Lund was part of the Caretakers, a band which opened before the great
psychrock bands of that time. He recorded this album but no label was
interested. Releasing it privately it sold with the help of radio
promotion 2000 copies in less than two weeks, but still there was no
label to release it officially. So after 26 years this finally is the
The album can be
compared to the kind of albums of singer-songwriters with a deeper
concentration to the music with electric arrangements, far away from
other influences and with a time taken to develop, like what John Saint
Field or so did, but here with a west coast direction, and with some
attention to some sweet acidic development of the electric guitar,
backed by a rock band.
The voice goes from normal to higher notes, with emotional calm perspectives with closed eyes.
"Serene" has a fine production of keyboards (mellotron and electric piano by Angie Gudino).
