Expand Your Musical Palette With New Releases From Jo Berger Myhre and JU

Norwegian bassist/composer Jo Berger Myhre has started his solo trek with his debut album "Unheimlich Manoeuvre," which was released on September 24th, through RareNoise Records. His new nine song release experiments with elements of classical music, along with ambient soundscapes in order to make this album a unique listening experience. Myhre begins with the gentle bass sounds of "Everything Effacing" and the more ambient touch of "Smallest Things, Part 1," which allows his music to show dimension and depth, as you concentrate on everything that is going on with the instrumentation. He works on a solid musical path during "Aviary," which feels like it has a purpose and emotion given to the melody. The music slowly rises with a peaceful picking of an acoustic guitar on "Gate Opens," before finishing off the album with the solo bass work of "Perils" and the stark, atmospheric support of "Inner Relations."

Budapest music trio, JU also recently released their third studio album simply titled "III," through RareNoise Records, back in September 24th. Their confidence seems to grow with each new release, as this latest ten song release features a mix of originals and instrumentals based on traditional Middle Eastern folk music. The album begins with the chants of "Palaran" and the rock-based jam of "Cerberus." The trio quietly feel their way around "Oak," while "Ash," feels like an experimental piece that the band discovered while tuning their instruments during a warm-up. JU once again return to the raw, hard rock approach of "Thorn" and "Shashka," before closing with the eight-minute, progressive rock approach of "Minerva" and the quieter prayer of "Sumirana Karo Sada Dina Ratee."
