Jarle Skavhellen – Beech Street

Bergen’s upcoming folk-star Jarle Skavhellen returns with his second long-player after the 2018’s debut ‘Ghost in your smile’. The musical style is described best with Jarle’s own words: ‘Music for vintage souls’. As a fan of the sound of American producer Tucker Martine, he had the chance to records the album in Portland, U.S.A and they created a warm, analogue sounds that fits the retro aura of the songs very well. With a good amount of Americana-elements in it, it doesn’t sound like a usual album from the west coast of Norway.

While some of the songs already have been released on EP’s or as singles, the album already feels like a ‘Best Of’ with songs that fit well in these cold winter days:

Jarle Skavhellen has a flow of improving even more from his fabulous debut album in 2018. ‘Beech Street’ is a perfect retro-folk album that has a massive amount of wonderful tunes on it. ‘Lion’, ‘Winnebago’, Crash & Burn’, ‘Northern Lights’, … – all of them are perfect composed, arranged and played tunes that support his voice very well.
