Unni Løvlid "Rite"
Unni Løvlid wrote all the music and lyrics on "Rite" (Grappa 2008). This is experimental folk of the best kind, and with musicians like Hild Sofie Tafjord and Lene Greganger (Spunk and Lemur), Helge (Deathprod) Sten, Frode Haltli and Håkon Kornstad, a dark and beautiful universe is created. Well "universe" is a word easily used here, because you also get "cosmic music" recorded by professor Alv Egeland at The University of Oslo. Far out!
"In a gentle arch you vomit blood and water,
in burning pain you twist,
with the pitching of waves you sew skin and bone together"
(From "Portrait" U. Løvlid).
