Norwegian intensifying/neo-psychedelic/jazz-rock trio Elephant9 shaped in Oslo throughout the talents of keyboardist Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent), bass participant Nikolai Eilertsen (Nationwide Bank), and drummer Torstein Lofthus (Glowing). The instrumental group’s heady mixture of middle-’70s Mls Davis, Deep Crimson, and Medeski, Martin & Hardwood has drawn significant praise from both jazz and rock and roll neighborhoods worldwide. Elephant9’s debut record, Dodovoodoo, premiered over the Rune Grammofon label in June 2008, accompanied by Walk the Nile this year 2010. The music group issued Live on the BBC in 2011, as well as the documenting was greeted with almost general acclaim, garnering curiosity from over the rock and roll and jazz press. When Elephant9 came back to the studio room, they enlisted guitarist Reine Fiske (Dungen, latter-day Trad, Gräs och Stenar) being a collaborator for 2012’s Atlantis — he received co-billing. After a rigorous episode of touring, the associates of Elephant9 had taken time away to spotlight their other specific tasks. Fiske was enlisted once again when the music group began documenting sessions for a fresh record. In early 2016, Sterling silver Mountain — once again co-billed — premiered by Rune Grammofon.
