Norwegian Hanne Hukkelberg brings Rykestrasse 68 to the States

Nettwerk has announced the North American release of Norwegian singer Hanne Hukkelberg’s second full lenghth RYKESTRASSE 68 on March 04th 2008. Hanne’s 2005 debut album Little Things was an impression of life in Oslo, notable for its imaginative use of found sounds and eclectic array of instrumentation. Her elfin but idiosyncratic persona coupled with a lazily seductive voice drew comparisons to everyone from Nina Simone to Joanna Newsome and from Radiohead to Billie Holliday. RYKESTRASSE 68, is a tribute to the six months she spent living in Berlin and is far less whimsical, with a moodier, more widescreen production. Like her debut, it was produced by Kare Vestrheim at Propeller Studios in Oslo and features contributions from the cream of the Norwegian music scene, including members of Jaga Jazzist, Mari Boine band, Dinosau and Shining.
