Furulund is a collection of atmospheric, low-key, and evocative instrumental pieces, recorded using analog equipment at Geir Sundstøl's home studio, Studio Intim. The guitarist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist from Halden, Norway, has been making music for a living since 1988. He has left his unique musical mark on 260 records featuring everyone from a-ha to Nils Petter Molvær. Furulund is his first album under his own name, a long-awaited debut from an extremely popular musician. Sundstøl has toured all over the world, and has been the most frequently played performer on Norwegian radio for several years. A concert he held with country artist Jimmie Dale Gilmore in the USA in the 1990s gave film directors Joel and Ethan Coen the inspiration for Gaear Grimsrud, Peter Stormare's character in their 1996 film Fargo. Sundstøl's music draws inspiration from jazz, blues, roots, and country, but can be characterized most of all as original, eccentric, and lovely. Sundstøl is an avid collector of instruments, and his home studio is full of rare and unusual finds. He plays most of the instruments on the record himself, but has also enjoyed the input of a few colleagues representing what can without exaggeration be called the upper echelon: keyboardist David Wallumrød (Bern/hoft) and drummers Erland Dahlen and Michael Blair (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Lou Reed). Dahlen and Sundstøl have played together in a number of contexts, including Nils Petter Molvær's group and the band Morris. Furulund was mixed by Bård Ingebrigtsen at Amper Tone Studio and mastered by Helge Sten at Audio Virus Lab.
