Description

On 'Field Day Rituals' the doom piano trio Splashgirl exceeds the high expectations that have been building up since the release of the group's debut album 'Pressure' in 2011, which was described as "an instant classic" by Uncut Magazine and "a triumphant artistic exercise" by Jazzwise. With their fourth album the influences of post-rock, classical music and, not least, jazz are even more apparent this time around.

The album is detail-rich, dramatic, full of atmosphere and massive, despite the sometimes viscous and reserved quality of the music. It was recorded in the course of two intense weeks at Avast Studio in Seattle, USA, together with engineer and producer Randall Dunn (Akron/Family, Black Mountain, Sun City Girls, Boris, Kinski, Sunn O))) and Earth). Violist Eyvind Kang (Beck, John Zorn, Marc Ribot) plays on three tracks, and Timothy Mason's subtle modular synths are a welcome surprise in several places on the album.

Personnel: Andreas Stensland Løwe (piano and keyboards), Jo Berger Myhre (double bass), Andreas Lønmo Knudsrød (drums and percussion), Eyvind Kang (viola), Timothy Mason (modular synth)
