Jonas Sjøvaag & Juhani Silvola - Music for Cities (Shipwreckords 2018)

"An impressive debut" - Eyal Hareuveni

Sjøvaag and Silvola are responsible for a number of productions and bands, both as musicians, producers and technicians. Amongst other things, they stand behind critically acclaimed constellations such as Eple Trio (Sjøvaag) and Summers Silvola duo.

In this collaboration they collect common references and present Music for Cities; a dark album with pulses from popular music, rock and modern European improv. With rare melodic flair, solid rhythmic structures and superbly improvised interaction as key elements through 5 songs, this album is a soundtrack for 2018 that is worth noting.

4. La Peste (08:16)
