Lars Myrvoll – The Island


Min venn og kollega Lars Myrvoll gav nylig gitt ut sin første soloplate etter lang fartstid som musiker og har høstet gjevnt over gode kritikker.

LÃ¥tene er gitarbaserte og har et drømmende, flytende, melankolsk uttrykk. Det minimalistisk, hviskende lydbildet tar en tilbake i tid med en summende, behagelig ro. Albumet er spilt inn pÃ¥ Myrvolls soverom i perioden 2002 – 2008 og anbefales pÃ¥ det varmeste pÃ¥ en kald vinterkveld.


Et par spor fra skiva finnes her og den kan kjøpes i sin helhet på bl.a. Tiger, Platekomp, iTunes og Musikkonline.no.

Pressemelding:

The first release on Safe as Milk rekords in five years is the much anticipated debut album of Lars Myrvoll: The Island.

I guess it makes sense to call ”The Island” an un-pretentious concept album.
The music on the album sounds like it is cherry picked directly out of a dusty music archive, and that is
partly also what it is. All tracks on the album was recorded in Lars Myrvolls bedroom between 2002 and 2008.
”The Island” is a collection of atmospheric, low key, and whispering instrumentals.
A simmering sonic brew of old blues records, TV-music from the sixties and kithchen table experimentalism.
Think Barton Smith or the calm minimalism of Morton Feldman mixed with Loren Connors´ melodic guitar trips.

Lars Myrvoll has been performing with a plethora of different projects, groups and musicians
for more than a decade. He plays rock in his trio Fatuhiva, and improvised anti-music in
Brötthäst Påny, but he is maybe best known as an improviser who has collaborated with
sax player Ketil Møster, Axel Dörner, Ole Henrik Moe, Kari Rønnekleiv, Klaus Holm,
Martin Taxt, Rafael Toral, David Stackenäs just to mention a few.

Aron Bergman (Lucky Kitchen) on “The Island”:
“Broodingly Scandinavian and
warmly welcoming, Lars Myrvoll´s bedroom recorded “Island”
is like an unexpected phone call from an old friend.
Myrvoll´s optimism shines in the chords and humming
harmonic, but undertones of loss and heavy baggage stir like

clouds blowing in from the North Sea.”
