Kim Myhr - You | Me [Hubro Music]

Put on the circuit via Hubro Music in late November, 2k17 is "You | Me", the latest album effort by Norway's Kim Myhr who, according to the album info, is delivering his first longplay piece in which everything is derived from one specific musical idea. The result is an album split in two, with an "A" and "B" side simply named like that, in which the 18 minutes spanning continuous "A" side provides a feel of slowly evolving, Ambient-infused PostPostRock accompanied by decent electronic backings, providing a steady and organic flow leading into a dismal greyscale mood matching the misty ocean and dark'ish clouds depicted on the albums cover before the "B" side mostly relies on a dreamy guitar motif that immediately induces autumnal melancholia into every listener, stretching its 20 minutes total runtime into an ongoing eternity and therefore turns this one into our favorite out of the two tunes to be found on this longplayer.
