This is the second solo album on Rune Grammofon by Stian Westerhus -- the most exciting guitarist on the Norwegian experimental music scene. His vinyl-only release Galore and this album shows a musician challenging and stretching the limits of his instrument beyond the normal confines of the electric guitar, balancing raw expressiveness against virtuosity and melodic instinct. Stian is a founding member of Puma and the Monolithic duo with Motorpsycho drummer Kenneth Kapstad. He was, for a short period, a member of Jaga Jazzist and played on their One-Armed Bandit album and is currently a member of Nils Petter Molvær's new trio. Stian Westerhus: electric guitar.
