Kaada
Music for Moviebikers
Ipecac

By Matt Cibula

Published March 20, 2007

Remember the whole Scandinavian post-rock movement? It seems like only yesterday that the haunting whimsy of Sigur Ros was going to be the next huge thing. That ship has sailed, but this exquisite disc from Norwegian Jon Erik Kaada might signal a renaissance of lovely, frosty instrumental music. Kaada is well known as a film composer in his own land, and rightly so, as it is easy to compose movie scenes in one’s mind for every track here. The gentle folkish melody of “No Man’s Land” is clearly meant to back a love scene, while the harsher industrial-polka textures of “The Small Stuff” are clearly from some kind of adorable futuristic dystopia. There’s a lot of Ennio Morricone here, and a lot of Brian Eno, and a lot of neo-Tom Waits, but what it is mostly is a whole lot of Kaada, which means a whole lot of genius.
