anneli drecker - revelation for personal use (cd)


ARTIST // anneli drecker
LABEL // rune grammofon (no)
CAT // rcd2191cd


Anneli Drecker's Revelation For Personal Use is very much a follow-up to the huge artistic success of Rocks & Straws (RCD 2169CD/RLP 3169LP, 2015), an ode to her native town and region, and again consists of songs based on lyrics by Norwegian cult poet Arvid Hanssen and translated to English by artist and writer Roy-Frode Lvland. Anneli has written the album's eight lovely songs, plays piano and keyboards, and has produced the album. It largely moves in the same musical landscape as the previous album, with the Arctic Philharmonic present on six tracks, and string arranger Sindre Hotvedt, guitarist Eivind Aarset, and drummer Rune Arnesen on board again. If anything, a couple of the tracks show a slightly sharper rock edge than its predecessor.
