Rebekka Karijord – “Mother Tongue” Review

Rebekka’s music has often been quite sparse and minimalist but her powerful voice and ability to create a sombre and intimate atmosphere has always made her music feel bigger than the sum of its parts. Never has that been more true than with her new album “Mother Tongue” which focuses of the most primal of […]
