|Omschrijving||Jordsjø is a prog band from Oslo, Norway inspired
by old horror movies, German 70s synth music,
Swedish prog, fantasy novels and Norwegian nature.
They released three cassettes before releasing
their first “proper” album “ Jord ” in March 2018.
This 2CD release is a collection of all the songs
from these three earlier cassette releases:
“Jordsjø”, “Jordsjø II” and the split release with
Breidablik, “Songs from the Northern Wasteland”.
This 2CD set contains plenty of nods to older
(especially Scandinavian) prog. There’s an
underlying theme of alienation, roots and dreams –
with an organic and dynamic sound which gives
associations to 70s prog, with traces of electronic
music and folk. Plenty of flute, guitars and a vast
array of vintage synths - resulting in a warm and
vintage sound, while still sounding fresh and
interesting. Most of the instruments are played by
multi-instrumentalist Håkon Oftung (Tusmørke, Black
Magic), with drummers Kristian Frøland, Martin
Nordrum Kneppen (Wobbler, Tusmørke) and Tore
Flatjord. Guest artists: Håkon Knutzen (guitars)
and Vilde Mortensen Storesund (vocals).
