We mentioned that BTW I Was A King recorded their latest LP, Old Friends at Daniel Smith’s Familyre recording studio in New Jersey. So it’s no surprise that the Norwegian duo have landed on the Sound Familyre label for the US release of their album (it came out in Norway in August). “Nightwalking” is, of course, a good companion for “Daybreak.” There’s less clatter around Frode Strømstads’s pleasingly layered vocals, but there are two Danielson-esque breakdowns, where it sounds as if all the instruments tumbled out of the back of the truck.
I Was A King – “Nightwalking”
Old Friends is out 1/25 via Sounds Familyre.
