Mummu: Mitt Ferieparadis mummu is a new Norwegian musical collective comprised from the female duo of low-frequency noise-musicians SKRAP and the male trio of punk improvisers Ich Bin N!ntendo. This outfit began to explore heavy amplified drone music and soon settled on chaotic and noisy improvisations, referencing diverse influences, beginning with Indian vocal master Pandit Pran Nath, the pioneer minimalist experiences of La Monte Young that drew inspiration from Pran Nath and the walls of repetitive, distorted sounds à la post-punk Swans.

The debut release of this collective is a limited edition 7" single, Mitt Ferieparadis (My Holiday Paradise}. It is a concise investigation of noisy forms of music—distorted sonic outbursts, powerful rock riffs, edgy lo-fi soundscapes and extreme metal-blasting punchlines.

The first piece, "Feda Bru," introduces the otherworldly minimalist rustles and hisses identified with the low-fi aesthetics of SKRAP reinforced with the energetic sonic envelope of Ich Bin N!ntendo. The second one, "Logatunellen," fuses the two sonic universes into an intense orgy of spiky metallic sounds, pounding rhythms and a disturbing drone that gains momentum in a kind of ritual of noise till the cathartic volcanic eruption. The bonus track, available only in the digital version, is an immediate and speedy assault of punk improvisation that gallops onward with uncompromising energy.

This single clocks at about 15 minutes but all of them present bliss.


Track Listing: Feda Bru; Logatunellen, TBA.

Personnel: Christian Skår Winther: electric guitar; Magnus Skavhaug Nergaard: electric bass; Anja Lauvdal: Korg MS10; Heida Karine Johannesdottir Mobeck: tuba; Joakim Heibø Johansen: drums.

Year Released: 2013 | Record Label: Va Fongool
