5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Beauty!, 23 Oct 2013

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: My Sun (Audio CD)
Norwegian duo Mona Andersen and Maria Knudsen are onto something here.
My first encounter with 'My Sun' was a little bit like bumping into two
old friends from the late sixties only to discover that while I had, in the
intervening years, grown more than a little grey and wizened, they,
meanwhile, through some strange enchantment had remained both clear-eyed
and fresh of face. What kind of wizardry is this! It bares thinking about.

M & M make fine music. No doubt about it. There are ten truly beautiful
songs in this set. What the pair have sensitively plundered from the
worlds of folk and psychedelia has been percolated through their innate
musicality into melodies, words and vocal harmonies of pure incandescence.
Their two voices fit so perfectly together that it is sometimes hard to
discern one from the other. They were clearly destined to sing together.

From the reverb-saturated quasi-Californian-beach-town cadences of opening
track 'My Sun'; through the luminous and lovely string-laden invention
'Northern Wind'; the fragile but perfectly-formed lullaby 'Venus' and the
icy and strangely haunting sonic hinterland of 'Let The Light' with its
spectral glissandi and skittering percussion, these hugely talented
seamstresses of sound never drop a stitch! (....and all this before you
reach the sublime 'Runaways', which, channeling 'Court and Spark'-era Joni
Mitchell, is a song to cherish and carry with you for the rest of your days).

Trust me here. It really is THAT good! Don't let M & M dip under your radar.

Essential.

Chanced upon this and can't stop playing it. Mona and Maria are from Norway and deal in a wonderful mix of psych-folk, with its feet very firmly in the sixties/early seventies. The sweeping orchestral arrangements remind me of Nick Drake at times, and the whole collection is a joy from beginning to end. Don't miss it.
