Release January 1st 2007: Salvatore "Days Of Rage" (RJCD036)
Working with John McEntire on they're two former releases, this one sees them taking more control, together with long time Salvatore sound engineer Ingar Hunskaar. The result is a more playful approach, with letting loose some great new energy. The album shows a raw, compelling, propulsive side to Salvatore, exploring beat-driven areas that have generated a wild enthusiasm in audiences at recent concerts.
Not quite rock/pop, and not quite art/experimental, Salvatore inhabit an important mid-point in contemporary music. The music is intelligent, but does not compromise on heart, and that great feeling of euphoria.
Upcoming Norwegian tour:
January 17 - Kristiansand - Trash Pop
Posted May 10 '06: Tour coming up in Spain and Portugal:

Posted April 5 '04: The first Norwegian reviews of Luxus are ticking in,
and they're loving it!!
Posted March 12 '04: Salvatore are finally ready with their fifth album Luxus. The album was recorded in Oslo, but once again they've collaborated with John McEntire who mixed the album in Soma Studio in Chicago. Luxus is heading in a different direction than Tempo, and although it was recorded in Oslo, this is their most global sounding record to date. Audible influences from elements like Jamaican Dance Hall to West African and Turkish traditional music, combined with improvised noise parts and their permanent kraut leanings this makes it their most exciting album to date. Another new element is the use of vocals, but we're still not talking pop music here.... There has also been a change in the line-up, with guitarist Ola Fløttum (The White Birch, Portrait od David) leaving the group, and multi instrumentalist Jørgen Sissifus Skjulstad (Center of the Universe, Now We Got Members) joining the band, but both are present on Luxus. Other guest appearances include Frances May Morgan and Leon Avanti (Now og Radio 9), the Slovenian string quartet Vašem Zdravlju Orchestra, and Racing Junior's own P. Klostermann debuting on guitar... Release date: April 13.
