Matt Valentine & Erika Elder (MV & EE) @ Landet – 10 09 07 – Landet – Stockholm

MV & EE (US, Ecstatic Peace!)

MV & EE is a Vermont based group of musicians focused around Matt ”MV” Valentine and his partner Erika ”EE” Elder. Matt Valentine was in the neo-psychedelic group, The Tower Recordings and has also released music under his own name and the pseudonym, Matthew Dell. While the duo recorded under many different names, including MV & EE Medicine Show and The Bummer Road, most of the records centre around both artists and feature a rotating cast of additional musicians. Their style is self-described as ”lunar ragas”, with many of the lyrics dealing with celestial imagery. They combine Indian raga style composition with Appalachian Folk and post-psychedelia electrical experimentalism. They use Western and Eastern acoustic instruments amplified and augmented with effects such as reverb, delay and flange Their compositions occasionally feature vocals, which are off-kilter and rambling. Which will be fun

Some reviews of their latest release; Barn Nova out on Ecstatic Peace! (Thurston Moore’s label) ….

”The album feels dense, but at only 42 minutes is actually blissfully brief, and I think a lot of listeners will find themselves coming back to this record for as long as they long for warm summer evenings on cold winter nights.” – PopMatters

”It’s a killer, it’s a Masterpiece Killer.” – Strangeglue

””The herb and the everyone’s-an-artist spirit remain, but — thankfully — it’s encapsulated in an appreciation for the last 40 years of rebellious music.” Dusted

”Chances are–and we like to speak for everybody because that’s what webzines do–you will find that your collection won’t be complete without Barn Nova. Rightfully so.” Electronic Voice Phenomenon

Sus&Jakob (Den/Swe)

Man har inte hört mycket från Jakob Olausson sedan hans debutalbum Moonlight Farm på prestigefyllda holländska skivbolaget De Stijl. Sus&Jakob är dock inte alls som Olaussons mer folkiga soloprojekt. Duon bygger istället sin musik på någon form av improvisation med anor från såväl psykadelika som jazztraditionen, samtidigt som en genuint obehaglig och skev känsla sammanfogar helhetsbilden. Som referenspunkter har vi fått Patty Waters, Linda Sharrock, Brother Ahh, Strange Strings och Sun Ra, men det finns nog helt enkelt inget annat som låter såhär. Sättningen är diverse percussion, valthorn, tvärflöjt samt en rejäl dos galen sång, och det borde räcka gott och väl för att väcka ert intresse.

“They fried their power strip during soundcheck at the first gig in Nashville. An overwhelmed Klyd Watkins was in the audience, and the poet was later reported being ”lost for words” when taking off into the night… It sure is recalling the homeburned jazz sounds of the past.” -Jacques S’moi, Lyon France

Lust For Youth (Gbg)

Efter ett drygt halvår i diskret anonymitet trädde Lust for Youth fram ur mörkret förra hösten. Sedan bandet bildades för lite drygt ett år sedan har duon bestående av Amanda Eriksson och Hannes Norrvide (alias Viking Jews) hunnit släppa mycket smått och gott; bland annat kassetten ”Sickness”, en splitkassett med Street Drinkers, och en splitsjua med amerikanska neogotharna Blessure Grave. Lust for Youth har tidigare i år gjort Italien osäkert tillsammans med svenska noisebrutalisten Sewer Election, och även om deras musik inte är fullt lika kaotisk som den sistnämnda, så är den minst lika intensiv. Den kan beskrivas som någon sorts smutsig, surrealistisk dronepop byggd på toner från allehanda casiokeyboards och effektpedaler. För er som missade deras senaste spelning här på grund av snöstormen i februari, är det ett ypperligt tillfälle att se en av Sveriges mest annorlunda liveakter.

And all this for only 60kr

Om Johan

Johan är en entusiastisk frossare i allsköns musik och alltjämt nyfiken på nya öronfröjder. Särskilt svag för svängiga saker från förr, gärna av icke-västerländskt slag, likväl som för samtida genreolydiga glädjespridare. Johan musikbloggar även på egen hand på Jo/No's Audio Delights.
