Jordsjø is a prog band from Oslo, Norway inspired by old horror movies, German 70s synth music, Swedish prog, fantasy novels and Norwegian nature. They released three cassettes before releasing their first “proper” album “ Jord ” in March this year. This 2CD release is a collection of all the songs from these three earlier cassette releases: “Jordsjø”, “Jordsjø II” and the split release with Breidablik, “Songs from the Northern Wasteland”. This 2CD set contains plenty of nods to older (especially Scandinavian) prog. There’s an underlying theme of alienation, roots and dreams – with an organic and dynamic sound which gives associations to 70s prog, with traces of electronic music and folk. Plenty of flute, guitars and a vast array of vintage synths – resulting in a warm and vintage sound, while still sounding fresh and interesting.

A varied soundtrack album that manages to weave in a little variation from the traditional type of motion picture scoring indulged in here by Sakamoto. Part of the reason for the variation is that only twelve of the album's 21 tracks are by Sakamoto – several are source music, others were composed by Richard Horowitz. The diversity thus makes for a more interesting album than might have been had from variations on the main minor-key "Sheltering Sky" theme (presented here in orchestrated and piano-based versions.) It also breaks away from the sound of Sakamoto's recordings, strong material that suffers from a certain digital harshness in the strings. Horowitz' part in this is in stepping away from traditional Western scoring and using Middle Eastern elements for score structures – something that's very effective indeed on "Fever Ride" with its blend of Moroccan and Spanish elements. Where Sakamoto easily sketches panorama with his music, Horowitz sketches in mystery. The local source music, too, adds to this, giving the album a grounding in the real world that completes the overall structure. An excellent album that can easily be recommended for more than just soundtrack aficionados.

The first two albums are blessed with a wonderfully damp, wooden power trio sound full of great, effortlessly sweet playing and fine material. This, their final album takes a slight dive into harder driving waters. The guitars are a bit sharper, the tempos and pace a bit more propulsive. But the overall sound remains the same, an open sound with loud, prominent bass tones, snaky melodic lines and thick guitar sounds. It's at least as good as their first two albums, better maybe, if only because of the more purposeful, aggressive performances.

While The Professional marked the American breakthrough of populist French director Luc Besson (and his long-time composer, Eric Serra), the ambitious, futuristic sci-fi adventure The Fifth Element proved to be Besson's stateside sophomore jinx at the box office. Still, Serra's score shouldn't be overlooked. Easily the composer's most digitally daring studio concoction, The Fifth Element offers up a brave stew of synth beats, orchestral flourishes, and ethnic influences ranging from Middle Eastern modalities to Italian operatic arias.

Distinctly Cream-y Swedish power trio November are simply one of the best bands of their era. Using riffs that Sabbath might have thought of, but performing them with a looser, silky flow ala Free or Humble Pie, the band create music that's about the best one could imagine seventies power trio rock to be. Chase this with Toad, Power Of Zeus, Road and Samuel Prody, and you'll have heard some of the classic obscurities of heavy rock. Lyrics are in their native tongue, but that doesn't detract at all, and should keep no-one from checking this album and it's predecessor out.

November’s debut album is an excellent piece of vintage rock and an essential source of inspiration for the contemporary breed of homologous acts.
If the 21st century vintage rock revival has succeeded in anything, it’s that it proved the genre’s great appeal over a much younger audience. On a later stage, the quality of contemporary bands prompted new fans to dig deep and search for their primary sources of inspiration, while older fans started to dust their old vinyls and take their ‘70s trousers out of the closet to see if they still fit in them. Above all countries, Sweden has warmly embraced vintage and progressive rock, ever since its atypical birth during the late ‘60s/early ‘70s…

The rules of the game were clear when the credits for the soundtrack of Aki Kaurismäki's debut film Crime and Punishment gave the names Franz Schubert, Dmitri Shostakovich, Olavi Virta, the Renegades, Harri Marstio and Billie Holiday. Dostoevskian to say the least! Added to these as Kaurismaki’s career progressed were Tchaikovsky (the Pathetique Symphony a dozen or so times!), Shostakovich, Chuck Berry, the great Estonian Georg Ots, rhythm & blues, Finnish rock’n’roll (Melrose, with Tokela in the vocal lead), Jussi Bjorling, and Toshitake Shinohara - the Japanese composer of a host of beautiful scores now settled permanently in Karkkila, home of Kaurismäki himself. Not all are familiar to a non-Finnish audience. Yet Finn and foreigner, familiar and unfamiliar are as such one seamless entity, their associations equally fascinating. The director himself says he grabs armfuls of discs off his shelf at home before setting off for the editing room.
