Joe McPhee & Paal Nilssen-Love
""Red Sky comes from folk lore of sailorsill and farmers predicting or forecasting weather. I use it here as a metaphor for looking backward and forward at the saem time, remember the past (lest we be doomed to repeat it) but with an eye to the future. [...]" -Joe McPhee, from the liner notes."
Jojo Hiroshige / Pika / Paal Nilssen-Love / Lasse Marhaug
"The quartet of two drummers, Paal-Nilssen-Love & Pika, and two noise artists, JoJo Hiroshige & Lasse Marhaug, performing live at Osaka Chika-Ikkai for six intense, powerful and informed noise improvisations."
Lacerda / Manso / Nilssen-Love / Zenicola
"A live recording of two extended improvisations at Audio Rebel's Quintavant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from the quartet of Arthur Lacerda on guitar and electronics, electric bassist Felipe Zenicola, guitarist Eduardo Manso, and drummer/percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love. "Bota" is a groove-oriented jam, Zenicola and Nilssen-Love carrying the pulse while the guitarists work above, ending with a degenerating electronic display. "Fogo" is the freer of the two, staring quietly and building into a wonderfully driving piece, with Nilssen-Love pulling out the stops with unpredictable and solid rhythmic intensity while Zenicola churns below. A powerful performance from Rio!"
"Fluku is a superb album, dynamic, adventurous, colorful and innovative. If you have the chance to see the band live, don’t miss it."
