Fiona's Comments

Known for his jazz experimentalism with electronics and his sparse airy sound, Nils adds to his solid discography with more of what's gained him an avid following. Dark textures, ominous percussion, and wavering sound effects highlight this atmospheric album.

About the Album

"Mercury Heart," the opening track to Nils Petter Molvaer's latest release, Baboon Moon, released in Europe earlier this year on his own Sula imprint, and in North America on November 1, 2011 by Thirsty Ear.

Baboon Moon is the Norwegian trumpeter's first record to feature his now-regular touring trio, featuring Stian Westerhus' groundbreaking and unorthodox approach to guitar, and drummer Erland Dahlen, whose kit is expanded with everything from log and steel drums to bowed saw.

"Mercury Heart" represents a hard-edged approach, without losing Molvaer's intrinsic lyricism. Hardcore!
