Every reason to be exited.

We are so grateful. I know many people say they don’t care about the press, but I’d happily admit, I care. These are some of my favorite quotes.

“Truly original and far beyond limits of what is jazz, rock punk, rockabilly and experimental”(…) This is an album, you need to hear over and over again too really fathom, how far ahead Lundin and Væring are” Peter Rahbek  in Jazzspecial (music magazine) (DK) (not available via internet)

“In her own category amongst her Scandinavian colleagues in the borderland between pop and jazz”(…) “Rather than the young gran child of Billie Holiday she is more likely to be the dreamy headstrong daughter of Tom Waits” (…) “Sometimes Offpiste Gurus sound like a smoky blues club, but then you find yourself amidst the atmosphere of a Quentin-Terantino-filmshoot”….”Fascinatingly unorthodox yet catchy” Andreas Schneider in JazzThetik (musicmagazine) (DE) read

“Yet another brave and uncompromising artistic riot against rigid genres”(…) “The brass, the voice, the rhythm – dusty, trashy, sophisticated and dynamic – the way it is comes together is unorthodox, but it works in a very convincing way.
