Molvaer, Nils Petter: Hamada (Thirsty Ear)
Label: Thirsty Ear    
Released in: USA    


"It is Nils Petter Molvaer's most angry and darkest album up to date with climaxes in the songs "Friction" and "Cruel Altitude" where he and his fellow musicians, guitarist Eivind Aarset and drummer Audun Kleive, leave the paths of ambient, electronica and improvisation and get the axe out to poach in the fields of indie and 70ies-prog-rock, before they cool it down to end the album on a more conciliatory note.

The word "Hamada" is taken from the Arabian language and means dead, inanimately, congealed, lapsed. It is used as the geological term for a stone or rock desert with no or only little sand. Instead it is filled with edgy stones or rocks as a result of physical erosion."-Thirsty Ear
