Here you have another vinyl from Rune Grammofon (also available on CD): Fire!: "You liked me five minutes ago" (Rune Grammofon 2009).
Fire! is Mats Gustafsson (saxophones, fender rhodes, electronics), Johan Berthling (bass, guitar, hammond organ) and Andreas Werlin (drums). Gustafsson is a regular in this blog, but I knew nothing about the two other guys (sorry!). Werlin is a member of Wildbirds and Peacedrums with Mariam Wallentin, who is singing on "but sometimes I am" on this album. It is jazz, rock and a bit of noise in a nice mixture, and I would choose the two longest tunes "but sometimes I am" and "can I hold you for a minute", if I had to. (The titles are inspired by Robert Creely, if they sound familiar).
Buy it on vinyl and you will get a code to download mp3 files from Rune Grammofon. Cover: Kim Hiorthøy.
