What does HEMAT mean?
- Hemåt is a 1969 studio album by the Swedish progressive rock band International Harvester. A year after the release of Sov gott Rose-Marie the band changed its name, shortening it simply to "Harvester". The name change also saw a distinctive change in the tone of the music. The leader of the musical/performance art collective, Bo Anders Persson, had encountered the music of Joel Jansson, a famed old-time hurdy-gurdy player, in a book by Swedish music researcher Jan Ling. Joel Jansson's playing style focused on irregular rhythms and drone sounds, a pattern of sound that fit into the aesthetic of Pärson Sound/International Harvester and Harvester. Hemåt, continuing with its predecessor's move towards a nationalist music that was both politically and environmentally charged, was recorded in "Kafe Marx", a small cafe owned by the youth league of the Swedish Communist Party.
