SPONSOR OF THE MONTH
Lise Gulbransen recommends Chrome Hill's "Country of Lost Borders"
Chrome Hill as an ever so little Norwegian super group. Band members Jørgen Munkeby, Asbjørn Lerheim, Roger Arntzen and Torstein Lofthus come from bands such as Shining, Subtonic, In The Country and Elephant 9.
"Country of Lost Borders" has no musical borders. The album is rich and powerful, and songwriter Asbjørn Lerheim is creative. Jazz, country and rock melt together into an explosive and catchy sound.
