Toverberg is the new name of Lars and the Magic Mountain. With a new more intimate album coming up it felt like a moment for change in the name of the project and in the live set-up, which can be either a small band set-up or duo/solo depending on the situation. The original project started for Lars after several years of recording and touring with Yacht Punk band St. Tropez, and it was time for something new. For years he had been dreaming of forming a cult-like art band, in which he could combine all the things he loves in music. Think ‘not too many chords’, droney vibes, big sounds, spacey & symphonic: Songs that feel like they could go on forever. Having written all the songs, Lars started inviting his musician friends to his studio in Amsterdam, adding strings, horns and even a gospel choir, and quickly the project grew even bigger than he had imagined.

About the previous project (Lars and the Magic Mountain): 

Everything Looks Good From Here, is an album about devotion, honesty and above all: hope. The album title can be read as an ensuring, soothing message from one world to another. Song For Sasha, was written for Lars his son, when he was still inside his mother’s womb. While the world was on fire, during the Corona crisis, with this song Lars wanted to let him know Everything will be ok, for there’s enough love that awaits him and you can always turn to the  beautiful world of music.  Of course this message is ambigue, with ‘things’ not really looking ok at all at the moment, so it’s not coincidental Lars is portrayed hiding with his head under a stone on the album cover.

Influences: Fairport Convention, The Beta Band,  Spacemen 3, John Coltrane, The Velvet Underground, Sparklehorse, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Lars And The Magic Mountain klinkt soms als The Beatles op hun meest experimentele momenten. Da’s geen klein compliment.”
