Jørn Åleskjær (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 8:30pm - 9:00pm @ The Crossroad Club
    Jørn Åleskjær finally makes his solo debut after having been a songwriter for four studio albums with Loch Ness Mouse as well as having worked with the likes of Brooklyn based band The Ladybug Transistor and somewhat closer to home, I Was A King. A whole host of members of the extended “family” feature heavily on the record. The album features a duet with Elvira Nikolaisen and former Loch Ness Mouse member Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh) who plays drums, bass and guitar. Likewise another ex-Loch Ness Mouse man, Håvard Krogedal (I Was A King, Serena Maneesh, Mirror Lakes) plays most of the bass parts on the record. Other players include Gary Olson (The Ladybug Transistor), Fred Strand (Lionheart Brothers, I Was A King, The Loch Ness Mouse) and Rebekka Markstein (Maribel). The record is produced by Jørn’s brother Ole Johannes Åleskjær. The record’s musical reference points range from Todd Rundgren-like 70s pop-sould to Beach Boys type orchestral antics, but at the very core of Jørn Åleskjær’s music is, as characterised by the duet with Elvira “I’m so glad I spent this day with you”, muted Dennis Wilsonesque tender pop.
