Boomkat Product Review:
The esteemed Norwegian troupe forge a tougher, dizzying sound galvanised by electronic experimentation in their 6th studio album. Since their last LP, 'Live With Britten Sinfonia' (2013), the band's principle song-writer Lars Hortveth took off to L.A. where, inspired by the scale of space and its flashing neon lights, he started composing the material which would become 'Starfire'. Recorded back in Oslo at his band's own studio, the album neatly transposes the rolling, glittering landscapes of California to Jaga Jazzist's rockier topographies and smart jazz chops, manifesting a wide-scoped album mixing epic synth themes right out of '80s Hollywood with deft drum breaks, crashing machine drums and wobbly, restlessly playful electronics. The results cross between Goblin's prime late '70s prog, David Axelrod-like funk, and searing electro-jazz fusion, often all within the same track.
