Boomkat Product Review
**The incomparable Norwegian oddities with a genre-defying, anachronistic document of their personal psychedelic visions** "Mainstays with Rune Grammofon since their debut "Red Shift Swing" in 1999, their new album "Unemployed" finds them on top of their game with what is arguably their finest effort so far. It was recorded in a wide range of spaces and places, from recordings of Haugan and Eide as street musicians in San Francisco while touring, to scavenging old collections of 78-records int he mining town of Bjørnevatn in the far north-eastern part of Norway. From on-the-spot recordings of Sigbjørn Apeland's legendary collection of vintage harmoniums int he St. Jakobs Church in Bergen, to high-end capture of the unique sounds of Alog's many custom built instruments in the studios of Notam in Oslo and BEK in Bergen. For a period of three years Alog collected material from all kinds of sources, times and situations and made new songs that constantly pushed their creative freedom in unexpected directions. Playful, adventurous, mysterious and exploring, this is 76 minutes of experiemntal, yet accessible, music of the very finest sort and comes highly recommended". Cosign!
