Marhaug: All Music At Once
Lasse Marhaug is at it again with "All music at once" (Smalltown Superjazzz 2011). This time using only the "Marhaug" name, and working with some of Norway´s finest noise makers (a new band perhaps?)
The gang: Jon Wesseltoft, Stian Westerhus, Hild Sofie Tafjord, Lasse Marhaug, Kevin Drumm and Maja S.K. Ratkje.
Marhaug has made a varied album. We get brutal metal ("Born cold"), electric storms hiding wild beasts ("Blood of the beast", "Don´t buy bread, buy dynamite", "All music at once") and deep, dark ambient noise ("Feed the earth and master it" and "Mountain of the seven vultures").
I know you seldom find me doing some deep analysis in this blog (OK, never then!), and I see no reason to try here. Just turn up the volume!
This works best when you really feel the noise.
