Geir Sundstøl - Brødløs [Hubro Music]

Scheduled for release on October 19th, 2k18 via Norway's Hubro Music-imprint is "Brødløs", the new album outing by Geir Sundstøl who's been teaming up with an elite group of musicians including the likes of Erland Dahlen, David Wallumrod, Nils Petter Molvaer and more to record and realize this fresh, eight tracks and 30 minutes spanning longplay piece. Opening with "Snev" the listener is immediately drawn into a Morricone'esque scorescape fusing twangy Country guitars and melancholia-infused electronic beauty followed on a similar path by the scenic, yet more calm and innocent "Leben"  whereas "Laems" brings forth full on Naturalist Ambient if this is even a thing genrewise. With "Warsaw / Alabama" Geir Sundstøl amalgamates and reinterpretes his favorite works by David Bowie and Brian Eno to a great touching and heart-warming effect whilst providing perfect music for classic, yet advanced ChillOut-floors, "Kraag" weighs in a good portion of Easy Listening and even hints of Hawaiian hot summer beach chill before "Blunder" goes even deeper in terms of total twang guitar relaxation, "Kulten" provides a bit of an asiatic Chill flavour with its damp overall atmosphere, background tablas and exotic plucked string tonality before the final cut "Waterloo" goes back to the score'esque backcountry excellence we've already experienced at the very beginning of "Brødløs". Recommended.
