On Huntsville's very first release on vinyl, the group is heading in a heavier, darker, more rock-flavored and electric direction. Huntsville, an improvisational trio with a distinctive sound, has already released two unique, critically-acclaimed albums on the Norwegian label Rune Grammofon. The group has toured in Europe and the USA several times, has collaborated with Sidsel Endresen, Wilco's Nels Cline and Glenn Kotche, and held a concert in Spain with Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. Like so much other good music, Huntsville's music is difficult to categorize. Music journalists have tried calling it "yoga country" and "abstract drone Americana," and this time around it is not improbable that there will be comparisons with both "Krautrock" and bands such as Black Dice. But this is primarily Huntsville music. Nobody sounds like them. On the monumental track that fills the entire A-side, they are joined by the superb alternative pop vocalist Hanne Hukkelberg. The album was mixed at Propeller Studios with Kåre Chr. Vestrheim (Motorpsycho, Jaga Jazzist) at the board. This is clearly the most cohesive album the trio has made so far. Hypnotic and energetic music that deserves to be played at a high volume. Members include: Ivar Grydeland, Tonny Kluften and Ingar Zach. Limited edition LP in white vinyl with a printed inner sleeve. Free CD version included.
