Skarbø Skulekorps - Dugnad [Hubro Music]

Another fresh one scheduled for release on March 26th, 2k21 is "Dugnad", the sophomore longplay effort created by the Øyvind Skarbø-led Skarbø Skulekorps. Once again released via the Norwegian imprint Hubro Music the multi-piece band which could be described as an allstar ensemble of sorts caters a menu of 14 tracks within 30 minutes, a short, yet intense and well varied journey informed and somewhat influenced by the mixtapes of Skarbø's youth. This said, the Skarbø Skulekorps weighs in classic late night Jazz / Easy Listening vibes as well as explosive, highly dramatic pieces somewhat reminiscent of 80s news anchors and production music in "Kassett", twangy electric guitar solos alongside deep FutureJazz in "Triple F", even heavy Rock influences in "F-Punk" whilst the brutal, stumbling rhythms of "PGA The Fruit" or "Aslan" evoke memories of bands like Dyse and pieces like "Elia" hark back to most trippy, highly comforting Space Age Easy Listening just to name a few. A highly recommended journey that feels way longer than an actual half hour only. Get!
