Album Notes
Finnish accordion daredevil Kimmo Pohjonen joins with Trey Gunn and Pat Mastelotto (from King Crimson) forming the trio KTU (pronounced "K2"). Their second album, Quiver, recorded in Texas and Finland, follows their live 2005 debut, 8 Armed Monkey, and features guest appearances from original KTU member Samuli Kosminen, now with Icelandic band MuM, and three pieces mixed by Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson.

David Fricke of Rolling Stone calls KTU "a robust tumult of Northern Lights sparkle, white-wolf guitar wail and rolling knotted thunder...as powerful and transgressive as the killer King Crimson. Pohjonen is a wonder unto himself: animating his wind song with pedals and processing; attacking the bellows with the ecstatic fury of Jimi Hendrix."

“KTU sounds like a Siberian mushroom shaman, with accordion, meets King Crimson and Cream in the world’s most psychedelic power trio!”(Jussi Niemi, Aamulehti)

KTU has toured in USA, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Japan, Spain, Portugal, Estonia, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Norway and the Spot Festival in Denmark.

I was desperately waiting for this album. It could be just great with this line up. And it is great indeed.
