On Huntsvilles very first release on 24Bit and vinyl, "For Flowers, Cars and Merry War", the group is heading in a heavier, darker, more rock-flavoured and electric direction.

Huntsville, an improvisational trio with a distinctive sound, has already released two unique, critically acclaimed albums on the Norwegian label Rune Grammofon. The group has toured in Europe and the USA several times, has collaborated with Sidsel Endresen, Wilcos Nels Cline and Glenn Kotche, and recently held a concert in Spain with Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth.

On the monumental track that fills the entire A side they are joined by the superb alternative pop vocalist Hanne Hukkelberg.  The album was mixed at Propeller Studios with KÃ¥re Chr. Vestrheim (Motorpsycho, Jaga Jazzist) at the board. This is clearly the most cohesive album the trio has made so far. Hypnotic and energetic music that deserves to be played at a high volume.

 

Huntsville are:

Ivar Grydeland – guitars, banjo, pedal steel guitar and various instruments

Tonny Kluften – electric bass, double bass, bass pedals and various instruments

Ingar Zach – percussion, tabla machine, sarangi box, sruti box, drone commander and various instruments

After their 2006 debut “for the middle class” (Rune Grammofon) Boston Weekly wrote: «armed with a banjo, a double bass, a pedal steel, a bizarre tabla machine, shruti boxes and a fondness for freeing folk from its folk songs — from Santa Fe to Bombay.» Huntsville’s unexpected sounds and textures, allied with echoes of traditional genres in a radical new conceptual language have been described as abstract drone Americana and yoga country.

On their second album, the double release “eco, arches & eras” (Rune Grammofon, 2008), they dig even deeper into their striking and original sound world – this time with riffing electric guitars, hard-hitting drums and th...
