1. Building Instrument – Kem Som Kan å Leve [Hubro, 2016]

My major discovery and love this year was Mari Kvien Brunvoll and her various works. I respect Hubro label for the stuff they do but this was beyond my expectations. It wasn’t just experimental jazz. It was something else I couldn’t put a label or a tag or anything at all. I fell in love with her songwriting. So mystical and dreamlike and at the same time melancholic and peaceful 🙂 It’s the best thing by far as a whole that I heard this year.
