Biography

«A Norwegian improv trio armed with a banjo, a double bass, a pedal steel, a bizarre tabla machine, shruti boxes and a fondness for freeing folk from its folk songs—from Santa Fe to Bombay.» Boston Weekly

Huntsville’s unexpected sounds and textures, allied with echoes of traditional genres in a radical new conceptual language have been described as abstract drone Americana and yoga country.

Their sound contains references to Supersilent, Bohren und der Club of Gore, Beirut, Tape, Tim Hecker, In The Country and John Cage. Debut release “For The Middle Class” was released in 2006 on Norwegian label Rune Grammofon. Their second album “Eco, Arches & Eras” will be released in late September 2008. “Eco, Arches & Eras” is a double disc with guest appearances by vocalist Sidsel Endresen, guitarist Nels Cline and percussionist Glenn Kotche.
