Larsen

Of Grog Vim


IMPREC440   CD


Of Grog Vim is a cinematic take on the epic life of visionary legend Grog Vim.
This is the 15th album from Italian cult band, Larsen, who represent a meeting point between sound art and avante-rock.

After two albums deeply marked by the smoky voice of singer Little Annie, Of Grog Vim is the first fully instrumental album to be released by the band since they started 20 years ago and features special guest multi-instrumentalist Thor Harris (Swans) on trombone on two pieces.

"If you're troubled by the retrograde state of guitarbased music, Larsen warrants your attention..." All Music Guide

"Of Grog Vim" offers more than one hour of both elegant and evocative, solemn and bewitching, music. Extremely original"

"Always disarming for expressiveness and sound quality, Larsen (re)present themselves changed: shimmering as always. And even though their immovable, musical essence can still be found in these pieces, as DNA well tuned in spirit and notes, this time its evolution follows a slightly different path. Indeed there is, among these eight fully instrumental pieces, a rational aplomb that rearranges, combines and exalts the almost (chamber?) orchestra approach underlying so much music of the last decade (by generalization: minimalism/maximalism, post rock, raga oriented drones, heavy rock). Here the aim is that of a sound beyond the scenic effect and the instruments punching the listeners in the face, to which Larsen prefer a rare solidity, infused with a twisted stillness and ecstasy. Somehow common territories for the band, but more passionate and straight to the point than ever."    8 out of 10, Daniele Ferriero, Rumore #293, June 2016
