- Press quotes -
"One of my big discoveries of 2010 was an intriguing new label, Jvtlandt. Its first batch of four releases initially seems rather miscellaneous, but there are commonalities which indicate a strong personal interest in their production and dissemination which suggests that the label will be worth keeping an eye on in the future."
"usædvanligt interessante, kompromisløse, vilde, lavmælte og sågar storslåede værker."
Geiger recommends (Danish)
"a meticulously realised real-time improvisation that favours close listening and exhibits a sensibility that verges on third-stream chamber music. It’s unconventional, but effortlessly so. "
"All musik är improviserad och det låter allt annat än typisk impro om det hela." "Små cymbaler, klockor, kedjor och annat metalliskt slagverk skapar en alltmer förtätad ljudmiljö som så småningom får sällskap av en lika melodisk som rytmisk gitarr. Stilarna fogas samman på ett sätt som känns både nytt och intressant."
"The outcome is quite intense and enigmatic. Vognsen's clever manipulations of his guitars' sounds melt with Takara's prepared timpani and the soft, distant sound of her vibes and Yoshigaki's spare drumming; the music references Western and Eastern folk scales, repetitive minimalist structures and ambient sound-poems."
"...a remarkably coherent progression through a range of moods, from real-time musical interplay through a range of moods and atmospheres. "
"...denne imponerende, storslåede, så gennemkomponerede og hele vejen igennem dragende komposition. (...) et gennemført og ambitiøst værk (...) fremstår det mildt talt originalt og bare rigtig, rigtig godt."
"a unique musical observation about something those of us living in the first world may take for granted"
"A strange multilayered and at the same time accessible work."
"...en riktigt originell förening av lågmäld fri improvisation, folk, ambient, fältinspelningar, extatisk postrock och en skvätt nutida konstmusik."
"...un grand projet dont deux premières parties ont paru en CD. King Hussein Bridge & Allenby Bridge Crossing Point sont deux invitations au voyage faits de field recordings et de la musique d’une formation guitare / vibraphone / batterie. Des ambiances de poste-frontières saupoudré de pop ou de folk, dans le meilleur des cas d’atmosphères nocturnes."
"Emergency play with urgency, but no aimless flailing. It all goes somewhere."
"Killer. That's what they call a barnburner." "Oh yeah that thing (Emergency!) is a monster."
"...a gorgeous and breathtaking journey." "..they use each composition as a point of departure for very free and noisy explorations. Delicious!"
"Emergency! really do impress. (...) "Sing, Sing, Sing" is fascinating, fun and soaring. Lots of action going on in this one. It's worth continued listens and probably worth the price of the CD altogether. (...) While Emergency! are categorized as an experimental outfit, Live In Copenhagen demonstrates that this quartet has vision and structure that goes far beyond experimental. Highly Recommended."
"It delivers just the sort of power jazz you might expect from a group of this configuration, with at least one of the guitars peeling off abrasive riffs in a fashion heavily indented to Fred Frith’s work for Massacre. (...) “Live in Copenhagen” is a righteous blast from tip to tail."
"Unlike some Downtown artists, the group's rocked-out two-guitar/bass/drums jazz is presented without pretension. These are not artists posing for sake of irony. (...) Mingus would have loved the surf guitar additions, extra-heavy vamp, and rapid time changes. (...) All quite brilliant."
“Un album joueur qui s’ébroue aux lisières des genres, et un très joli travail du petit label danois jvtlandt !”
"...skamløst levende - så frådende, hungrende, amokdansende iltert.” “...en så levende, legende, livlig instrumentfølelse, en så hørbart smittende spilleglæde, energi, at man ikke kan andet end at være imponeret, duperet og lykkelig."
"Støj i opløsning veksles med heftige rytmer. Overstyrede heavyriffs veksles med groovy bund. (...) ...imponerende. Sjældent, om nogensinde har jeg hørt så meget feedback, brugt så elegant og sammenhængende som Emergency gør. Det er besættende smukt."
"Yamauchi displays formidable purity of conception..."
"...en imponerende, dybt fascinerende, virtuos og original instrumentalist... kolossalt kraftfulde kompostioner... En meget gennemført udgivelse."
"No matter how obnoxiously aggressive Pupillo's malicious throttling of the cavern notes and Nilssen-Love's onward driving splatter, there's something invariably tranquil about the vibraphone. Raids On The Unspeakable therefore achieves a uniquely unsettling (im)balance between primal brutality and seraphic benificence."
"...features Pupilo building dense layers of distorted and scorching sounds through Nilssen-Love's uncompromising drumming, but the addition of Takara's vibes inject an openness and tenderness to this tough mix. (...) ...presents the telepathic interplay of this unique trio, while continuing to explore shifting grooves—deeper and deeper into uncompromising rhythm—with humor, elegance and fearless determination. With Raids On The Unspeakable, this trio demonstrates a rare potential. Hopefully it won't be long until its next release."
"The trio manages to create a heavy and powerful sound, full of darkness and forward drive, keeping the tension even in the sparse lower volume moments."
"hæsblæsende rytmisk ondskab, som meloditeksturerne fra vibrafonen omgærder med en vis mystik. (...) Raids on the Unspeakable er medrivende disharmoni, medrivende onde grooves."
"...balancegangen mellem konservatorienørdet instrumentnørkleri og simpel musikalsk begejstring udføres sjældent bedre af nogen danske musikere. En plade, der på en og samme tid smitter med sin legesyge spilleglæde og imponerer med sit overrumplende musikalske overskud." ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶
"...the balancing act between academic nerdery and plain musical exitement is rarely performed better by any Danish musicians. A record which is at the same time infectious with it's playfulness and joy of playing and impressive with its overwhelming musical exuberance."
"A highly inventive and playful journey into the mysterious sonic possibilities of the electric guitar. (...) These multi-layered compositions navigate playfully and methodically into their cathartic, noisy and chaotic codas."
"...moderne pigtrådsmusik i et konstant ekspanderende mulighedsfelt fra Anders Lauge Meldgaard og en magisk cirkel af guitarister (...) Man har indtryk af en kollektiv indsats, hvor det færdige lydbillede i høj grad præges af forskellige personligheder og deres lige så forskellige tilgange til instrumentet. Samtidig fornemmer man dog også klart en signaturlyd fra Meldgaard i de hoppende og ekstatiske udladninger, der vil glæde fans af hans ”Frisk Frugt”-projekt. Guitaren sættes her både fri fra rockens klichéer og blaserte avantgardestrategier. Alene tilbage står en frydefuld omgang med hele el-guitarens mulighedsfelt. Sådan skærer man en god guitarplade."
"...modern guitar-based music in a constantly expanding field of possibilities from Anders Lauge Meldgaard and a magic circle of guitarists (...) One has the impression of a collective effort where the end sound is greatly influenced by the different personalities of the musicians and their equally different approaches to the instrument. Simultaneously one clearly senses the signature sound of Meldgaard in the bouncing and ecstatic eruptions, sure to delight fans of his "Frisk Frugt" project. Here the guitar is released from both clichés of rock and from blasé avant-garde strategies. What remains is a joyful toying with the field of possibilities of the electric guitar. This is how you cut a good guitar record.
"Det långa spåret ”På Cykel mod solen som et ekkolod II” som utlöper i den annonserade extasen är helt fantastisk. Sedan är materialet varierande. Styckena är välspelade och supertighta, de sprider lika mycket humor som de skänker allvar."
"The long track "På cykel mod solen som et ekkolod II" finishes in ecstasy and is simply stunning. (...) The pieces are well played and super tight. They spread as much humor as they do earnestness."
"This disc is fabulous, brutal in part, consistently focused and engaging! This set is not just over-the-top but a more balanced excursion… I was at the edge of my seat for the entire length of this totally cosmic duo session!"
Yoshihide is still one of a kind, his guitar yowling, screaming, ranting, cutting like a turntable or just playing walls of Dead C-style noise while Nilssen-Love — one of jazz's most heavy-metal drummers — goes Whiplash.
"This is one ear-cleansing ride. One to play loud and one to play on repeat for a couple of time. Excellent recording of an excellent concert."
"…features both musicians in top form, demonstrating their versatile and diverse improvisational strategies and imaginative ideas about sound, pulse and space… Brilliant."
"…excellent, nicely shaped, improvised set… It has the kind of focus and shape that good gigs have and studio recordings don’t."
"...a rather rare chance to hear Yoshihide in a more spontaneous setting. He has released solo guitar records in addition to his ensemble work but interacting in a duo setting with a drummer as powerful and demonstrative as Paal Nilssen-Love affords Yoshihide the chance to move freely while being pushed. They've recorded together before — in trio with Norwegian noise master Lasse Marhaug and with Yoshihide sitting in with Nilssen-Love's power trio The Thing — but here they are heard in fast-paced dialogue. What stands out most is how responsive each of them is, what quick thinkers they are."
"...eine saugute Liveplatte..."
