Susanna And The Magical Orchestra…….
is in fact a duo with keyboardplayer Morten Qvenild and singer Susanna Karolina Wallumrød. (Morten is a former member of Jaga Jazzist and Shining, he quitted to concentrate on this duo and his own trio called In The Country.
Their debut-album was released in Norway in February 2004, and some time later in Europe and in Japan, and received very good critics around the world. List of lights and buoys contains highly personal interpretations of Dolly Parton´s Jolene and Leonard Bernstein´s Who Am I as well as nine originals that show a suprising degree of maturity, especially considering the writers young age and the fact that they operate in a landscape that requires a good deal of songwriting skills to hold your attention. Susanna And The Magical Orchestra combines the availability of the traditional popmusic, the strictness of the electronica and the improvisation in the jazzmusic.
Melody Mountain is out in the stores now!
Singer Susanna Wallumrød has a unique way of making a song her own, and to fill the lyrics and melodies with the emotional content they require. This was made very clear with her stunning interpretation of Dolly Parton´s classic Jolene, recorded for the duo´s debut album List Of Lights and Buoys (2004). A song covered by many artists, but seldom with such heartfelt sincerity. With Melody Mountain they have chosen to do an album of only interpretations, some quite radical, of mostly well-known songs, all personal and moving performances with Morten Qvenild´s naked and to the bone playing an important part in the overall soundscape. Full track list includes Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen), It´s A Long Way To The Top (AC/DC), These Days (Matt Burt) “Condition Of The Heart” (Prince), “Love Will Tear Us Apart” (Joy Division), “Crazy, Crazy Nights” (Kiss), “Don´t Think Twice, It´s All Right” (Bob Dylan), “It´s Raining Today” (Scott Walker), “Enjoy The Silence” (Depeche Mode) and “Fotheringay” (Fairport Convention).

Their astonishing, heartbreaking deconstruction of “Love Will Tear Us Apart” could keep you awake for days

For one thing, its fucking gorgeous.
It’s an album of cover songs, and it’s not the kind that coyly avoids well-known songs. On the contrary, “Melody Mountain” begins with Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which has been sung by Jeff Buckley and many others. Ms. Wallumrod starts out quietly but not at all timidly, and her partner, Morten Qvenild, does almost nothing: his occasional chords could almost be reverberations of his partner’s voice.

My Review~ Well I tried Absente over the New Years, and well I’m not the biggest connoisseur of liquors, I can tell you this. It was pretty good stuff. It had this very unique color and had this strange lingering aftertaste that was quite pleasant. It was a fairly refined drink with a smooth draw, tastes like candy when mixed with just sugar water
Like black licorice, and then it had this weired sensation like you were drinking the devils brew. You could actually feel it on your tongue. It was probably just psychological, and based on me knowing it’s long and colorful history, so I don’t doubt it.
Priced at around $40 for a 1/5 it isn’t the cheapest stuff on the shelf, nor the most expensive. “But it is good stuff” ~Peilo
I had worked mass amounts of hours over the holidays, and went from being on days to working midnights. I worked 84 hours X-mas week, which I had never worked that many hours in a single week before (it sucked) I couldn’t get back to a normal schedule for the life of me. I was already out of my element when I started drinking the stuff for sure but still. :-)
I would love to tell you it produced real hallucinations, but it didn’t. It did however exponentially enhance the music I zoned out to before bed ~ My Last Mix of 07′. Speaking of mix, I mixed my absinthe with Redbull and sugar water. ~ But anyways back to the real story, not my review—>
In praise of the opaque green liqueur beloved by his creative contemporaries, Oscar Wilde once posed the rhetorical question, “What difference is there between a glass of absinthe and a sunset?”
The prosaic answer, at least for Americans, has long been one of legality: sunsets can be freely enjoyed, but absinthe was forbidden because it contained thujone, a potentially toxic compound.
Intrepid drinkers have worked around the ban by ordering imported bottles off the Internet or smuggling them back from Eastern Europe. Now they have a third, less dodgy option: Lucid, which is being marketed as the first legal, genuine American absinthe in nearly a century.
Absinthe, What is Absinthe? About its Science, Chemistry and Structure
Prohibition is finally over!
Introducing lucid, Absinthe Supérieure. lucid represents a breakthrough product for the U.S. market, as it is the first true, Grande Wormwood-based Absinthe of its type since before prohibition. Unlike imitators in the U.S. and many of the so-called “Absinthe” products that litter the international markets, lucid is crafted directly from select whole herbs, including Grande Wormwood, and never from cheaper assemblages, macerations, extracts or oils.
