The journey on Opus 3 gives a lot of highlights. Introducing the genre "Slothcore" Invented on Fawm 2021 (February album writing month. Web community) Slothcore is music between 20-40 BPM. Described as a lesson you listen to, but are too tired to hear. And suddenly, when you almost fall asleep.... You wake up.
"Anomaly Republic" and "So Tired" are Xuxu contribution in this genre.
The epic story about family "Jensen" is actually made on a steel wire on a Webster Chicaco. This was probably recorded in early 60`s or maybe earlier. The voices you hear are the parents of a good friend of mine; Tore Hauk Jensen. A huge thx for this stunning recordings that he has taken good care of. I have put it in the context of art music.
This is an album with a deep dark mood. But also melodic and dramatic at times. An epic journey to strange and dark music. Xuxu are developing a own kind of magic and sounds. Opus 3 is ear candy.
Special thanks to Tore Hauk Jensen. It`s awesome!
