Taking time away from her other engagements such as Peccatum, Heidi Solberg Tveitan delves into other areas of musical enlightenment with her new project Starofash. THE THREAD is the title of this fragile 10-track endeavor whose electronic manipulations and subdued instrumentation emit a tender yet barren atmosphere on tracks like "The Snake Pit" and "Blood Bones and A Skull". Don't expect anything harsh or overly heavy from this collection of tunes, as this disc draws its power from trip-hop backbeats with classical music instrumentation interludes weaving in between the melancholic musical movements a la Portishead and The Gathering. If massive amounts of orchestration and experimentation are up your alley, the latest from Starofash is worth a spin.
