A mellower Bushman’s Revenge, perhaps. Or just that more intense without anyone feeling the need to burn down the house. The Nordic guitar/bass/drums trio are on inspired form guided by guitarist Even Helte Hermansen who teases achey blues-soaked lines out of McCoy Tyner’s ‘Contemplation’ to open this studio album recorded only in May this year.

The title means ‘Jazz From Memory’ and proves if nothing else that memory is very much a personal vision, this trio operating in edgy rock territory not a million miles away from some of Marc Ribot’s recent records.

With a cover of Albert Ayler’s ‘Angels’ and plenty of originals tucked in there’s a lot of tenderness from a band who have already released some seven albums and find new ways to tackle spiritual jazz and go that bit deeper.

Released on 16 September

Bizarre, gnomic music here from a Norwegian trio led by the singer Mari Kvien Brunvoll amid lots of percussion, synths and drums sliced and shaped around her voice.

In English the album title means ‘Who Knows How To Live’, and some of the music was written by Brunvoll for a Kurt Schwitters-inspired concert, Schwitters an inspiration too on such maverick homegrown UK talents as Andrew Plummer.

There’s a primitive kookiness and restlessness to Brunvoll’s intriguing voice and yet ultimately a naïve aspect to the musical settings, the backing to her voice while apparently complex able to act as directly as any singer’s interplay with her band who seem to recede the more the album progresses. 

Brunvoll has a voice that is as unique as Kate Bush’s or Björk’s and that is partly the fascination on an arresting album where she dominates, eccentricities and all.

UK release is 2 September
