Huntsville

Norway’s HUNTSVILLE delves into an adventurous crossbreed of rock, drones, country, jazz and electro-acoustic improvisation. Boston Weekly described their 2006 debut “for the middle class” on Rune Grammofon: «armed with a banjo, a double bass, a pedal steel, a bizarre tabla machine, shruti boxes and a fondness for freeing folk from its folk songs - from Santa Fe to Bombay.» Huntsville’s unexpected sounds and textures, allied with echoes of traditional genres in a radical new conceptual language have been labelled abstract drone Americana and yoga country.

On their third album named For Flowers, Cars and Wars (Hubro), they dig deeper into their striking and original sound world - this time with riffing electric guitars, hard-hitting drums, electronic noise and their secret weapon: a drone commander... and still - a deep fascination for American folk.

“...they alternate between brief Americana-esque instrumentals and lenghtier excursions into fast, fluid motion, attaining trance-velocity like some rare amalgam of Miles Davies, Steve Reich and early Tortoise.” Rock-A-Rolla (UK)
