Gaute Granli - Animalskt

Gaute Granli

The first full-length compact disc release by Gaute Granli features the
Stavanger, Norway-based musician using Jandekian guitar and experimental
electronics to fashion a hazy, skronky, left-field, blue exotica noir
that’s toppled with confusion and discomfort.

The original compositions, often supported by a diseased drum machine
and/or jangling guitar loop and/or narcotic-abused electronics,
demonstrates a pluckier guitar sound and some “rock song structures” from
the member of Scandinavian noise rock band Freddy the Dyke.

“Can’t Have More Fun” is an unhinged romp through a decaying scene of
blips and bloops and features sardonic, nonfigurative vocals, while the
title track could be an appropriate tune to play over and over and over
while stuck inside for eight consecutive months due to the Scandinavian

The sing-along quality of “Medisinert” eventually disintegrates into an
abstract curly Q guitar predicament, and then the tune bleeds into “Kennel
Soda,” which might lull the listener into a deep sleep on top of a bed of
sharp pebbles.

The nine-track album concludes with the penultimate “Middlemådig Blå
Blues,” an all-instrumental cold plunge into the inanity of existence, and
the final nail in the coffin, “Ride of the Year,” which features vocals by
Oslo-based contemporary visual artist and musician Urd J. Pedersen.
