Vidar Busk: Vidar Busk: Love Buzz

Publisert: 01/21/2005 av Tomas Lauvland Pettersen


MIC’s Listen to Norway series continues with Vidar Busk’s sweaty "Love Buzz" album.

On his latest solo outing, renowned guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Vidar Busk takes a giant leap toward a position as a preacher of modern soul. In the past, Busk has been more of a back-to-the roots blues player with the occasional raspy vocal track thrown in for good measure. On “Love Buzz”, Busk takes the step fully into the hip-swinging territory of soul and r’n’b and even strays into the waters of hip-hop. For a man that has been labelled the great white hope of Norwegian blues for years, this is a bold move that is surely set to bring Vidar Busk out to a wider audience. “Love Buzz” features a wealth of rolling and pulsating grooves, laid-back and confident vocals and solid backing from a competent crew of musicians. Be sure to check out the opening track “Rock and Bowl” that deftly fuses soul, blues, latin, hip-hop and r’n’b into a truly infectious and irresistible concoction.
