Slagr - Linde [Hubro Music]

Lined up for release via the long standing Norwegian imprint that is Hubro Music on March 11th, 2k22 is "Linde", the sixth full-length album outing by the trio Slagr which is comprised of Anne Hytta, Katrine Schiøtt and Amund Sjølie Sveen. With a total of eight new pieces forming a roughly 38 minutes spanning body of work inspired by Katrine Schiøtt's pregnancy and her post-partum state of mind Slagr explore a sonic realm of stripped down, crystalline and ever so chiming beauty combining cello, vibraphone, tuned glasses and rural Norway's trademark instrument, the hardanger fiddle, into a tender and emotionally touching soundscape touching base with both acoustic Ambient resemblances ("Glimmerskyer" / "Etterglød") as well as with naturalistic Nordic Folk-based beauty in instrumental cuts like the title track "Linde" and a certain heartfelt melancholia especially prevalent in pieces like "Søvnløs" or "Legende". A timeless, floating and 100% cohesive body of work this and defo one to be shared with a loved one.
