That reminds me of this friend otherwise never sends something that aroused equal my attention. I liked the number immediately , and the musical world from which they came, I was fascinated. the MP3 remained over the years on my desktop, so I could play it the same. as Max Hole offered me the opportunity to own label under the umbrella of UMGI to create, I thought: 'Okay, now I have a home, but who can I let in there?' Somehow I could think of immediately the sound file that I had on my desktop for so long. I listened to more of Thomas' to music. And the more I listened, the more Confident I was that he should be the first artist I fOr my label Strange Cargo under contract might take. Before I knew it, I was in the airplane on the way to Norway to see Thomas at a show in Drammen, a suburb of Oslo. to my delight, it turned out that he live was captivating as well. "

"After a lot of work and not less tequila and wine we had sometime nearly thirty songs together and were able to begin to make a selection for the album," says Klein. "We dropped time and tried to create something that both of us touched, something that seemed to us from beginning to end new and fresh. Then we sent our baby to the wonderful Tchad Blake [inter alia, for the blending of albums by the Black Keys and Sheryl Crow has won several Grammys], so that start with the blend could. "
"It is difficult nowadays to create something truly authentic, new, different," concludes Larry Klein his praises of Thomas Dybdahl, "something that is not only different, to be different, but at the same time honestly and directly. During the recordings we slipped alternately in the role of devil's advocate, to tease out the best in us. And often finished a musical phrase of the other. We took the time to do everything reasonable, and walked no compromises. The result can now be heard on 'What's Left Is Forever'. "
