Palindrome is featured as an Editor's Pick at CD Baby and receives a beautiful five star review, describing the album as being "tasty as hell".
We've been invited to play at the SPOT Festival in Aarhus, at VoxHall on June 6 at 15:45 hrs. We're really looking foreward to playing at our favorite festival. Photographer Annette KjÃ¦r will be performing together with us.
Danish national daily Jylland-Posten gives Palindrome a five star review, describing Pauseland as being "elegant".
"Palindrome captivates the listener with a poetic feel, a midnight mood", writes Geiger.dk in a fine review.
"Hypnotizing and delicately spellbinding", writes Jakob Ã˜stergaard Nielsen about Palindrome in Danish jazz magazine Jazz Special.
We really enjoyed playing in front of a packed audience today at Musikhuset Aarhus. JP Ã…rhus has an interview with Christian in today's edtition. Tomorrow we'll be playing in Copenhagen at Statens Museum for Kunst at 15:00 hrs.
Danish music magazine Gaffa gives "Palindrome" a fine four star review.
Today our new album, "Palindrome", is released. The Danish daily Politiken has a fine photo article about the recording session. SÃ¸ren and Christian will be interviewed in TV-2 Ã˜stjylland (MiddagsMagasinet) - and will play a little, too.
We are happy to announce that our second album, entitled "Palindrome", will be released on February 1, 2008. The music was recorded in SÃ¸ren's parents' attic on September 13-14 last year.

We're playing a concert in Copenhagen at Statens Museum for Kunst Sunday, 20 May 2007 at 15:00 PM. Free admission.
Odense Musikbibliotek has put our album on their list of Danish jazz albums of the year 2006. Thanks!
Here are some more press quotes about our debut album:
"A really beautiful album"
(De Bergske Blade, Oct 17, 2006).
"Lyrical and beautiful music, at times fuga-like" (Jazz Special, Dec 2006).
"I warmly recommend going for a 45 minute exploration of Pauseland" (Dagbladet Holstebro-Struer, Dec 2, 2006).
"Incredibly well-sounding, laid-back music" (Femina, Dec 14, 2006).
A longer quote, in Danish:
"En cd, som lÃ¦gger sÃ¥ meget op til behagelig inaktivitet, at der skal mere end almindelig virkelyst til at modstÃ¥ fristelsen. Cd'en "Pauseland" er fantastisk vellydende, tilbagelÃ¦net musik, skabt til alle de gode pauser, hvor hjernen fÃ¥r lov at slappe sÃ¥ meget af, at der bliver plads til tanker. Jakob Buchanan, Christian Vuust, SÃ¸ren Dahl Jeppesen og Klaus NÃ¸rgaard har gjort frikvarteret til en musikalsk kunstform, som alle burde unde sig selv." (Femina, Dec 14, 2006).
