Today, the Norwegian prog-psych-jazz-rock fusionists Motorpsycho are celebrating the release of their 31st studio album Yay!, that is out now on Stickman Records and in Scandinavia & UK through Motorpsycho’s own label Det Nordenfjeldske Grammofonselskab.
Keeping things unpredictable and weird since 1989, and after a series of epic, sprawling and headphones-friendly albums, Motorpsycho return with a short, reasonably pop-formatted and intimate album of mainly acoustically based songs. Motorpsycho have always been about the balance between hard and soft, electric and acoustic, big and small, light and shade … and now the time was right for a lighter touch to balance the scales. Yang to the Yin of earlier, more epic works (N.O.X., The Crucible, and Chariot Of The Gods), this is also an album that is relatively easy on the ears, and that actually works really well with a cup of tea at noon.
For once playing the game instead of trying to reinvent it, Yay! is clearly a reaction in some way to too much architecture and too many grand visions, and dials the music down to more comprehensive and digestible sizes than have been the band’s métier lately.
In support of today’s record release, Motorpsycho have shared a music video for the song „W.C.A.“! The clip is now streaming here:
