Kråkeslottet [The Crow’s Castle] is a touching brew of experimental folk, captured intentionally far from digital perfection, that sometimes feels like reading some friend’s secret travel diary. These 8 delicate tracks can also be taken out of their context as a new and honest attempt from Louis Jucker to develop an art of his own, miles away from any commercial equation, just for the sake of sharing his own experiments through beautiful music.
written and performed by Louis Jucker on acoustic instruments such as church organ, harmonium, typewriter, nylon guitar, upright piano, grand piano, whale bone, iron stove and 7 chords zither. All field recordings captured inside and around the house in Norway.
