cd cover Instinkt
Hur

New-folk music ensemble from Denmark edges towards rock without ever crossing the line into pure pop. Heavy on the fiddles, with a generous supply of hurdy-gurdy, flutes, and viola, and backed up with a rock-solid rhythm section, this is primarily an instrumental recording, supported by the occasional fine vocal.

The record label says:
INSTINKT made their debut performance at the Frederiksund Folk Festival in August 2000. The festival organisers counted on the group before it was even formed, but the 5 musicians rose to the challenge. After an explosive debut concert, INSTINKT developed into a unique band with a versatile and highly individual sound.

All of INSTINKT's members have a common love for Nordic folk music, which forms the jumping off point for the band's original compositions. The development of the music is characterised by a combination of their openness and their love of playing - ideas are allowed to run free and musical instincts are encouraged to thrive.

On "HUR", INSTINKT cover all their musical corners: there are light buoyant tunes built onto deep heavy grooves, beautiful labyrinth soundscapes, expressive and wordless voices melded together with Danish lyrics, and thick modal harmonies anchored by mystical drones. A multi-coloured experience, sparkling with humour, intimacy, energy and an infectious love of playing. HUR!!!

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
