    Some new(?) Infos on Rune:

    Hold tight, for this is the zenith of the band´s motorpsychodelic tendencies, with emphasis on the blissful and melodic, but still an intense rollercoaster ride all of its own. Here Be Monsters started life as a commission for the centennial jubilee of the Norwegian Technical Museum in November, 2014. The music was written for the expanded version of Motorpsycho that features everyone's favourite keyboardist StÃ¥le Storløkken (Elephant9, Supersilent, Terje Rypdal, etc.). Performed just once, this music clearly had more life in it, and while StÃ¥le’s commitments meant he had to pass on making an album out of it, Bent, Snah and Kenneth have turned it into a full-blown Motorpsycho project. There are five of their own compositions, from the tantalising piano intro (Sleepwalking – and its equally brief reprise Sleepwalking Again) to the expansive and stunningly scenic 17-minute adventure – another rollercoaster! – of the closing Big Black Dog, via the serene beauty of Lacuna/Sunrise and Running With Scissors, and the pulsing, pounding I.M.S. Motorpsycho also felt it was the perfect occasion to record one of their favourite psych nuggets of old; their take on HP Lovecraft’s version of Terry Callier’s Spin, Spin, Spin adds a new, slightly sinister vibe to the old folk tune, which offsets and complements the grandiose cinematic sweep of their own songs. Co-produced, engineered and mixed by long-time co-conspirator and fellow sonic explorer Thomas Henriksen, who also plays keyboards on the album, Here Be Monsters is Motorpsycho’s most hi-fi, headphone-friendly music yet, taking you closer to the songs’ themes.

    Released 12.02.16


      Will this be the Teknisk Museum-album? If so, hipp hipp hurra! And if not, still hipp hipp hurra.

        Yes, great news!! I waited long for that announcement :-)




          I think it's Oslo live thingey recorded properly in studio, which is cool :D


          let's hope so, the night at teknisk museum was magic, there were rumors about ståle being too busy to join the guys in studio this time, wondering how that was solved :-)


          Apparently they used Invisible Keyboard Player


            I think the "Invisble keyboard player" refers to ståle who was too busy to join MP in the studio.

            So probably Teknisk Museum-album


              Ståle told me the problem wasn't the studio time. He backed out because he is too busy with his own projects to take part in the tour next year. And I think it was pretty official from Bent that the new album would be based on the stuff from Teknisk museum (but who knows what happens in the studio).


                Om ikke det er StÃ¥le hÃ¥per jeg det kommer en ny fyr pÃ¥ synth… (Det som blei spilt i Oslo var veldig fokusert pÃ¥ StÃ¥le og Synth.. SÃ¥ veldig rart han ikke er med)… Men hvem kan det være?…Det bør være en som bor i Trondheim…Ikke mange i Norge som er i klasse med StÃ¥le..Jeg hÃ¥per jo pÃ¥ Deathprod…… Kan nesten bare tenke meg Øystein Moen eller David Wallumrød som er i samme klasse.. . Blir spennnanes. Jeg hÃ¥per og tror det er musikken som blei spilt pÃ¥ Teknisk museum. Men litt utvida med noen nye mer vokal baserte lÃ¥ter. SÃ¥nn jeg kjenner Bent og MP blir det ikke det samme som blei spilt i Oslo…Det blir utvida og enda bedre.. Blei litt mye prog live … Men den ene lÃ¥ta dem spilte dær er noe av det mørkeste og brÃ¥kete jeg har hørt av motorpsycho noen gang …Jeg syntes det var enormt bra..


                Well, Øyvind Brandtsegg HAS been working on computer-controlled pianos and organs …


                Here be Monsters/Demon Box


                An adventure involving magic, trolls, and other creatures/Demons

                Anybody else intrigued by these parallels? Or is it just…


                    YES !!! This is very simple but it makes me waiting for the Record… :STG:
