Stein Urheim & Mari Kvien Brunvoll For Individuals Facing the Terror of Cosmic Loneliness Limited Vinyl LP

Stein Urheim and Mari Kvien Brunvoll are a unique and wonderful Norwegian duo, who merge vocals, electronics with acoustic instruments to mesmerising effect. Their symmetry, their perfect blend that produces such marvellous colours, textures and moods. 180g vinyl with download code included. The old and new have always been combined in a unique way by the duo (who are accompanied by Jørgen Træen on certain tracks), but with this album, they have taken their craft even further. The distinctive alchemy of lo-fi transmuted to something more evocative than the purest of hi-fi, the shimmering melodies and hazy sunshine progressions, and the bizarre conglomeration of the childlike with the eerie that were present on their previous releases 'Daydream Community' and 'Daydream Twin" are here given additional winding paths to wander through. There are hints of Morricone Spaghetti Western; veritably horizontal lounge lizardry that would shame Dean Martin; bossanovas from the outer cosmos; dub reggae that suffers from chronic autophobia; proto-ambient hipster-devouring Far-Eastern blues; curiously delicate soundscapes; parties for the ghosts of the closing time patrons of The Penguin Café; electric folk from a deep blue stratosphere; sparse baroque soundtracks for a benighted Venetian excursion; and dismembered blue Victorian music hall ditties and ballads, crawling to the 1950s to reunify while no-one is watching. Simply put, there is nothing quite like it.
