*In process of stocking. 2022 stock* "Madam Press is a quintet from Denmark created by five talented women whose main goal is to experiment within coherent musical structures. In fact, the first thing that struck me when comparing Madam Press´ music with other improvisational outfits was the emphasis that some of the musical pieces here have in achieving melodies and twisting them beyond recognition. That is, while other improvisational musicians try to extract sounds from their instruments this woment try to shape this sounds into some strange melodies thata re essential in their music.
There is a lot of spontaneity here and that becomes evident from the first minute to the lst one of this recording. I have been gratefully surprised by the amazing voice that Nina Björk Eliasson has, using it like another instrument and adding sort of an ethnical feeling to the improvisations. Mette Stig Nielsen is an expert in adding dissonances to the music playing chords that will surely struck your ears but tht when combined with the other instruments constitute a really coherent musical form. And a lot of the better things here are created with the good interaction between the five musicians (or four in the case of the quartets) where they achieve the greatest levels of inspiration and show how you can add rhythmic phrases, melodies and sounds creating amazing musical compositions full of coherence and virtuosism." - Federico Marongiu
