Nordic Roots, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Vol. 3 of the Nordic Roots series, highlighting releases from the Northside label, remains, as they say, "cheaper than food," and though you might not be able to make a sandwich out of it, it's certainly tasty. There's a good pick of tracks from the label's releases; together, these tracks give an idea of both the similarities and diversities of Nordic music. It might seem like a jump from the neo-electronics of Gjallarhorn's "Suvetar, Goddess of Spring" to Harv's acoustic "The Lever," but there's a feeling that draws them close together.

It might seem like a jump from the neo-electronics of Gjallarhorn's "Suvetar, Goddess of Spring" to Harv's acoustic "The Lever," but there's a feeling that draws them close together. Apart from the catalog tracks making an excellent introduction to the genre, the pleasant surprise comes from the bonus -- four live cuts from the label's Nordic Roots Festival, held each April in Minneapolis. The wonderful Väsen (with Harv), Swap, Ranarim, and Hedningarna get to strut their stuff in live performance, and show that none of them are instrumental slouches. Much of the music here is instrumental, but it's none the worse for that, and throws the singers into high relief, such as Värttinä and their incredible high harmonies, or the golden throat of Garmarna's Emma Härdelin. The whole package shows what a niche Northside has created, and that Nordic music continues to hold a real gold mine of riches.

    More intriguing Scandinavian music from NorthSide.

    Combining traditional tunes and instruments from Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Sami people with modern electronics and sensibilities, this is Nordic neo-folk music promoted with grace, zeal and consummate professionalism. Overall, “Nordic Roots 3” is the mellowest of the three “Nordic Roots” samplers, with more gentle, reflective numbers than the others releases, but still a few lively ones as well. Many of the musicians featured on “Nordic Roots” 1 and 2 return, as well as some new faces, such as Gjallarhorn, Maria Kalaniemi and Aldargaz, Harv, Ranarim and the Nyckelharpa Orchestra. If you like the “Nordic Roots” series, check out the many releases of NorthSide’s individual artists, as well as World Music Network’s survey album, “Rough Guide to the Music of Scandinavia”.
