ROCK-A-ROLLA (UK)

Chicago Reader (US)

plan b (UK)
«…it builds like a runaway train of thoughts and possibilities before breaking through barriers into a world of new and rapturous potential.»

Coke Machine Glow (UK)
«Huntsville are a wonderful new edition to the experimental ranks of jazz and electronics, both in their seasoned instrumentation and the obvious joy they take in created music with character, soul, and humor, as well as a lot of broken middle class dreams.»

BBC (UK)
«…involving, evocative music that’s genuinely emotionally engaging as well as pressing all the right buttons for those on the lookout for new sonic thrills. Beautiful.»

Boston Weekly (US)
«A Norwegian improv trio armed with a banjo, a double bass, a pedalsteel, a bizarre tabla machine, shruti boxes and a fondness for freeing folk from its folk songs—from Santa Fe to Bombay.
