Product Overview

Limited Edition 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl
The title of Helge Lien's official debut as a solo artist is as eccentric as the music contained on it. While listening to a Danish jazz song from the 60s, Norwegian Lien misheard the lyrics as saying "Kattenslager". In fact, they were referring to a "Plattenslager" ("Pop Record"), but the non-existing term would prove to be perfect for the album's equally subtle, mysterious and disturbing piano sounds. Fans of Lien's lyrical trio work certainly won't be disappointed. And yet this time, his performance is no longer restricted by any preconceived melodic motives. Instead, ideas flow from his fingers with complete ease and unbound by limiting concepts, resulting in a record of remarkable freedom, immediacy and unpredictability.
