There's a post-it on this record that simply has my name on it, since I'm the office's known Rune Grammofon expert. This is of course album number three from those crunchy minimal jazz-proggers Hedvig Mollestad Trio. Those of you who are familiar with the previous two will know that this lot's stock in trade is twisty-turny instrumentals full of twiddly jazzy guitar flourishes and heavy '70s rock riffing, brewed together for an ostentatious but purposefully economical aesthetic with influences encompassing Hendrix and Motorpsycho and Melvins and Sabbath but also Santana and Mahavishnu Orchestra, with no fear of drifting off into spacey melodic excursions.   'Enfant Terrible' seems like a freer and looser album than the previous two, which I found a little stiff in places. This time it's clear that plenty of stage time before recording, and a few years playing together, has turned them into an almost telepathically intuitive threesome. Whether they're laying out complex prog riffs or meandering free-jazz rock fusionisms they really sound like they're relaxing and having fun more on this record than ever before. Closer 'Pity the Children' particularly nails it, mixing Slint-ish moodiness with a Blonde Redhead crunch as it alternates between minimal Santana soloing and itchy Shellac riffing. Tasty.
