Kristoffer Rygg discusses Ulver's experimental new album
With an unpronounceable name and a tracklist of live improvisations inspired by 70s psychedelia, Ulver’s 12th album is also the one where they finally leave their “existentialist darkness".
Today is a very different time for music because people’s attention spans are so short,” laments Kristoffer Rygg, Ulver’s maverick frontman for 22 years. “People don’t have the time unless they are basically spoon‑fed what to listen to. The good old days of digging for music are gone and it’s a shame.”
