Building Instrument - Mangelen Min (CD Hubro)

Third album by a Norwegian trio whose merging of breezy, jazz-inflected leftfield pop with the kinda electronics once the domain of certain Warp artists tends to assume the guise of background flotsam only too quickly. Yes, thereís a modicum of charm to the way some of the whispery melodies softly glide into each other, but everything ultimately needs a little mooring. Building Instrument sound like they aspire to their music being piped into a hotelís dining room as guests nurse hangovers and contemplate either a continental or Full English in order to deal with them.  RJ
