Product Description

Product Description

In Cinema is the magnificent and eagerly-anticipated new album from Finnish band Oddarrang. With a new home at innovative UK label Edition Records, Oddarrang s third album stands as their most accomplished to date. Not only have they confirmed the promise of the hugely successful Music Illustrated (2007) and Cathedral (2011) but they ve also developed a formidable reputation as one of the most exciting new acts to emerge from Scandinavia to date. The title In Cinema provides a clue to the darker, edgier, sound of this work compared to the earlier albums. Originally written for four independent films and later developed for the album, these soundscapes are uncompromising, contrasting emotive melodies that reach deep and touch the listener on a very personal level with intense dynamic pick-ups built on potent guitar riffs and uplifting, soaring melodies carried by the unusual cello/trombone front line and underpinned by staunch bass playing. This is jazz at its most uncompromising and experimental, the post-modern influence of bands such as Mogwai and Sigur Ros is clear. Oddarrang are ready for take off; In Cinema is the launch pad.


Oddarrang are the Finnish ensemble that so impressed at last year's London jazz festival with music that seemed to segue from the laconic lyricism of Ennio Morricone to free jazz to the rock-anthem crescendos of the late Esbjorn Svensson group, featuring a quirky lineup including electric guitar, cello and trombone. Four tracks on this, their third album, were originally written for movies, and they sound like it. At first, it's like a classic north-Euro ECM session, but Lasse Sakara's guitar twang eventually introduces a repeating three-note hook, Ilmari Pohjola's plush trombone tone embraces it, and Osmo Ikonen's cello enters with a melody that could have come from a traditional Irish folk song. Themes as fresh yet familiar-sounding as that turn up throughout, but in settings that are sometimes gentle, sometimes ferociously heated. Missing Tapes from A Highway Set mixes bouzouki-like strummings with a military tattoo, while The Sage is very Morricone-like. There's plenty of jazz in this accessible and sometimes majestic album, but you don't have to be a jazzer to get it. FOUR STARS --The Guardian

A recording closer to the kind of Nordic ambient post-rock of bands such as Sigur Ros but with the kind of minimalistic jazz improv sensibilities that point to the UK's Cinematic Orchestra...A wider audience beckons for Oddarrang's intelligent and highly mesmering cinematic dreamscapes. FOUR STARS --Jazzwise

IMAGINE....... a vast landscape... panning around to take in distant mountains, forests and luminous skies... and a cinematic soundtrack portraying an ever-changing vista of climatic conditions... daybreak, sunlight, rainstorm, quiescence, afterglow...

This third outing from Oddarrang - `In Cinema' - sees them building significantly on their previous releases, `Music Illustrated' and `Cathedral'. The Finnish five-piece's precise sound is delightfully difficult to define - maybe `experimental jazz', perhaps `new age' or even `folk jazz'. And, intruigingly, the shifting timbres and hues are created by a refreshingly atypical instrumental line-up: the masterly and lyrical lead of trombonist Ilmari Pohjola and cellist Osmo Ikonen soloing over strong-yet-sensitive layers of guitars, bass, synths, piano and harmonium. Composer/producer Olavi Louhivuori (also known for his work with the Tomasz Stanko Quintet and Alexi Tuomarila Trio) presides on drums as well as keyboards, his authoritative percussion a key element of the band's identity.

The `new age' tag comes from comparisons I can make with the early output of Mike Oldfield - the repeated guitar lines, percussion and plaintive melodies of third track `Missing Tapes from a Highway Set', for example, reminiscent of `Hergest Ridge' or its seminal predecessor `Tubular Bells'. But this is no imitation, for it lives and breathes by its own strengths - a hugely distinctive sound palette with a terrific sense of dynamics and intricacy; compositions often growing in intensity, such as Lasse Sakara's guitar-led ticking timebomb of `The Sage' which eventually explodes in dazzling full colour.
