EIVIND AARSET & JAN BANG in Audiophile man:

Title: Snow Catches on her Eyelashes 

Label: Jazzland 

Now, you’d think that  vinyl LP emanating from a record label called Jazzland would feature lots of upright bass, the odd sax solo and careful cymbal taps but not here ol’son. Think avant-garde electronica. Of a Norwegian stripe. 

What you have is a series of synth-based looped drones, sub-bass beats and more synth content that tells the story. Featuring a mosaic of often meditative sounds and sampled with trumpet interspersed as small fragments (at least, I’m pretty sure that’s what I heard, it’s difficult to be absolutely sure), this down tempo vinyl album provides intriguing rhythms and contemplative tones plus melancholic piano for anyone interested in electronica.
