KAADA Music For Moviebikers CD

Kaada is a Norwegian composer of moody orchestral pieces that are as much influenced by morose 80's pop as they are by modern soundtrack music. People of an ‘indie' pedigree (even one that may include Antony & The Johnsons, Wechsel Garland or Rachel's) may have a tough time with this, as overwrought mood music this light and airy is functional for little more than taking a nap, but there are moments on the misleadingly titled Music For Moviebikers that transcend, such as “The Mosquito and the Abandoned Old Woman,” with it's wrenched notes from a surf guitar, and the haunting vocal and forlorn acoustic guitar on “Celibate.” Much of this rather beautiful and adventurously arranged album plays like most soundtracks without the benefit of their visual inspiration—pleasant enough but ultimately ineffective.
