This young Norwegian band fuses and melds folk, rock, ambient grooves and jazz into an unusual whole on their first release, driven by Elisabeth Vatn's bagpipes and clarinets, Harald Skullerud's percussion, and Olav Torget's plucked strings (including guitar, bass, banjo Senegambian konting and Chinese moon guitar). It's often a brilliant and daring approach to the tradition, with hints of any number of genres, and ultimately, none.
Listen (and listen to more than one... there's a lot of diversity here!)

Please note!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.
