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.
