Reviews BOL&SNAH “So? Now ?”

A powerful meeting… “Intricate and open pop inspired by Joni Mitchell,spoken word ,”Sonic Youth – like” art-rock with an edge, and volcanic prog….” Vegard Enlid , Adressa ! (5/6)

” …. both rockers and jazz people with open senses will have plenty of reasons to enjoy
” So? What? ” . ” Tor Hammerø blogg.no

” You should give up any kind of  resistance , because So ? What? is a powerful delight for the ear and should be obligatory for anyone who likes music. This is Genre-crushing at its most beautiful . This is a classic for those who seek the irresistible . ” Tor Stemland, Musikk fra Norge

4 stars in Jazzwise!

“And what might tomorrow’s sound be, if you could hear it today?

“A beautiful and inventive achievement.”

EYAL HAREUVENI,  April 15, 2012 All about Jazz,(US)

“This album perfectly exemplifies that it´s possible to make new soundscapes using traditional instruments like vocals and drums.”

Trygve Lundemo, Adressa, Trondheim , Norway (5/6)

«Space Jazz»   It could have been a new galaxy, but «Voxpheria» is introduced as the soundscape that´s created when the electro-acoustic improvisers Tone Åse and Thomas Strønen meet. Åse, who once co-founded Kvitretten, who is the leader in Trondheim Voices and has her own band Bol, has been an important voice in the field […]
