From Frozen Feet Heat Came

Eldbjørg Raknes (vocal, electronics, sampling) is out with a new album called "From Frozen Feet Heat Came" (MYrecordings, 2007). She brings along Eirik Hegdal (saxes, clarinet) and Stian Westerhus (guitar and electronics). Raknes wrote her own lyrics for this one, but I'm not too focused on the words. The voice and instruments work together as a band, and it's good to hear Hegdal and Westerhus get going on their own too.
Listening to the CD I get a good "album feeling" here, more than hearing a collection of single tunes. They start off with "Some Day" and end it all with "Everyway, Everyday".
Not for background listening, while you are having a chat with someone.
