about

Grouse returns to the album format for a third time with a brand new offering, Oslo.
Consisting of eleven tracks ranging from the jazzy “Cornucopia”, “JVH”, and “Interlude J” to the more instrumental-hip-hop influenced beats of “Crosstown” and “Silence”, the album is the follow-up to 2012’s 'Heads'.
Known for mainly using live instrumentation, this time Grouse has reversed recent trends and produced a more sample-heavy album.
At least that’s how it started. In many cases, the samples are hard to spot as Carroll adds the usual flurry of live instruments including horns, dubby bass lines, and electric piano.
Oslo has a more jazzy, instrumental hip-hop feel while sticking to the mellow, atmospheric, downtempo associated with the Grouse sound.

Favourite Track: Taking Nothing Seriously
Comments: Deep beats, swirling melodies and rich tonality combine here to establish 'Oslo' as a go-to collection of mood setters. Whether the mood is the late-night bumping of Intervention, the smoky club vibe of Interlude J, the spirited energy of Crosstown, or the jazz styling of Cornucopia, this collection is the one to reach for when it's time for a little mood-setting. Tough to pick a favorite!
