The musical partnership of Mark Olson and Ingunn Ringvold has produced a glorious-sounding album of songs about love and “the beautiful outdoors”.
’Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun’ has a delightful chamber-pop feel to it, courtesy of the string arrangements from Ingunn’s Mellotron, which recalls great baroque-pop songs such as The Left Banke’s “Walk Away Renee” or The Zombies’ “She’s Not There”.
The album gets off to a cracking start with “Dear Elisabeth” which will delight Jayhawks fans with Mark’s trademark vocal phrasings. Lyrically, the scene is set for the rest of the album, with a refrain of “Where are the yellow hummingbird flowers” and a melodious flute-like Mellotron solo.
Whether it’s intentional or not, “Time of Love” has the feel of Love’s 1967 psychedelic classic “Forever Changes” with its woozy electric guitar solo and elaborate string arrangement.
This is music that will speak to you about things that have happened! An album that sounds like you are alone in the desert all by yourself. Remembering childhood experiences and musical instruments and all the joy that took place. We have forgotten because of terrible things that have happened. Is it the truthfulness that attracts you to this music? Listen out of time: Mark Olson & Ingunn Ringvold are singing ‘Spokeswoman of the Bright Sun’
