Björk returns for a tenth solo album drawing inspiration from the death of her mother in 2018 and the subsequent COVID-19 isolation period.  The album is sort of themed around fungi with the title translated as “digger,” thus Björk is digging up messages of life from the underground.  The music is familiar to Björk’s recent work, mostly down-tempo tracks with swirling clarinets and thumping electronic beats as the bed for Björk’s unique voice.  This all good but I do miss when Björk albums contained some upbeat dance tracks too.  Other voices complement Björk’s  with guest artist including her children Sindri Eldon and Isadora Bjarkardóttir Barney.

Rating: ***

One thought on “Album of the Week: Fossora by Björk

  1. Great Halloween Video! The music is creepy and creative and the lyrics are profound. I can take it in small doses. It would make a wonderful scary movie soundtrack don’t you think?
