Catchy vote (5/6)
Röst convinces at first attempt. His debut album "Ghost Station" is a very positive surprise from a hitherto fairly unknown artist.

Röst is another unknown leaf for many, and here we have in many ways a debut album that comes as a thunderbolt.

Magne "Röst" Neby grew up on the west coast, but moved three years ago back to the roots of the hinterland. The artist has worked his way to a relatively distinctive style, and toys in a hybridized genre with elements of Americana, bluegrass, country and pop.

With bright and pleasant vocals Röst demonstrates that he possesses good qualities, but here the artist at the same time show that he has skills as a songwriter and composer. The result is surprisingly easy to digest and very catchy.

This record set the standard early with the driving songs "If You See Me Falling" and "I Want You", before Röst pull it all down with "Not As Bad" and "Don't You Wake Up Tonight". The latter is an extremely honest, interesting and naked song with a solo banjo and drum in addition to the buzzing sound of traffic in a big city behind vocalist's own vocals. Here is the artist at his most vulnerable, and the result appears to be very solid.

"One More With You" and "How Good It Feels" takes it all up again, and so on through all tracks. With considerable variation in tempo, mood and messages we areleft with a dynamic album that almost never gets uninteresting.

A voice noting

Behind the stage name Röst hides a traveling guy from Randaberg.

Magne Neby studied biology at Harvard and music at Paul McCartney-school Lipa, and he currently lives in Tangen, Hedmark. 29-year-old offers timeless pop-rock with americana-touch and provide Ryan Adams, Avett Brothers, Conor Oberst and Jonas Alaska as references.

This is a debut filled with great melodies, fine details and text which flows easily, and he has a voice made for the genre. It does not hurt to have good people with him.

Objection to such publications tend to be variation, but Röst takes the right moves to keep the hold of the listener. Is there a song that starts in the gray area, he takes action quickly and get it to shine. As the gearshift in the chorus of "One more with you." Hear also "Dandelion". The song comes as cut number seven of 11 and follows a fresh feel-good song. The tough opening makes you think that now he burned all his gunpowder. The feeling lasts for almost exactly two minutes. Then something happens and when Röst comes to the line "I did not mean two hurt you", you believe in him.
Should you fear that he now sails into calmer waters, comes sauntering "Never Gonna Come back home" with a wonderful 60s feeling. Most of all, it takes me back to an old Kinks-record.

The remaining tracks on the disc is nothing weaker. Opening cut "If you see me falling" and the last cut "Bed sheets" are both good, and they frame the things that are better. Not least, "I want you" and "Not as bad" are tracks that shows what he is good for.

Still working on that hot first release.
