Rustling wind. Check. Ambient bird calls. Check. Serpentine Hohner Clavinet funk. Check. Originally released in Copenhagen in the winter of 1979, Klaus Schønning’s Lydglimt was reissued last month via the ever-sleuthing Frederiksberg Records (the label responsible for unearthing one of our favorite jazz reissues of the past five years). A baker’s dozen, the record is a taut embrace of ice cold synths and a Teac 4-track recorder.
All propers to Schønning for making ornithology infused Danish funk a thing.
