LARS HORNTVETH: 4 OUT OF 5 IN GUARDIAN

"Reeds player Lars Horntveth was one of the brains behind Jaga Jazzist, the clubby, noisy mini-big band who gave an extra jolt to the already buzzing Norwegian scene several years ago. His new album, Kaleidoscopic, is more self-consciously grown-up, and, by its very nature, poses several interesting challenges. For a start, it is a continuous ...

LINDSTRØM: MOJO LP REVIEW

"The Norwegian producer and remixer`s warmly received 2008 debut full-lengther, newly re-edited for vinyl.

"37 minutes long filmic compositions recorded with the Latvian National Orchestra don`t arrive at the Fact towers on a regular basis, but thats our loss if they sound as good and charming as this.
