Co słychać u Maji Ratkje? (PL)

Nowamuzyka 2006: Jeśli ktoś czytał mój przewodnik po płytach Rune Gramofon, to być może pamięta zachwyt (który absolutnie podtrzymuję) dla solowego krążka Mai Ratkje – “Voice”. Od tego czasu postanowiłem śledzić uważnie wszystkie jej przedsięwzięcia. A jest w czym wybierać – kwartet SPUNK, jego połowa – Fe-Mail i duety. Jeśli ktoś czytał mój przewodnik po

Blixter Toad reviewed by Gaz-Eta

The biggest shock comes in the form of the 13 minute long “Ballad”. Nearly a non-song, rather this seems to be the duo’s venture into the world of pure ambience. I kid you not.
