Stein Urheim Strandebarm Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

On his third solo album for Hubro, string magician Stein Urheim, really gets serious about honing his complex expressive skills. His previous album garnered excellent reviews internationally, and has become a force to reckon with among listeners. Urheim plays an impressive number of string instruments on the album, but we can also hear several tracks featuring vocals, harmonica, pocket cornet and tape experiments, while producer Jørgen Træen makes a contribution on modular synth. The tonal point of departure for the compositions on this record is reminiscent of French music of the early 1900s and American ragtime and standards of the 1920s and 30s. The soundscape combines acoustic and electronic elements to generate a compelling result. Urheim is thoughtful and meditative without being withdrawn or sombre. 'Strandebarm' was recorded in Strandebarm Church. This space was chosen primarily because of its inspiring acoustics, and the music was recorded, as on the previous album, by sound technician Audun Strype. The recording was finalised and mixed at Duper Studio in Bergen by technician and producer Jørgen Træen, who also collaborated very successfully with Urheim on the previous album. 'Strandebarm' is Urheim"s third release as a solo artist, and also his third release on the Hubro label. He has also released three critically acclaimed duo albums on Bugge Wesseltoft's Jazzland label, together with vocalist and instrumentalist Mari Kvien Brunvoll. Urheim has also been a member of Gabriel Fliflet's band Aresong and HP Gundersen's critically lauded drone band The Last Hurrah.
