The new Instrumental Progressive Jazz Rock project Hedvig Mollestad Weejuns unveiled the track “Go At Your Peril” and launch pre-orders for new double album “Weejuns” due out on September 01, 2023 via Rune Grammofon. Stream the track through the SoundCloud player below:
After seven albums spearheading Hedvig Mollestad Trio (still very much active!) and three solo albums, the guitarist is here introducing a brand new, exciting trio while breaking some new ground in the process. Ståle Storløkken (keys) is known from Supersilent and Elephant9, while Ole Mofjell (drums) is part of a young generation making waves on the European improscenes. Weejuns is a solid step into shimmering, hardcore improvisation and breathtaking instrumental interplay, echoing Bitches Brew-era Miles, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Supersilent, Henry Cow, Soft Machine and 73-74 period King Crimson.
Thus it makes perfect sense that this exhilarating new trio’s debut is a double live album, with four tracks recorded at the new Munch Museum in Oslo, and one track each from Blå in Oslo and Spor5 in Stavanger. Prepare to be dazzled!
