KDB

(KDB) Used LP $12.00

Lo-fi, droning, tape-looped improv spew devoid of drums, with most rhythms coming from tape loops or guitar parts, and generally levitating the consciousness pretty effectively in a ceilingward direction. Headphone listening reveals some pretty cool mix-work while retaining a unique Nordic grittiness in sound. Paste-on front and back cover

Kjetil D. Bransdal / Mikaël Trémel

(Smalltown Supersound) Used LP $5.00

Distracted guitar picking, disharmony, flimsy organ tones and a peculiar rhythmic sense make up the main body of this relatively low-key album from 1999, which at times leans toward jazz and then recalls a seething little kid’s first discovery of the piano. Generic black jacket with centerhole and paste-on artwork

Rogalands Lydigste

(Swill Radio) Used LP $15.00

Distinctive, uncompromising and minimalist instrumental music from 1999. Guitar played with the imminent threat of screams, whines and surreptitious tones. Definitely rock for the advanced. Sealed
