Joxfield Live Exploration 2017

At the beginning of July 2017, Joxfield did their "Live Exploration 2" in Bråna, Dalsland, that is, an exploration of whether we would be able to present our music in a live situation in a way that we ourselves could be satisfied with. Janne had a sound construction, a pattern called "Crackle" that we used as a basis. There were a number of different variations on the basic theme played but with large variations as, as usual, we were easily bored by one-sided repetition. Everything was recorded and in 2021 we cut together 6 good moments from the recordings and released the album "Live Joxfield Vol. 1".

Over the years there have been a couple more Live Explorations, but we are not a live band yet. But having just turned 70, we plan to do our first world tour in ten years from now, so if you want to book us, be quick, we work slowly.

"Live Joxfield Vol. 1" can be listened to here https://tincanmusic.bandcamp.com/album/live-joxfield-vol-1

Today's Pick: Live Joxfield Vol. 1


Today you can listen to this one, "Live Joxfield Vol. 1" (Tin Can Music 2021).
During four days in July 2017, we recorded the same song in a number of different versions in the living room in Bråna, Dalsland. The basic structures of the song were the same but our reluctance to play the same thing over and over made it sound a little different each time. It was all part of an experiment to see if we could actually function as a live band. Everything was recorded as usual for documentation. A few years later, six of the versions were heavily edited and assembled into a suite, "Crackle". Not bad at all if I do say so myself. The Bandcamp version can be found here (with Bandcamp's little breaks between each part).
If you want to hear it in one go, it is available on various streaming services. If you want a simple, self-printed CD, you should apply here:

What's up?


Hi There!

We're entering the 19th year of Joxfield & Tin Can Music activities so maybe a decent question is: What's Up?

The last three years has been very busy with tons of releases by Joxfield, Etherwink & Larwott, The Global Researchers, Henry Etherwink, JANNE (JNNE), etc, etc. New music and not so new music, but all previously unreleased has been presented.

If anything new will happen during 2024 and what that could be we don't know yet. But never say never, sometimes things just pop up from nowhere, so always be alert.

And next year is our 20th anniversary... whatever that mean...?

Meanwhile, don't hesitate to listen to our music and visit our Bandcamp site. 


(Our December 2023 release "Stupet" is still a heck of a good album!)

Beware! Be Aware! Be There!

Joxfield & Christmas - Wot????


Today's pick

This was a Christmas greeting from Joxfield to those who need and wants one.

"Fridge" was a complete improvisation, words and melody and playing, all of it.
"Loop" was an improvisation coming out of a guitar loop Oax played around with on his guitar while Yan had a job releated telephone call. After the call this was what happened. Both these tracks recorded live in the kitchen at C Kolpebo, November 2009. Additional drums and remix made at C Anna December 2019.
"A Merry Jox-Mas" is a tune made of samples of bloopers and failures recorded at C Bråna and C Kolpebo 2005 and 2006. Construction made at C Anna December 2019. It's not very serious.


Released December 17, 2019

All music and words written and performed by Stefan Oax Ek & Janne Yan Andersson.
