  • News from Rune Grammofon

    From the Rune Grammofon site:

    In late May we will have a double release, MoHa!´s new scorcher "Norwegianism" will be released at the same time as Ultralyd´s "Conditions For A Piece Of Music". Ultralyd is Anders Hana (guitar) and Morten J. Olsen (drums) from MoHa! as well as ace sax player Kjetil Møster and Noxagt bassist Kjetil D. Brandsdal. Ultralyd is nothing like MoHa! and can possibly be described as a kind of slow contemporary chamber rock. Quite unlike anything else. Both albums will be available on cd and limited edition vinyl.

    Release date: 21st of May 2007

    RCD 2064 - MoHa!: Norwegianism



    Out of Norway's super-fertile impro scene, MoHa! are boldly leading the way with a sound that encompasses the best of rock, free jazz and electronic music. Despite the enormity and broad spectrum of sounds that constitute their unique style, it is the work of just two talented young men, Anders Hana (24) on guitar, obsolete electronics and a pallete of effects pedals, and Morten J. Olsen (25) on drums, triggering a multitude of noises from each skin and cymbal using custom built software. Having played together in various projects for close to 10 years, they have developed a high level of control and understanding in their musical communication. They compliment and confront each other, with sharp and mechanical movements on one hand, free flowing and loose gestures on the other. It´s a real scorcher; short, intense, to the point and brimming with head explosions, youthful energy and urgency.

    RCD 2065 - Ultralyd: Conditions For A Piece Of Music



    Ultralyd is Kjetil Møster (The Core) on sax, Anders Hana (MoHa!) on guitar, Kjetil D. Brandsdal (Noxagt) on bass and Morten J. Olsen (MoHa!) on drums and vibraphone. This is their third album since the band was formed by legendary sax player Frode Gjerstad in 2004. Gjerstad left after their second album ”Chromosome Gun” (Load Records) to be replaced by Møster. During two extensive European tours and several studio sessions Ultralyd's direction has slowly changed from a rather chaotic free rock approach towards composition and more structured forms of improvisation, experimenting with different layers and altered roles of the instruments, integrating elements from contemporary music, electronic music, funk and doom metal and ending up with an album that might be classified as the kind of chamber rock King Crimson were doing in their Starless-period. Please note that it is also being released as a limited LP vinyl edition.
