Album Review

Stronen/Storlokken [Rune Grammofon]

Max Level   1/22/2006   A Library

Supersilent’s Storlokken (keyboards/electronics) teams up with fellow Norwegian Stronen (drums/electronics) for some nutty abstract jazz-rock, all instrumental. (you want nutty? check Track 5.) The tight interplay between the two musicians is amazing, considering this material was supposedly all improvised. Storlokken uses odd keyboard voices to send out lines that are jazzy but in a weird fractured way. While Stonen’s drums definitely groove, he often seems to be whacking everything within reach, just for the sake of variation. At times it seems that his drums are also triggering programmed sounds and patterns. A wonderful mixture of blurting electronics, moody downtempo atmosphere, and crazy hyperfunk.
