Music for Loving

Bottrop-Boy: “Second collaboration between Norwegian masters of noise Maja Ratkje (Spunk, Fe-Mail) and Lasse Marhaug (Jazzkammer, Del) after their 2002 vinyl-only album Music For Shopping on Synesthetic Records. Music For Loving is wild, frantic, nervous, loud, delirious and scattered all over the place. The perfect music to listen to with your loved one.” [intlink id=”3726″

Den øverste toppen på en blåmalt flaggstang

Rune Grammofon: “The new studio album from this increasingly exciting and colourful quartet boasts yet another Pippi Longstocking related title. This free spirited and anti authoritarian character is one of the most loved and wellknown from the late, great Swedish author of childrens books, Astrid Lindgren. It translates “The very top of a bluepainted flagpole”
