I´m not making a list, but Norway must have it´s share of fantastic female vocalists?
Lisa Dillan is on the list that I´m not making! On her album "Arousal" (AIM 2010) you will find some beautiful songs with or without words ("Zen" and "When i close my eyes"), some French reading ("Trois Secondes"), cracking ("Knirk 2") and even a "Mouse Call".
The voice is in focus, with no instruments (if you don´t count floor, chairs and glasses) or electronics.
A beautiful, strange and funny album, recorded at the Emanuel Vigeland´s Museum in Oslo.
I bought a digital version of the album, and missed the DVD you will get, if you are smart enough to buy the CD.
