Editorial Reviews

After studying jazz improvisation, Inga Liljestrom has developed a voice that is arguably the most unique in Australia. With vast experience as both vocalist and cinema composer (including Australian feature films Angst and Sample People), Inga alchemises the last decade's experiences into the highly charged album "Elk". Gathering a talented ensemble of musicians to fully realise her wide-screen compositions, "Elk" features renowned jazz player Cameron Undy on bass/samples; horn/keys/gadget man Sloth (Meta Bass 'n' Breath/ Martini Club); guitarist Haydn Walker (The Pedestrians/Meta Bass); drummer Michael Iveson (Upshot); Michael Lira (Vicious Hairy Mary); Jacob Cook (beats); violinist Veronique Serret (Coda); plus other guests like Lloyd Swanton (The Necks), Paul Searles (Skunkhour) & Tim Rollinson (D.I.G.).

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Pete on July 21, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I was quite surprised when I heard Liljestrom (the 'j' pronounced as a 'y' sound) to learn that she was Australian. That's not to say great music seldom comes out of Australia (cause I've always strongly felt that some of the best music comes from australian artists) but I've never heard an aussie artist produce this particular unique sound.

Her style is like a combination of portishead, lamb, bjork, with a voice not unlike tori amos's.

However she still maintains her own sense of self, with her own unique talents.

What I appreciate most from this album is the different moods she explores. Some songs are quite emotive and deep (like "phoenix" and "glow"), others are somewhat strange and have the western portishead sound (which is a good thing)(like "film noir" and "29 poisons"). At one point Liljestrom even sings without the strong beats most of the other songs contain, in "all of this."

I found this album hard to find in stores and online(cause she's not popular enough-the good artists seldom are and are often overshadowed by the horrendous likes of australian idol winners) but it was worth the look.

If you like the above mentioned artists I referenced you'd love this woman.
