"MORE is more!" :lol:February 17, 2021 at 17:44 #37975Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
From the cover I presume it's going to be less heady stuff – more in the psychedelic freak folk direction, with mushy sound and mushroom head keyboard swirls all over the place and spidery guitar solos with lots of ant- or beetle-like notes creeping underneath
Heads off to Motorpsycho! Btw: More Is More! With MP anyway!February 18, 2021 at 06:16 #37976fiatluxParticipant
Early Genesis?February 18, 2021 at 12:54 #37977
Second that. More is more as proven since 1989. It seems theyâ€™re just constantly at it. Whatâ€˜s the longest break from playing/working they ever took? A month maybe? Theyâ€˜d have to have to release an album every three months to ever have a weak obsolete album. Considering the re-released box sets, that amount of temporarily shelved stuff in there speaks volumes. Canâ€˜t compare them to other bands with â€žordinaryâ€œ schedules, partially due to contractual obligations as well, though, I guess.February 18, 2021 at 13:05 #37978
Speaking of shelving: Maybe songs developed through the Gullvag trilogy which didnâ€˜t fit in ended up on this one. Like what gave us Barracuda in the height of their pop years…

Maybe Bent's got the chance to demonstrate his liking of Roy Harper on this one – after the title reference on TAIO (TSOR). Just wishful thinking…February 18, 2021 at 19:17 #37980Punj LizardParticipant
I just read an interview with Bent from November in which he said that the new music he'd recently listened to included Idles, Black Midi, Astrosaur, Smerz, Ultraflex and Valkyrien Allstars. Maybe some of that will have had an influence.February 20, 2021 at 08:09 #37981The Other AndersParticipant
The new albums are piling up! The Tower took me a couple of years to fully digest. The Crucible is probably peaking in these ears right about now, though the title track is still growing, and I just recently was able to pop the lid on TAIO. Haha, what a luxury "problem". I start to wonder what I can do to pay them back just a fraction of what they give me. One is for sure: This life would not have been the same without Motorpsycho. I feel so blessed.February 22, 2021 at 08:46 #37982kjellepelleParticipant
From todays Klassekampens Musikkekstra regarding the cover (In Norwegian):Quote:Motorpsycho
Â«Kingdom of OblivionÂ»
Forrige uke ble det altsÃ¥ annonsert nytt album fra institusjonen Motorpsycho. Ikke fryktelig mange detaljer om musikken pÃ¥ albumeter offentlig, enn sÃ¥ lenge. ForelÃ¸pig foreligger slippdatoen 16. april. Og litt mer utfyllende info om omslaget. For der de siste tre studioalbum har vÃ¦rt prydet av malerier av HÃ¥kon GullvÃ¥g, er dennegang den umiddelbart umiskjennelige blyantstreken til Sverre Malling ifront. Vi fikk en rask kommentar fra Malling:
â€“ Jeg fikk en forespÃ¸rsel fra Motorpsycho om Ã¥ tegne platecover til albumet.Der tittelkuttet, Â«Kingdom of OblivionÂ», handler om opiat-epidemien.Etter Ã¥ ha satt meg inn i de billedlige assosiasjonene, foreslo jeg en fersk tegning som jeg mente kunne passe. Og da vokalist Bent og HÃ¥vard Gjelseth(grafisk designer, ogsÃ¥ kjent bl.a. for omfattende arbeid med Crispin GloverRecords, journ.anm.) sÃ¥ denne tegningen, fant de bÃ¥de en relasjon til, og en forlengelse av tittelen. Ved Ã¥ tegne bÃ¥de logo og platetittel for hÃ¥nd, ble ogsÃ¥ resultatet en komposisjon mer direkte relatert til plata.

Last week, a new album was announced from the institution Motorpsycho. Not terribly many details about the music on albums publicly, than so far. The release date is currently 16 April. And a little more complementary info about the cover. Because where the last three studio albums have been adorned with paintings by HÃ¥kon GullvÃ¥g, this time the immediately unmistakable pencil line by Sverre Malling is in front. We got a quick comment from Malling:
– I received a request from Motorpsycho to draw a record cover for the album. The title cut, "Kingdom of Oblivion", is about the opiate epidemic. After getting acquainted with the pictorial associations, I suggested a recent drawing that I thought could fit . And when vocalist Bent and HÃ¥vard Gjelseth (graphic designer, also known for extensive work with Crispin GloverRecords, journ.anm.) Saw this drawing, they found both a relation to, and an extension of the title. By drawing both the logo and the record title by hand, the result was also a composition more directly related to the record.
@ Kjellepelle – thanksFebruary 24, 2021 at 23:03 #37984cloudhawkerParticipant
@Punj Lizard If Idles, Black Midi, Astrosaur, Smerz, Ultraflex and Valkyrien Allstars is what Bent listened to I really have no idea what the album is going to sound like….February 26, 2021 at 11:30 #37985Kid AParticipant
@cloudhawker Not like an Idles Album, thatâ€™s for sure :wink:February 26, 2021 at 21:38 #37986cloudhawkerParticipant
@Kid A Haha no God forbid. Not like any single one of those bands I presume.March 3, 2021 at 19:43 #37987TomcatParticipant
More details appearing online:
(…) "their most riff- and metal-heavy album to date since "heavy metal Fruit". // It's as if The Incredible String Band, Fleetwood Mac and Bert Jansch had enlisted the help of Tony Iommi for a joint session."March 4, 2021 at 13:47 #37988
