SIVERT HØYEM - Endless Love

Kategorie: CD-Reviews | Genre: Alternative/Indie | Heft: Jahrgang 2014, eclipsed Nr. 161 / 6-2014 | VÖ-Jahr: 2014 | Wertung: 7/10 | Label: Hektor Grammofon | Autor: WK

The former Madrugada singer returns impressively to his roots. After he had tried on his last two albums to correspond to American sound ideas, he now indulges again in the deep dark blue borreale blues and subarctic gospel, which he already cultivated with Madrugada. Already the title giving opener indicates the direction. This is about the deep depressions of which the Norwegians are able to report as thrillingly as no other people. Not all tracks are as strong as the first two, but the album again has the drive that Høyem lacked so much lately. The songs are mostly sparsely orchestrated, so that Høyem's unbelievable voice comes into its own. And what his plays, above all super guitarist Cato Salsa, have to offer here is directly focused on the emotional targets of the listener. All this awakens again longings for a reunion of the unique Madrugada, because only in this constellation would Høyem's new songs come to bear even better.
