DJHDD It's 2 degrees of separation but miles apart in platitude’s & longitude; such are the lush cinematic soundscapes that these sound painting's conjurer in the imagination of a mad poet. Inga’s voice rings true in its subversion of Bjork, Portishead, Lamb but you will find an authentic depth in these songs that will lead you to the edge of her Gothic folk film noir deportment. Favorite track: Phoenix.

Inga Liljestrom - Elk
Inga's much-lauded second studio album, which sat atop the Australian independent dance/electronic charts for a year. Described at the time as "film-noir for the ears", it drew comparisons to everyone from Björk, Portishead and Lamb, to David Lynch, spawning a run of sell-out shows, festival appearances and a special Sydney Opera House Studio performance, along with a live set for Triple J who also hit listed first single 'Phoenix'. It scored numerous Album Of The Week trophies, even on commercial station Nova who gave it their 'Chill Album" spot.
Having already made a name for herself as the voice behind Gerling's hit single Dust Me Selecta and voicing tracks by Hi-Fi Mike, Baggsmen, Friendly, d.i.g., Itch-e & Scratch-e, Alien Headspace, ENS and many others, this is the album that really launched Inga's solo career. It's a lush and beautifully cohesive, yet darkly fragile work of immense proportions. That otherworldly quality fans had always associated with Inga (and heard on debut LP 'Urchin') reached new heights as her stunning lyrical images found wings to soar in a fresh band-setting where talented players provided live strings, contrabass, Moricone-esque guitar, fluglehorn/trumpet, keyboards, samples and fractured beats. To say the result is cinematic, is an exercise in understatement.
