I am so proud of this release. I think we really found something there. Something great. Have a listen.
From the press release:
This is the new PYSJ. It consists of Solveig Sørbø (comp), Saleh Mahfoud, Torgeir Koppang, Leila Matta and Michaela Antalová. Jazz people think our music is indie pop, alternative people think it’s ambient folk and rock, world music people think it’s jazz and no idea what rock people think. Frankly, we don’t care – we just make the best music we can. The two original core tracks feature the microtonal instruments yayli tanbur and qanun along with funky rhodes, impressionistic modal piano, progressive drums, spherical guitar and soaring vocals. They are a product of a long gestation period crystallizing the compositions and some studio magic breathing life into every bit of the sonic landscape. is the highly cultivated version of Pysj’s special sound. Mastermind Solveig Sørbø supplies eclectic compositions brought to life by some of Norway’s finest musicians drawing from various backgrounds and styles.
Also it is worth mentioning that this is released on my own brand new label : Soursoil Rec.
