Cakewalk is Stepan Meidell (The Sweetest Thrill), Øystein Skar (Highasakite, Sacred Harp) and Ivar Loe Bjørnstad (Hedvig Mollestad Trio). The music on their critically acclaimed debut album “Wired” from 2012 was described by Mojo Magazine as “hypnotic angular improv grooves, hammering home strobing images of Konono No 1 tearing it up with greasy Benzedrine hoodlums in a No Wave New York Loft.» – which pretty much sums it up.
Their second album «Transfixed» takes them in a new direction. The short, concise and sometimes punk-ish slap in the face is now replaced by a longer, darker and more massive album.
