(Karisma Records)

Having released what the band like to refer to as their first "proper" album earlier this year, Karisma Records are set to release a 2CD compilation of JORDSJØ's early work, which had previously only had a limited release on cassettes and vinyl.

The band itself hails from Oslo, Norway, and draws its inspiration from old horror movies, German 70's Synth music, Swedish Prog, fantasy novels and Norwegian nature. The self-titled compilation “Jordsjø”, is a collection of all the song, seventeen in all, drawn from “Jordsjø”, “Jordsjø II” and the split release with BREIDABLIK, “Songs from the Northern Wasteland” cassettes.

As you would expect, the compilation is bursting with nods towards older Prog in general, and Scandinavian Prog in particular. With its underlying themes of alienation, roots and dreams, “Jordsjø” has an organic and dynamic sound which harks back to 70's Prog, with traces of electronic music and folk. The use of of flute, guitars and a vast array of vintage synths results in a warm and vintage sound that still manages to sound fresh and interesting.

Most of the instruments on “Jordsjø” are played by multi-instrumentalist Håkon Oftung (TUSMØRKE, BLACK MAGIC), with drummers Kristian Frøland, Martin Nordrum Kneppen (WOBBLER, TUSMØRKE) and Tore Flatjord. With guest artists Håkon Knutzen (guitars) and Vilde Mortensen Storesund (vocals), artwork for “Jordsjø” is by Elling Borgersrud.
