Monkey Plot Here I Sit, Knowing All of This Limited Vinyl LP + CD

On their third album the guitar, bass and drum trio Monkey Plot are going electric again after having cultivated a purely acoustic sound for several years. Their music still evokes an impression of intimacy, although the band's roots in rocking improvisational music now come more clearly to the fore. When Monkey Plot was founded six years ago, they were a rough and earthy electric guitar trio before pulling the plug and deciding on a totally acoustic sound. Now they're plugging themselves back in again, but with a very different expression than they had six years ago. The group's acoustic music was designed for small rooms: living room music. On 'Here I Sit, Knowing All of This' they have moved down to the basement. Their music still suits small spaces, but the volume is turned up and the energy is different. But rather than presenting raucous, noisy rock-club improv, they have developed a kind of ambling, makeshift form of expression, which is their own unique sound. Recognisable and new. Challenging, but accessible. Monkey Plot have been described as having revitalised Norwegian improvisational music, and improvisation remains their tool of choice in forming their music. The material on 'Here I Sit, Knowing All of This' has been carved out gradually in the course of several years of interplay and improvisation. Monkey Plot's first album, 'LÝv og lette vimpler', was released on the Gigafon label in 2013. The following year the band was pronounced "Norwegian jazz musicians of the year" and won a grant from Gramo, Norway's performing rights collecting society.
