Ioseb – “agartha”

November 5, 2013 at 3:10 pm


Ioseb leaves us alone in a small hut out on the northern highlands, where we can experience the windswept empty plains, while the winter i biting our cheeks. That’s where we start on Iosebs second postrock-sounding album “agartha” (I wrote about their first album here). As a whole it’s more dynamic than that where we get to hear everything from a desoletely minimalastic piano version of “Ack Värmeland du sköna” up to grand melodic crescendos. Here are two tracks:

Ioseb – “The Ghost of 33”

March 31, 2010 at 9:00 am


The story about the members of Ioseb‘s road trip, how they stopped at an old church, stumbled upon a pile of thrown goods and an old trunk, feels rather appealing. Seems like they was caught in the moment, and in a way started all over right there and then. Ioseb was formed and from the experience emerged something that would later on become the album “The Ghost of 33”.

Most of us probably need to stop moving on sometimes, and try to feel who we are, where we are and what we want. Maybe Ioseb’s own post-rock-version, “The Ghost of 33” can help. It’s a journey, mostly instrumental, consisting of 8 tracks of quite varying length. It can be powerful, sometimes fragile, beautifully melodic and emotional. The melancholy from cold northern winds is there, but in the end the warmth and the strength is what feels most strongly.

You can read and listen more on Ioseb’s site and you can also find them on Myspace.
