Title - 'Destination Venus'
Artist - Steinar Karlsen

For those not in the know, on his fifth album, Destination Venus, Norwegian guitar wizard Steinar Karlsen continues his musical journeys within in the landscape of instrumental rock.

Inspired by artists such as Ry Cooder, Marc Ribot and Pink Floyd Destination Venus is a spectacular and extraterrestrial travel you will remember for a long time.

On his brand new album (out May 8th, 2020), which contains twelve original compositions and which was recorded in Amper Tone, Oslo, Norway, Karlsen -- whose other albums include: Ulydium (2011), Hanens død (2013), Tog til Sunnfjord (2015), and Tur (2015) -- Karlsen continues to being forth his excellent, and highly dedicated love for instrumental music.

1. 'The Goodbye' (4:59)
2. 'Night Flight' (2:24)
3. 'The Karman Line' (3:32)
4. 'Weightless' (0:58)
5. 'Picnic on the Moon ' (2:33)
6. 'Space Camel' (3:09)
7. 'Monsters' (3:45)
8. 'The Trip' (3:15)
9. 'Red Skies' (1:46)
10. 'Venus' (2:36)
11. 'A Billion Stars' (5:02)
12. 'Acid Rain' (1:57)

Karlsen opens with the cool, mid-tempo, lo-fi surf flow of 'The Goodbye' and backs that up seamlessly with the short, but sweet, perky and yet darkly feisty 'Night Flight,' the drum-led 'The Karman Line' and then, at just under a minute, the effervescent 'Weightless.'

Next up is the light and breezy hipsway of 'Picnic on the Moon' which is followed by the thoughtful, constructively scenic 'Space Camel,' and then both the ghostly dancefloor shuffle of 'Monsters,' and then the bright and bouncy ambiance of 'The Trip.'

The album then rounds out with a short delve into the Heavens on 'Red Skies,' the bouncy pop vibe found within 'Venus,' and then comes to a close on one of my own personal favorites, the thoughtful, precisely intricate, hopefully and aspirational, and yet yearning and longing of 'A Billion Stars,' and then ends with the industrial laser tones and drum-saddled back beat of 'Acid Rain.'
