Katariin Raska & Christian Meaas Svendsen - Finding Ourselves In All Things [Nakama Records 020]

Put on the circuit via Norway's Nakama Records imprint on December 13th, 2k19 is "Finding Ourselves In All Things", the first ever conjunctional album created by Katariin Raska and Christian Meaas Svendsen despite both having shared the stage in the same band, ÄIO, led-by Raska for years now. This cross-national collaboration between Estland-born Raska and Norwegian Nakama Records-manager Christian Meaas Svendsen results in two tracks stretched over the course of 33 minutes. "Melting With Butterflies" sees the duo on a shrieking, primordial and untamed tip into FreeJazz / Free Improv, bringing forth fever'ish background drums and an ever alarming feel of constant agitation whilst "The Way Mountains Make Love" is taking a totally different route, presenting a dark, fully organic low end Drone composition which is surely setting out to specially please all the Dark Ambient connaisseurs out there in terms of approaching the genre from a different angle whilst slowly progressing into slow, yet intense and slighty off-Jazz infused movements throughout the tracks' total runtime of a little more than 19 minutes.
