4 stars After fantastic debut and excellent second album, there were few years and some not so interesting original works and remixes. This album came as a pleasant surprise again.

It's not easy to say, what this music is. Just try to imagine Nordic melancholic saga, with cool and airy atmosphere around mixed with same relaxed club electronics. And the space between these two poles just fill with acoustic jazzy sounds. Not very usual mix, but sounds organically, just differently from all you ever heard before.

Mostly slow or mid-tempo pulsating compositions with electronic loops and sounds, strange acoustic drumming, very ascetic guitar sounds and flying trumpet sound over them. Even some folksy/soul vocals. Not everyone will agree that this music is jazz, but many will like it without any importance how it should be named.

One of the best NPM work!
