ÖLTEN “Ambience”

(Hummus Records)

Battle Helm Rating

How do you avoid an instrumental album to become just one prolonged jam session? That is my biggest concern whenever I get sent an instrumental album. I don’t really have a good answer to that question but I have so far not come upon an instrumental album that do sound like a prolonged jam. The stuff I have had the fortune to hear has all given me a really nice trip. ÖLTEN’s nee one is no exception. I don’t know if it has anything to do with growing up with weird Swedish kiddies shows like “Vilse I Pannkakan” (Lost in the pancake) in the 70s but it feels like that experience has helped me letting my mind go when I listen to stuff like this. I can only escribe this as noise rock/alt rock/experimental rock. But I like what I hear. Anders Ekdahl
