The genre-bending Joakim Åhlund and Jockum Nordström Band perform an energetic, eclectic, avant-garde show that mixes jazz, rock, and blues with samples from other artists and field recordings.
Swedish artists and musicians Jockum Nordström and Joakim Åhlund have been playing and recording together since early 2007. Jockum Nordström is a well-known visual artist in Sweden – last year, Vogue described him as “the Rock Star of the Stockholm Art Scene” – and acclaimed musician and producer Joakim Åhlund is a member of the bands Caesars, Teddybears, Smile, and Les Big Byrd.
Rock, blues, jazz, and visual art come together in their recordings, which include a mash-up of samples and field recordings. The duo has released three records including Dracula's Son (Junk Yard Connections) and Paddan & Hunden (Kning Disk).
