Erlend Apneseth Trio - Lokk [Hubro Music]

Fresh on the ever active Norwegian imprint Hubro Music is "Lokk", the latest album outing by the famed Erlend Apneseth Trio. Released on March 12th, 2k21 the musical three piece led by fiddle player Erlend Apneseth caters a set of nine new compositions spread over the course of roughly 37 minutes with this release, pairing their mostly acoustic roots in what might be filed under the flag of Nordic Folk with a heavy dose of electronic components and riddims, resulting in a fascinatingly unique take on Global Bass in tunes like "Impendans", a cut one could easily imagine to be a part of the Ninja Tune catalogue as well, whilst "Slekter" seems to fuse the vibe of ancient formal dances with what seems to be a Tribal-infused beat foundation, "Linjer" explores a deeper, more listening oriented realm, evoking blurred memories of some works by the likes of FSOL, "Vake" dabbles with 60 second of pure Ambient goodness and the subsequent title track "Lokk" fully harks back to what might be a snapshot scene of medieval folklore, even despite the tender electronic textures to be found in this tune as well just to name a few. Recommended.
