Röyksopp announced themselves in 2001 with their hugely successful platinum selling debut album Melody AM, establishing themselves among the elite of the hip Scandinavian music scene. A further trio of albums have followed: The Understanding, Junior and Senior which includes collaborations with some of Scandinavia's finest: Lykke Li and Karin Dreijer Andersson (The Knife, Fever Ray) and there is also the matter of Grammy nominated The Girl & The Robot featuring Swedish pop songstress Robyn and remixes for Depeche Mode, Coldplay, Beck and Lady Gaga. Their Late Night Tales mix is eclectic, diverse and wonderful. Sliding from light folk to widescreen ambience to experimental rock to prog-pop (seasoned with the occasional guilty pleasure); its all in the spirit of the night. Following exclusive introduction track Daddys Groove, Rare Birds beautiful 1975 B-side Passing Through leads into Australian supergroup Little River Band. The first of several delicate folk moments, its joined by the ever soulful John Martyn and the surprisingly chart-topping acapella cover of Neil Youngs After The Goldrush by UK trio Prelude. Theres a strong representation of alternative European sounds. Röyksopp mine deep and wide to unearth the rare and unusual German psych-pop of Richard Schneider Jnr (featuring none other than Cans Jaki Leibezeit on drums), Frances unique F.R. David and the new age melodies of Switzerlands Andreas Vollenweider - its pop Jim, but not as we know it. There are also the more familiar names of XTC and Thomas Dolby, as well as Röyksopps exclusive cover of Depeche Modes Ice Machine. The music draws to a close with goth-dream-pop 4AD founders The Mortal Coils Emmylou Harris cover Till I Can Gain Control Again; blending into a cinematic moment from German electronic avant-garde band Popol Vuh, contributing to the soundtrack of Werner Herzogs 1972 movie Aguirre, the Wrath of God. The second part of the Benedict Cumberbatch narrated story Flat of Angles closes time on this coolly individual edition of Late Night Tales.
