Nils Petter Molvær
We have not had too much on Nils Petter Molvær in this blog, so it's time to give you the big NPM blog post! If you need reasons for that: A new remix album is due in march (Re-visions), and Molvær is on the market with a record with Johannes Enders called "Dome". I wasn't aware of the last one until I read a (more than!) rave review in Norwegian magazine Jazznytt.
Solo albums and remixes. (The remixes are made by people like Herbaliser, Bill Laswell, Deathprod, Bugge Wesseltoft and see if you are able to find more here):
Khmer (ECM 1997)
Khmer. The Remixes (ECM 1998)
Solid Ether (ECM 2000)
Recoloured (Universal Jazz 2001)
np3 (Sula/Universal 2002)
The Hot Rod EP (Hot Rod magazine 2002 (?))
remakes (Sula/Universal 2003)
Streamer (Sula 2004)
er (Sula/Universal 2005)
I prefer the original albums to the remixes, and if you want my advice, start buying the new ones and work your way backwards. Lots of great music will come your way.
