style. ”Ökenvandring” fills up a whole side which sounds like being arranged but is actually a lengthy improvised jam. With a name lifted from Ash Ra Temple’s masterpiece, you might easily assume that Flowers Must Die is just yet another band on the - stylistically rather narrow - spectrum of space rock revivalism that has grown increasingly crowded over the last decade. And you would be right, but only to a certain extent. Sure the Hawkwind and Amon Düül II influences are there and yes, there is definitely an abundance of effect pedals and improvised freak-outs. But listen beyond that and you might be able to catch the nuances. It’s these nuances that inspire some listeners to come up with new genres like Doom Jazz and Oriental Hard Rock to describe FMD’s musical palette. This double album is limited to 500 copies and comes housed in a gatefold sleeve with full color poster.
