Complete your Bel Canto collection. The best album from this Norwegian duo. Mixing "arctic" pop music of sometimes breathtaking glacial beauty with electronics and Eastern influences, Bel Canto had a sound all of their own, as well as a superb vocalist in Anneli Drecker. was released (meanwhile he had become Biosphere and carved out his own territory in ambient techno), nevertheless this is the band's definitive highlight.
Jenssen left before the recording of Shimmering to pursue his solo career as Biosphere; arguably he took some of the harder and darker edges of Bel Canto with him, but by no means all, and the band was not crippled as a result. The duo of Drecker and Johansen here create another bewitching array of songs with sources young and old, resulting in another exquisite fusion of modern technology with haunting touches from the past. The two strongest songs open and close the album respectively.

Shimmering, Warm and Bright is norwegian band Bel Canto’s third release, and it was issued way back in 1992. It was also their first release without electronica wizard Geir Jensen (aka Biosphere) in the group, which resulted in a slight change of musical style, and what is probably their most commercially successful release ever. Musically this album is solidly placed in the world of electronica. Analogue instruments can be heard throughout the album, but the most important and defining sounds in the soundscape here are electronic.
Shimmering, Warm and Bright by Bel Canto. Lyrics: There's an old, old giant. Sneaking around inside this house. Help move the cupboard. Make a huge barricade. Shimmering, warm and bright. We need a helping hand. We have lost our touch. If his shadow appears. We're going to fall apart. I mean we got addicted long time ago. But that spooky, old giant won't withdraw. When I'm in a shitty mood I will put this album on and dork the fuck out. 5 years назад. Tanya Tobalyas Moore. J!Adore;) - Lady Tobalyas. Maximiliano A Aregger. Reminds me to several things, but in particular to Cocteau Twins.
