22 tracks, 63:23
Mads Lindgren a.k.a Monolog shows with his debut release 'Mumbler', an extraordinary competence
in creating a symbiosis between the electronix universe and more or less traditional jazz instruments.
He has at earlier times configured in live-sets with various Danish jazz musicians, here amongst in
Vestbirk Noiz Ensemble with Niels Præstholm playing distiller, PH lampshade and table tennis ball,
and acting as sampler pope.
Mumbler counts no less than 22 tracks totalling more than 60 minutes. Even though many elements of
the music are deliciously experimental, a connected, pleasant flow is generated. There are goodies for
people looking for atmospheric background music as well as those seeking a more intense listening
experience. If you put a close ear to Mumbler, you will find a myriad of sound FX, collages and
untraditional instrument choices (cement blocks on track 1: Putout… or gas stove on track 8: Whenthen…
Classifying Mumbler is hard. Is it electronica? Is it new age jazz? If you call it jazztronica you
won't be too far off. Mumbler contains many aspects of both genres. Here's an album with both hard
edges and soft corners.
