Needlepoint - Outside The Screen

This is the second album by this interesting, songs-with-vocals format, electric jazz/rock band, which means they come out somewhere between Caravan or Wigwam in the song department and Tony Williams Lifetime/Mahavishnu Orchestra/Elephant9 in the jazz/rock department!

The bassist is actually from Elephant9 and the drummer is from the Rune Grammofon bands Humcrush and Food.

I thought that this was basically really different by bringing two different sounds together in a really pleasing way!

Bjørn Kakegg-electric & acoustic guitars, vocals
David Wallumrød-Hammond organ, clavinet, upright piano
Nikoai Haengsle Eilertsen-bass
Thomas Strønen-drums

"An incredible original band... The instrumental opening track is alone worth the price of this progressive oasis. Fantastic musical interaction, an understanding of groove that many jazz-rock groups forgot in all their cleverness... This is exciting music that you rarely hear these days. At one point melancholic, moody pop, slightly psychedelic and groovy, – then it turns into progressive jazz-rock, oozing from intelligent and refined interplay."-Dramen Tidende
