Single “Danmark nu blunder..” out now!

Danmark nu Blunder den lyse nat – in a radically reconfigured version. This is Højskolesangbogen as you have never heard it before.
Soffie Viemose!, Jakob Høyer!, Kasper Tranberg!, Jakob Munck!, Andreas Johnsen!, August Wanngren!, Thomas Vang!, April Records!
Thank you to Augustinusfonden & Statens Kunstfond for supporting the recordings.
Fun fact: The song lyrics by Thøger Larsen (b. 1875) are written in, and a description of, the landscape and the summer nights in the exact area I grew up in. And yes, the choice of season for our release date Oct 13th is … stretching it for a summer song, I know. However, the entire album is as much about the DREAM of those songs, the idea of the songs, the memory of the songs. And about opening up the well known versions, to access existential dimensions to the material, beyond or beneath the regular approaches. More on this in the album liner notes by the one and only Kresten Osgood.
Available on all digital platforms. Video of entire take can be found here.
Next single out November 24th, 2023

Zeuthen – Anderskov – Vestergaard’s studio album NOCTURNAL, out now!

Third album from the multigenerational trio, first one from a studio recording.

“Even at its most intense, the performance retains its lyricism” – wrote The Wire Magazine about the 2020 album Ecstatic Embrace.

The new album is, according to PassiveAggressive.dk, micro-dosing from the inner cacophony of possible sounds…: “Med en kliché og en meget tekstnær tolkning af pladens tema, som det angives af titlerne, kunne man også kalde “Nocturnal” en feberdrøm eller morfindøs, men det, der er på spil her, er snarere en art natlig klarhed. Det minder om den måde, ens sind ved nattetid kan åbne sig fuldstændig overfor andre indtryk. Det er som at stå i en skov af musik og ikke være bange for ikke at kunne finde hjem, for man har ikke brug for hjem lige nu. … voldsomt interessant at lytte til.”

Out on vinyl and digital on all platforms – including ILKmusic.com.

EMERALD cover design

Behold, the cover for the upcoming EMERALD album, out 10 days from now. Design by Mike Højgaard.
I dig how Mike was able to capture the music’s thematics around colours, symmetries (inner molecular symmetry within the materials, as well as outer symmetry in their arrangement), light, shadow, transparent stones, etc., into this 3D graphic design.
The observant observer (singular? plural?) might have noticed the similarity to the cover of the Gemstone Series sheet music book that came out very recently; All compositions on the album are also found in the book.
