    "Sart is the debut full-length cd from Norwegian duo Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik and Rune Sagevik, collectively known as Pjusk. First heard on 12k’s Blueprints (12k1039) compilation, Pjusk’s sound can be characterized as warm, dark, delicate, and wet. Sart builds a cavernous scape that listens like a surreal storybook, utilizing a…"

    RELEASES

    "Pjusk is Rune Sagevik and Jostein Dahl Gjelsvik from the west coast of Norway – both from small villages close to nature. The sound of Pjusk is inspired by the harsh Norwegian weather and wild landscape. At the center point of the collaboration between the two is an old cabin…"

    "This one deserves to be savoured without me telling you every last detail about it – it’s all about the joy of discovery with this one."
  • 12K1059-BOOMKAT

    REVIEWS

    "When 12k describe this music as "lush, wet, textured ambience" they're not kidding; the resonant drips and twitches of 'Demring' are halfway between the broken filtered dub of Pole and the sound of a melting glacier."
  • PJUSK REVIEW ON SMALLFISH

    NEWS

    "Pjusk’s first album for 12k was without doubt one of my favourite releases on the label. I’ve been going back to it regularly since it came out and even now it just has a certain indefinable quality that makes it stand out."

  • 12K1059-BLEEP

    REVIEWS

    "Plunged into the depths of frosted drone-noise, arching, sustained synth washes, melancholic piano phrases and hushed vocals, half-remembered from Cocteau Twins records"

  • 12K1059-FJUORDMUSIKK

    REVIEWS

    "Det er mange lyder på dette albumet, og selv om flesteparten har blitt behandlet på en eller annen måte, er det et organisk inntrykk som står igjen. "
  • 12K10589-FOXY

    REVIEWS

    "Sval flows interrupted, porous, with compositions assuming their own character after a time before the next gradual melt or crystallization into another mood."
  • 12K1059-DMUTE

    REVIEWS

    "On se sent minuscule lorsque l'on écoute la musique de Pjusk. Quelque soit l'endroit dans lequel on s'imagine transporté, il s'étend à perte de vue. Cela pourrait bien être le cosmos, tant l'apesanteur est perceptible."
  • 12K1059-FURTHER NOISE

    REVIEWS

    "This accomplished release illustrates the enduring breadth and strength of the microsound and minimalist tradition of the 12k/Line enterprise."
  • 12K1059-TONE SHIFT

    REVIEWS

    "Here there’s a quiet cadence rippling through thick, dreamy tones. Just the perfect blend of ambient to minimal percussion. Reminds me of early work on Chain Reaction, without definitive beats, more organic and flowing here — gauzy and textural in an airy way."
  • 12K1059-DUSTED

    REVIEWS

    "Together, the opening tracks “Valldal” and “Sus” are the best work the duo has done to date."
