Over the last several years, Erik Skodvin’s Miasmah imprint has released some fantastic albums by Marcus Fjellströn, FNS, Simon Scott, Svarte Greiner, and (TMT favorite) Kreng. I’d like to add Juv’s new self-titled album to the list. The music was actually recorded between 1996 and 1998, but the Norwegian duo of Are Mokkelbost and Marius von der Fehr just couldn’t get along well enough to finish the album. Thirteen years later, they put their differences aside and finally completed the album, and it’s being released tomorrow.
The video above is for “Forvarsel,” with images from a silent film, Forsvinningens Gang, by Iselin Lønn. If you’re a fan of minimalism, drone, field recordings, and microtonal music, there’s nothing stopping you from listening to the full album except you. Stream the full album below (be sure to listen to “Sut”!) and purchase the album here:
