Fysisk Format return with the second in a series of split 12"s (the first featured Haust and Next Life), pairing up Norwegian artists Svarte Greiner with Le Corbeau. You know this is gonna be a bleak one cause the sleeves all black and fractured looking an features an anti-Steve Jobs sticker with the phrase 'No Stream, No CD, No MP3, No Fun' on the front. Those Fysisk lot are a light-hearted bunch ain't they. Yer man Svarte kicks things off with three haunting guitar workouts that lean toward the claustrophobic and uneasy side of ambient composition. These three ghostly outings form a brief narrative based around the song titles 'Drunk', 'Road' and 'Tree'. Drink driving ambient doom anyone? This side is as meditative as it is bleak. Flip it and you get Le Corbeau, a Langhus-based group who create a very different sound. These tracks are lighter in tone, sprinkled with mysterious melodies and surreal takes on familiar sounding themes; including an very tasteful cover of Roy Orbison's 'She's A Mystery To Me'. It brings to mind a more sedate take on Master Musicians of Bukkake's recent 7" of obscure movie and TV themes in the way the group take catchy reverb drenched riffs and let them play out uninterrupted with plenty of breathing space. This side is excellent, full of lush warm guitar tones and peaceful compositions. These two very different artists make surprisingly good bedfellows.
