Boomkat Product Review:
Fe-mail, a duo formed by Spunk's Maja Ratkje and Hild Sofie Tafjord, should by rights be regarded as one of the finest noise acts of our age. Anyone who's yet to hear their Syklubb Fra Haelvete album would be doing themselves a great service by checking it out, but in the interim their 2006 album Voluptuous vultures is well worth your attention. Across this four-track release the duo set about improvising through an array of noise making bric-a-brac with Maja's always remarkable vocal at the heart of much of the action. Fe-mail's music manages to be simultaneously extreme, confrontational, playful and packed with musical invention - the title track makes this abundantly clear, juggling incredible power electronics and concrete sound treatments with wonderful slapstick larynx acrobatics from Ratkje. Highly recommended.
