My new solo album is now out!
It was recorded up in the amazing tomb of painter Emanuel Vigeland, and as the reviews are coming in these are of course exciting times. My solo recordings are made in solitude, and handing it over for mastering (to Helge Sten aka Deathprod) and the label, Rune Grammofon, is the first time anybody listens to the final result. From there on it becomes anybody’s music, and it certainly warms cold fingers when you know people are listening.
The Matriarch And The Wrong Kind Of Flowers is available on CD, LP (Blue vinyl (!!!) w/download code) and just plain digitally.
There are also 100 special edition red LP’s around. These are sold only from Rune Grammofon’s website, and from me at selected gigs.
Here are some links to some reviews
