Jacob Holm-Lupo // Wobbler – From Silence To Somewhere – NABOK044

Sale price250,00 kr


Wobbler, with roots in Hønefoss, has since its debut in 2005 quietly risen as one of Norway's biggest rock exports. The band is the definitive leading star within new, Norwegian prog rock, and Norwegian prog rock has generally gained a kind of star status internationally. With the 2017 album From Silence to Somewhere came the real international breakthrough, and it was also on this record that the current line-up emphatically got everything right. An album with an almost explosive creativity, bursting with joy in playing and a kind of folk virtuosity that captivates far beyond prog rock's traditional audience. Audun Vinger concluded his review of the record in Dagens Næringsliv with the following admission: "when the spinet solo is over and the final theme is hammered into the closing "Foxlight", you should be glad you are not being filmed during playback, lightly conducting and enthusiastic."

Jacob Holm-Lupo, who thinks Natt is Norway's best album, is a musician, sound engineer and journalist/author. He has steered the ship in the prog rock band White Willow since the mid-nineties and also runs the art-pop project The Opium Cartel. He has written books about Blue Öyster Cult and Toto for the British publisher Sonicbond and has been a regular at various Classic Album Sundays. As a journalist, he has a background both as co-editor of the prog magazines Tarkus and Hybris, as a music reviewer in Det Nye and the British magazine Prog Magazine, and as a desk journalist in various colorful magazines. He lives on Sandøya in Telemark where he runs his Dude Ranch Studio.
