The Goner was a psychedelic folk rock band from Sweden. Starting out as a solo project of Daniel Westerlund in 2008, the lineup quickly expanded and over time developed into a six piece live band; playing an eclectic range of instruments including banjo, violin and synths.
The Goner debuted in 2008 with a series of EPs dubbed the H-Trilogy on Daniel Westerlund's own CD-R label Svarta Marknaden: Halartrallar, Hind Hand and Haven. These limited releases garnered some interest and collectively secured the #1 spot on It's a Trap! Scandinavian Music Journal's top album list of 2008. The following year, Hind Hand and Haven were reissued as the double album HH on US-based label Deep Water Acres. Featuring The Goner in full band mode, the release of Behold A New Traveler in 2010 drew further attention including a favorable review by Julian Cope, author of Krautrocksampler.
