LP version. After appearing on more than 400 albums as a sideman and session player, multifaceted guitarist and instrument collector Geir Sundstøl gave Hubro a trilogy of his, long awaited, own compositions. Now he is back, with a follow-up to Norwegian Grammy-, Spellemannpris- winning album Brødløs (2018). St.Hanshaugen Steel offers an extraordinarily wide range of genre references, and takes you further into Sundstøl's original and distinctive soundscapes. With clear cinematic features, Sundstøl displays an ever-impressing variety of instruments, sliding from the deep and rough bass harmonica to the sharp, circus-like marxophone. In between, multiple layers of glimmering steel. guest appearances by the angelic Sølvguttene boys' choir bring utter goose bumps, while other parts of St.Hanshaugen Steel might induce the darker chills of Nordic Noir.
