Title: Blixter Toad
Format: Double CD
Label: Asphodel
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Fe-mail, Maja Ratkje and Hild Sofie Tafjord, have crafted a site-specific survey of the chaparrals of noise music. As half of the Scandinavian female improv quartet, Spunk, they began to adapt their mediums of French horn and voice to multiple formats for musical arrangements. In working for film, installation, studio, and performance they began to evolve their musical process to a compulsive physical act, opposing their classically trained standards. Exposure to distorted live sampling and field recordings allowed Maja and Hild to grab the limit and make it their instrument. Through synched communication and developed improvisation, their project further evolved into their newest release for Asphodel, Blixter Toad. This two disc set is best described as the taxonomic designation of feminine conviction through gadgetry and acoustic archaeology." - Asphodel.

Artist: FE-MAIL
Title: Syklubb Fra Hælvete
Format: CD
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Out of Norway comes the most exciting noise LP Ive heard to date. These two women romp thru stimulating noise compositions fresh and clean w/ a distinct Scandinavian frost. But theres always an undercurrent of warm embrace, sweet and masterful. -- Thurston Moore. Already an incontestable figure of the Scandinavian music scene, Maja Ratkje follows the release of her stunning first solo album, Voice (Rune Grammaphone), with Fe-Mail. A compulsive musician who, beside her main activity as part of all-female avant-garde free-improvisation quartet Spunk, is, at only 29, a lecturer in composition at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, a world-renowned contemporary composer, an impressive singer and accomplished musician. Together with fellow Spunk-ette Hild Sofie Tafjord, Ratkje improvises with analogue electronic gear, samplers, voice, harmonica, and miscellaneous acoustic instruments to shape a more defined and delicate, if such a word can in any way define the realm in which Fe-mail evolve, series of soundscapes." - Important.
