Take three renowned Nor­we­gian mu­sos –

Amund Maarud (gui­tars), Gard Nilssen (drums) and Lars Horntveth (bass, synths), con­nected to a va­ri­ety of dis­parate pro­jects and bands – stick them in a stu­dio, in­voke the muses of im­prov and record the re­sults. Which is five lengthy in­stru­men­tals that slip their gears eas­ily from del­i­cate jazzy noodling to freak-out garagepsych power.

Opener Bospho­rus shares some of Floyd’s Shine On You Crazy Di­a­mond DNA, while closer Moon Palace re­calls John Barry’s theme to TV show The Per­suaders be­fore spin­ning off into starry realms beyond imag­i­na­tion, to give but a brief in­di­ca­tion of the de­lights-in-odd- time-sig­na­tures within this in­tro­duc­tory salvo.

More al­bums are promised in a sim­i­lar raw, spon­ta­neous style, a beau­ti­ful gift to prog-minded space cadets ev­ery­where.
