ljungblut villacarlottaLJUNGBLUT originally started out as a solo project from SEIGMEN/ ZEROMANCER bass player and main songwriter Kim Ljung in 2005. He needed an outlet for songs which didn’t fit in with his main bands. After three solo albums in English, the project evolved into a full quintet - and they released two independent albums in Norwegian. ‘Villa Carlotta 5959’ is the sixth LJUNGBLUT album, and the last in a trilogy of albums with Norwegian lyrics. Here, several songs have historical references. ‘Hasselblad’ about the 12 Hasselblad cameras left behind on the surface of the Moon. ‘Superga’ referring to the Superga height outside Torino, most known for the cathedral and the plane crash that killed the Torino football team in 1949.

Then there are songs referring to Ljung’s chronic migraine - ‘Min Krig’ (My war) and ‘Aldri helt stille’ (Never completely quiet). The album has a wide range of tempos and dynamics, but at the same time a cohesive sound and melancholy mood. An organic sound with Kim Ljung’s characteristic voice surrounded by a plethora of vintage synths and instruments. The basis of the album was recorded live in studio and mixed by Alex Møklebust (SEIGMEN/ ZEROMANCER) and Terje Johannesen.
