Albums Of The Week: Björk | Fossora

The Icelandic eccentric digs deep on her self-described 'mushroom album,' sharing personal tales set against banging beats, off-kilter electronics & lush orchestrations.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “each album always starts with a feeling
that i try to shape into a sound
this time around the feeling was landing on the earth
and digging my feet into the ground
( after my last album utopia which was all island-in-the-clouds
element air and no bass )

“how i experience the “now” is also woven into how it is written
this time around 7 billion of us did it together
nesting in our homes quarantining
our mutual “now” is being so long in one place
that we shot deep roots down

“my new album fossora is about that
it is a word i made up
it is the feminine of fossore ( digger, delver, ditcher )
so in short it means “she who digs” ( into the ground )
therefore when i was describing the sound to the musicians on it,
i would call it my mushroom album
sonically it is about bass, heavy bottom-end,
we have six bass clarinets and punchy sub

“fungus duggen down
hope you enjoy it
