Corporation Long Stay

2018 – Corporation Long Stay

Here is an album that both bears its name while transgressing styles and musical rhythms. Like his previous electronic experimental EP, Mikka Grytviken weaves here with his Power Trio landscapes where styles meet, collide, confront each other and finally merge. The Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms are illuminated sometimes by a blues-rock electric guitar and sometimes by an acoustic guitar with a gypsy jazz perfume. We meet country guitars on Creole mazurka rhythms and other times psychedelic rock guitars with jazz fusion phrasing mixing with funky and soul feeling. The Blues is here unraveled and debunked to be revisited sometimes in fourteen bars on a drumming drums with bass shuffle and guitar with New Orleans accents and sometimes on a binary ballad in an unusual verse chorus structure. The Pop music is not outdone which is tortured by harmonies and arrangements borrowed from Jazz which is discreetly omnipresent all along the album. English, Creole and French lyrics full of poetry tell us often sensual sometimes ironic stories carried by a voice with an amazing tessitura and tone. Corporation Long Stay is not only a musical trip but also a great earthquake that reorganizes a map of the world whose boundaries become intentionally unreadable for the purpose of reconciliation through stylistic intermingling.
