Kristoffer Lo-Front Row Gallows View_Ear Worms

(side note this video might not work in certain countries)

Kristoffer Lo is an avant-garde jazz musician out of Norway who has achieved greatness on his new album The Black Meat.  Recorded in a lighthouse with the aid of pedals and amplification, The Black Meat reflects the dark nature of its cover with it’s menacing droning pieces that grow and swell.  The first song on the album, Front Row Gallows View, spurs from a singular sustained Tuba note that seems to be pitched up.  Over the 10 minutes, Lo keeps the listener mesmerized with his massive low pitched entities that further the impact of the never-ending sustains.  The rest of the album continues the aesthetic of the first piece resulting in a moving overall piece.
