Kalle Moberg - The Tokyo Sessions Volume 1: Unheard-of [KAMO Records 001]

What a kickstart for Norwegian artist Kalle Moberg who's launching his very own label KAMO Records these days, encouraged and endorsed by no-one less than the legend that is Jim O'Rourke who, impressed by his approach to and handling of the accordion as an instrument, invited Moberg for a recording session to his Tokyo-based studio. The result, or at least the first released result, is a six tracks and roughly 33 minutes spanning album exploring the sonic spectrum of the instrument, from the more or less classical improvisations of the opener "Delphic Dance" with its somewhat twisted melancholia via the Ambient-leaning, inward-looking textures and yearning drones of "Wish Upon A Satellite" to the playful, slightly off kilter variations to be found in "Skinned Alive By A Blunt Spoon", a title probably inspired by the movie classic 'The Horribly Slow Murderer With The Extremely Ineffecient Weapon' just to name a few.
