Norway’s HUNTSVILLE delves further into an adventurous crossbreed of rock, drones, country, jazz and electro-acoustic improvisation. 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.
