Description

A wonderful debut by Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Alexander von Mehren - sophisticated, immaculately produced Baroque pop?

'Aéropop' is the debut album by Alexander von Mehren a 29 years old musician from Bergen, Norway. He operates out of his own studio (Guestroom, Bergen) and started recording Aéropop, his debut album, back in 2006. Playing most of the instruments himself with a meticulous attention to detail, the result is a stunning collection of songs (sung in French and English) and instrumental pieces with an airy and organic feel - alternative Baroque pop influenced by the likes of Stereolab, The High Llamas and the Chicago-based post-rock scene.

The album was mastered by Steve Rooke at Abbey Road Studios in London April 2012 and features contributions from members of The High Llamas, Tortoise, Jaga Jazzist, Orwell and Modular.

von Mehren also performs regularly in the live bands of Sondre Lerche and Nathalie Nordnes and has contributed live and in studio with acts such as Bobby Hughes Combination (piano, keyboards), Kinny & Horne (piano), Chris Joss (vibraphone), Orwell (strings and brass arrangements, piano, percussion), Le Futur Pompiste (vibraphone), Milk / Taro Umebayashi (drums, percussion, vibraphone, vocals), Young Dreams (vibraphone, glockenspiel), The Sheriff (piano, keyboards, vibraphone), William Hut (piano, keyboards), Hypertext (piano, keyboards, vibraphone), O. Martin (production, mixing, piano, vibraphone) and The Alexandria Quartet (strings arrangements).
