Track Of The Day: Atlanter - 'Waking'

From one of 2013's finest albums, here's another track from Atlanter's brilliant 'Vidde', released a couple of months ago. 

According to the press release “The band describe their thoroughly eclectic sound as 'Viddeblues'. 'Vidde' in Norwegian, refers to an open mountain landscape; an image as elemental as their blues and folklore inspired roots”. This album does a great job of conjuring up such mental illustrations, a record that inspires the imagination to paint vivid pictures. The band are led by Jens Carelius and Arild Hammerø, with percussionist Jonas Barsten Johnsen and bassist Morten Kvam bringing together musical experiences within from jazz, folk, rock and improv music. Combine the aforementioned styles with touches of psychedelica and prog, along with a subtle baroque flavour, and you get one of this year’s most fascinating and enticing records.The soaring, mysteriously epic beauty of ‘Waking’ proves their superb ability to convey powerful moods and atmospheres.
