Bjørn Torske Feil Knapp
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Smalltown Supersound
Bergen-based producer Bjørn Torske may not get out of the house but he certainly makes house music. He commands a sense of amplitude and economy that favors dub as much as astro-disco, similar to Idjut Boys, Stacey Pullen, and The Pop Group but minus the paranoia. Though starting out a bit moony, this album soon reveals an insistent coagulation of pliant tones. Some tracks, meanwhile, reach as much for Studio One as Sirius A; instead of the seraphic swatches of Torske's nouveau kosmische contemporaries, this one hints at much more corporal preoccupations. In many supple tracks the percussive anchors are live but unhurried, the total effect being poignant prog.
