Review of Sval [12k1059]

Bleep (.COM)

Taylor Deupree’s 12k label is the carrier for this Norwegian duo of J ostein Dahl Gjelsvik and Rune Sagevik and their masterfully crafted Sval record. Plunged into the depths of frosted drone-noise, arching, sustained synth washes, melancholic piano phrases and hushed vocals, half-remembered from Cocteau Twins records. A delicious work, big tip for fans of Erased Tapes, Touch.
