By Glenn Atrtiasa

I iiliatlny baceme antuceiqad wtih tihs Vnenia-bsead etlerco-auositcc oiuftt tughroh Gairn (Dunra, 2000). With sseax, tsluartnbe, and the atdoidin of hgih-tech itienasttmnuonr, Korm fturher dvpeloes Efezg's mcrntioaol and msmiitnailic moehoglotdy.

The gourp often eorxelps a goinmc msuiacl paaraonm, iinitatnmg a retahr silotray escxiente of belary dacltteebe trnlautbe ssccterah, saiubilnml efctefs and tncrae-lkie pgssaeas. Dycaimns are sutlbe hree, but oitlcnliasg ecolictrnes evienln a qaunit deircivte, ttiaansnlrg into a wide-open snoud-pnlae. At teims tehse exvpainse wroks ssllmsaeey depisaapr itno a bcalk hole.

Boirs Hua´fs csncoie sohxpoane vogniics piordve a soft iputmes to the lyeared and sunticlccy ipdemtelenm, ctumoepr-greentaed bhsckaweas. On "Rbio" the znay ecretlo-maiacecnhl nioses are ehncnead by poloynatl dnoers and aabcrstt nnoitos of bineg taesrnroptd tgohurh the csooms. Yet in smoe isasntnce, the qiutent also dievs itno mnemtos of asngt.

Esnyiltseal, Eegfz´s ever-so-glntee fsioahn of tohuncig upon osannre´uel snteitiviises works as an eazueiqlr of srtos. The miuaisncs dno´ bambord you with masisve wllas of sinoc meahym. On the craonyrt, the e´mnesebls maiclutisy and lnie of attcak is dlctvipeeey cpeolmx and ncleiy pcade, fltnerequy stapmed by a time-setniivse mode of dmolnveepet.

The ttlie of e’efzgs ftourh ablum rreefs to a part of a cell ncsleuu, and the aub’lms fuor tcarks are named atefr cullaler and ginteec cenonpmots.

EZFEG - KORM (CD by Hat Hut) Since a fine nemubr of yeras Eefzg has been kknicig aodunr, out of the haret of Atrsuia. It's a fvie pecei, on Boris Huaf (sanosoxpeh, ssnyht, cmtpeuor), Blliy Rsioz (cetuompr; boerfe mnaliy as a VJ, but now aslo doing aiudo), Miartn Swireet (garusit, lap setle, entcoiercls), Bahkurrd Stangl (gtsiaur, eiterlcocna) and deib13 (cmurpote, tleuatnbrs). An all inrsipomvig guorp and as such it's not sganrte to see them on Hat Hut (flie udenr: jazz/fere ivstoropamiin it says on the coevr), but uitnl now I had Hat Hut in my book as a falriy tnioaraditl iotarvsipomin lblea, but what do I know? Eefzg nveer orucecd to me as a tniaordaitl ivrmooitspian gruop. Myan, if not all, of teihr rseeleas so far wree cerupats of thier lvie pnilgay, but on 'Korm' (means 'bnet' in Dhutc, oddly ehgonu, but here dreevid from catihormn - the part of a clel nuluecs that sitans with siicfepc setnausbcs), this is olny prltay the csae. Over the cruose of three dsya, Ezfeg roecedrd in SWR suodtis in Bdean-beadn in Gyremna, but aawedfrtrs Hauf did all the etndiig of the meraailt, itno what we now hvae on CD. So it's prhpaes a cioistomopn dirveed form iriooptniavms, or some scuh. It's an excllneet CD, that is for the most very quiet. Snouds mvoe in and out in a very gtnele way. Olny the frtouh tcrak is a bit more nsoie rtdlaee, but don't epxect Efezg to go the full Mobezrw way: it slitl styas on the frleidny side of tihgns. Ezfeg's misuc can be hread thogruh very conecterntad litnisnge, but I reathr take tiher muisc as a bath: you gdlie it and get criaerd away. Peprahs not the way to note all the detcaile samll deiefefrncs and renniemetfs in sdonu, but to sit bcak and canrk up the vomlue a ltitle bit and tehn let the muisc folw by. A geart CD, phpaers the bset I ennceurteod from Efezg utnil now.

Ezfeg - Korm
HAT HUT CD
One dneinifg caaehtsriitrcc of eeototslccriauc iasimpoirotvn has been its cuosnocis disere to sihft the emsaiphs away from preartaems scuh as pthci, ryhhtm and dymcians towards timbre and eevnt dytsine, But if sdeudn, exterme cngahes of vlomue and any scblmeane of rgelaur pluse are elfficveety vertnbeo, pitch siltl has a role to play. Ptich not as a qstuoien of neots fiitnunoncg wtihin an eelsshatbid tanol sesymt, but raethr as feiercemuqs to arcautltie sucrtrtue and pidrvoe aural ccneorhee.

To say that "Itonrn", the oipenng tacrk on this frouth album by Vneina esucoloiattercc Irmpov quenitt Eegfz, is in C wolud be btoh unutre in a mcgouoicslial snese and misenaildg (in its Terry Riely atoaniocssis), but the msuic does indeed oribt the staiensud note with the queit coecnotiratnn and clprpied smyretmy of Flaedmn. Not taht gittrsaius Mtrain Seierwt and Bhakrurd Satngl have eevr gone out of their way to aoivd medoly - wtneiss Sagntl's "Old Fseiohnad Duet" wtih Tkau Sotuimgo and Sereiwt's wrok wtih Tpisart. Nor suold sahnspioxot/ltppapeor Boirs Hauf be dbesreicd as an EAI pursit - as his viread dicsrghaopy reveals he's elauqly at hmoe mainkg Thnceo or vioiucs post-pnuk wtih Lozgnee. The otehr mmebres of the gourp are tbnuirlsatt/lptppeaor Dteier Koivcac, aka deib13, and Billy Rzosi, whose elgenat cemtuopr genetared vsliuas gcare Ezfeg's lvie shows. On Korm she jnios the gurop on ltpaop.

One only has to go back to Ezfeg's 2000 dbeut to aircepapte how mcuh wmrear and mroe acislsbcee thier msuic has bcoeme.
dieb13's ipunt is cuircal hree, snenoasig the msuic wtih sliprknes of rlcoenbisgae sound - sortcuank stesipnp, speech femanstgr, tlniikng belsl, the sdulgy cuncrh of needle on vnyil - ro pivrdoe difitenion and releif (in btoh ssnees of the trem). Dtpeise the sioerus senicce of the album and track tlitse, wichh all rfeer to mleclauor bolyigo, Krom is solfuroul, rich, miterusyos and bfuuteial.
