Boomkat product review for:

sidsel endresen & stian westerhus - Didymoi Dreams

Rune Grammofon pair two of Norway's leading improvisers in a strikingly unique partnership of vocals and guitar. In the explorative tradition of their country's forward thinking and tightly knit musical community, lauded vocal improviser Sidsel Endresen - known for her work with Deathprod and most recently Humcrush - alternately riffs in knotted, shredded tongues and curling, glossolalic sputter against a constantly shifting moire of loop pedalled FX and treated guitar hacked out by her much younger counterpart (and former Jaga Jazzist) Stian Westerhus. It's far from academic exercise, offering something strange, often somehow sexy, and certainly otherworldly, from their combined chemistry. It was actually performed and captured live at Nattjazz festival in Bergen, but you'd hardly tell - the recording is assuredly up to Rune Grammofon's impeccable standards - and packaged with Kim Hiorthøy's beautiful jacket, it's quite a special album.
