Norwegian/British duo Food has just released their third album with ECM, their eighth overall, This Is Not a Miracle. (Get it from Amazon.) The core group consists of Thomas Strønen on drums, electronic percussion, Moog, and Fender Rhodes, and Iain Bellamy on saxophone and electronics. They’ve had numerous guests over the course of their nearly 20-year career, including trumpeters Arve Henriksen and Nils Petter Molvaer and guitarist Eivind Aarset; on This Is Not A Miracle, the pair are joined, as they were on the previous two albums, by experimental guitarist Christian Fennesz.
