Catalog no.: PLP0002014

Item ID: 405234

Limited to 300 copies on black vinyl. Taking inspiration from
'80s art pop à la Japan, Prefab Sprout, Roxy Music and The Blue
Nile, as well as progressive rock and electronica, The Opium
Cartel offer a sophisticated, sleek and emotionally engaging
sophomore album. The line-up features musicians like No-Man,
Henry Fool's Tim Bowness and Stephen J. Bennett, as well as
White Willow/Anglagard drummer Mattias Olsson, Wobbler's synth
wizard Lars Fredrik Froislie, indie jazz sensations Pixel's
Ellen Andrea Wang and Harald Lassen, and finally Norway's pop
icons Venke Knutson and Alexander Stenerud. The project is
helmed by White Willow guitarist/songwriter Jacob Holm-Lupo,
well known for his meticulate and atmospheric productions.
Whereas the first album featured prominent vocalists like
Rachel Haden (Todd Rundgren, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World), this
current album gathers even more bespoke vocal talent. Main
singer is Venke Knutson, one of Norway's most successful pop
vocalists. Another prominently featured singer is Alexander
Stenerud, who is by many regarded as the true heir to A-Ha's
Morten Harket, Norway's King of Pop. The cover is by
world-renowned photographer Bruno Dayan.

Also available: ARDOR (CD).
