Salvatore - Fresh
Label: Racing Junior
Format: CD


Third album from increasingly respected "spacey instrumental drone rock" Norwegian group Salvatore, whose next album will be produced by John McEntire from Tortoise

Norway’s Racing Junior have been surprisingly prolific in their output of (shock-horror) Good Norwegian Music That Isn’t Black Metal lately. Salvatore may deal in spacey instrumental drone rock, but next to label mates Portrait of David this is nothing short of party music. ‘Fresh’ has a cool atmosphere too, sounding like Mexico being rerouted through Scandinavia. The sleeve notes tell of an experience in Morocco - where the band recorded the album - where a guy tries to hustle them but “he got a Japanese boy instead”. His loss. Apparently they’re currently working with John McEntire, which is appropriate considering they frequently sound like Tortoise playing in a fishtank.
