Swedish folk band Vasen mix the haunting, lonely sounds of their country's traditional music with a modern sense of humor and a strong melodic assurance. Gront maintains the high levels of energy and musicianship the band has established on its previous recordings, while taking more unorthodox approaches to their arrangements. Traditionalists might find their music a bit watered-down in terms of faithful authenticity, but most others will find it enjoyable and accessible.
