Some of the techniques that Alog invented for their excellent ”Miniatures” album have now been refined and developed on “Amateur”, their fourth album for Rune Grammofon. It was recorded on various locations in the western and northern parts of Norway, often using instruments found or built for the sole purpose of this recording.

These sessions were subsequently worked on in the studio to bring out the unique spirit of the “Amateur”. This spirit is characterized by a curious and fresh approach to playing that is often lost in the process of becoming a virtuoso on a singular instrument.

The result is also quite unique and once again Alog have delivered an extraordinary album. Needless to say, it comes highly recommended.
