Starting with “ATGCLVLSSCAP”, the tenth studio album by perennial favourite Norwegian band Ulver, released on HOM. This is amongst my top 2016 albums. It is a masterpiece, it is Ulver’s domain, inventing new sounds and exploring new ways to propose them with every new release. The music in the album was culled from multitrack recordings made at twelve different improvisatory “free rock” live shows the band performed in February 2014, and later edited and enhanced in the studio by long time contributor Daniel O’Sullivan. The album has been described as “Ultimately a piece of work that exists above and beyond any conventional live recording, rather a hallucinatory travelogue as potent an experience to bear witness to as it was to construct.”
