These are videos that I like: Mats Eilertsen “Tundra”


One of my favorite albums of 2019 was Reveries & Revelations by Mats Eilertsen.  It’s got plenty of tranquility for when I need something soothing late at night or first thing in the morning, but it’s got just the right amount of edge and liveliness to sit down with the album smack dab in the middle of the day.  And it’s on one my favorite labels, Hubro Music, which specializes in the this kind of music, along with the kind of music that is so strange and yet so melodic and eludes any attempt to classify it with our better known genre tags.

This video is from the album track “Tundra,” put together courtesy of Jenny Berger Myhre.

You can expect to be reading more about this album as we ramp up for the Best of 2019 reveal (which, by the way, starts tomorrow night with the introduction!)

Listen to more of the music on the artist’s Soundcloud page.

If you don’t want to wait for my Best of 2019 list and just want to purchase the album right this instant (and you should), it’s available at:  Bandcamp | Amazon
