Because yes, this is an absolute gem, exploring the regions of drone, ambient, classical music, (dark) jazz and experimental music. The result is an adventurous album with calm, soothing music interlaced with poetry. Throughout the entire album, Ljerke seems to blend Zoviet France with The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, something I personally can only applaud. Opener 'Muurv' gradually lures you in with its minimal approach and follower 'Tsjilland' goes on a mild Godspeed! You Black Emperor journey.
The music seamlessly combines modern day electronics with contrabass, trumpets and guitars. I like that, but that's not really a surprise. As a fan of all things dark, slow and atmospheric I can only recommend this thing. That, plus I recommend playing it on a rather high volume, close your eyes and let mind altering soundscapes like 'Waarbekkasin' or 'Hettekobbe' do their thing. I don't want to talk about end-year lists yet but I am damn sure that these tunes will often appear in my day-to-day playlist from now on. Do yourself a favor and add them to yours too.
