Dahlen, Erland - Rolling Bomber Rolling Bomber
Jazz New - LP LP 3512 Hubro
New, Unplayed 2011 Original Housed In A Laminated Jacket. "Proof That His Kit Is The Central Focus Of This Intriguing Debut Lies In Its Title: The Rolling Bomber Is A Slingerland Drum Set From The Second World War Era Made Out Of Rosewood. (Most Metal Was Required By The War Effort.) Consequently Its Tone Is Unusually Warm, Despite The Recording Sessions Taking Place In An Abandoned Oslo Coffee Factory, And Dahlen’s Approach Is Also Far From Conventional. At Times It Seems As Though No Part Of His Kit Is Safe From His Sticks, And The Additional Use Of Electronic Embellishments And A Musical Saw – Both Used Sparingly But Resourcefully – Mean There’s No Monkey Wrench Here For Arena Crowds. Instead There Are Seven Tracks Of Crepuscular Intensity That Combine A Love For Complex But Driving Rhythms And The Free Structure And Experimentation For Which Norwegian Jazz Is Known. Flower Power Sounds Like A Music Box Malfunctioning As It Falls Down A Grand But Squeaky Wooden Staircase – A Recommendation, As It Happens – And Monkey Could Be A Lalo Schifrin Soundtrack Stripped Of All But Its Percussion And Sound Effects. Piratman, Full Of Cymbal Splashes And Eerie Sounds, Is Particularly Effective, A Distant Cousin Of Moon Over Morphosa, The 2004 Collaboration Between Sometime Stooges Drummer Toby Dammit And Bad Seeds Drummer Thomas Wydler. Overall, It’s Confusing, Sometimes Creepy, With Anthems Entirely Absent, But It’s Also An Enlightening Reminder Of How Versatile A Simple Drum Kit Can Be."BBC... more details
