Boomkat Product Review:
Outside of his solo career, Viktor Sjoberg is a member of Jens Lekman's live band, but on this new release for Swedish imprint ideal, he finds an innovative approach to rethinking avant-garde jazz. You won't find any flailing leads or wild improv here, only an hour's worth of beautiful freeform drone, which bears little resemblance to jazz as we know it, but oddly, you can see where he's coming from. The minuscule gestures and strangely impersonal piano phrases of 'Freee? I Can't Even Spell The Word' actually offer one of the more 'boisterous' moments on this sublimely slight and considered album, and even the most intense passages here will require either your full attention or a supremely cranked volume knob. Highly recommended, even so.
