Largely written following the traumatic arrival, three months early, of her first baby, Rebekka Karijord's Mother Tongue is comprised of eleven extraordinary songs tracking her experience with uncommon honesty and unshrinking courage. Like a collection of short stories, Mother Tongue chronicles the events surrounding her pregnancy and the agony of nearly losing her daughter, but it's much more than an album about childbirth. Mother Tongue is about instinct, about belonging, and about finding one's own emotional language. "I never know what my records are about until they're almost done," Karijord admits in a typical display of candor. "It´s like a subconscious collecting process, shooting arrows into the dark and then getting out there to see where they have landed. This time, however, it was a bit different." The album was recorded in Hawaii, Stockholm, and Oslo during 2015-2016, and produced, arranged, and edited by Karijord with help from Elias Krantz as technician, co-producer and mixer. Other contributors include Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums), Linnea Olsson, and Nina Kinert (vocals), Jacob Snavely (bass and electronics), Christopher Cantillo (drums), Joe Williamson (upright bass), and regular contributor Anders Scherp (drums & tuned percussion).
