Boomkat Product Review:
Norse ambient deity Geir Jenssen lays a two-track marker for his upcoming Biosphere LP ‘The Petrified Forest.’
Clearly reinvigorated by ‘Departed Glories,’ last year’s album-shaped Smalltown Supersound sojourn, Geir Jennsen gears up for a new Biosphere album, ‘The Petrified Forest,’ with this two-track preview. Cinephiles out there might recognise the forthcoming album’s title referencing both a mid-‘30s film noir and a later episode of The Twilight Zone.
The lead track here smartly intersperses dialogue sampled from both these film sources, deftly looping words from Leslie Howard and Joan Lorring together with a typically evocative arctic vista of rhythmic hypnosis and melancholic synthesis.
Lorring’s turn in The Twilight Zone also features on the alluring ambient flurries of Turned To Stone.
