Huntsville is: Ivar Grydeland – guitars, banjo, pedal steel guitar and various instruments Tonny Kluften – electric bass, double bass, bass pedals and various instruments Ingar Zach – percussion, tabla machine, sarangi box, sruti box, drone commander and various instruments The Sound Wizard – sound «…they alternate between brief Americana-esque instrumentals and lenghtier excursions into fast, fluid motion, attaining trance-velocity like some rare amalgam of Miles Davies, Steve Reich and early Tortoise.» Rock-A-Rolla (UK) Norway’s HUNTSVILLE delves further into an adventurous crossbreed of rock, drones, country, jazz and electro-acoustic improvisation. After their 2006 debut “for the middle class” (Rune Grammofon) Boston Weekly wrote: «armed with a banjo, a double bass, a pedal steel, a bizarre tabla machine, shruti boxes and a fondness for freeing folk from its folk songs — from Santa Fe to Bombay.» Huntsville’s unexpected sounds and textures, allied with echoes of traditional genres in a radical new conceptual language have been described as abstract drone Americana and yoga country. On their second album, the double release “eco, arches & eras” (Rune Grammofon, 2008), they dig even deeper into their striking and original sound world – this time with riffing electric guitars, hard-hitting drums and their secret weapon: a drone commander… Huntsville had special guests during the making of “eco, arches & eras”. Norwegian singer Sidsel Endresen joined in on one track, while guitarist Nels Cline and drummer Glenn Kotche (both of Wilco) visited Huntsville on an hour-long track captured live in 2007.
