whereas their past releases have been recorded quickly in locations as varied as guitarist fredrik vogsborg's father's office, the hallway of the bergen jazz association, and an old canteen, 'aabenbaringen over aaskammen' came to fruition at the band's own pace within their rehearsal space at the newly established bergen kjott (bergen meat). as a result, the record is much more cohesive than their collection of previous singles and unlike anything casiokids have released thus far. as vocalist ketil kinden endresen explains, "doing the recordings within the same timeframe left us more focused in the studio, shaping ideas from sketches into the finished songs with the whole album in mind." additionally, as a natural development, the four-piece were keen to expand their musical palette and experiment further on the production side. despite this newfound attention to the art of recording, don't think that casiokids have abandoned the simple joy of creating music with their namesake instrument. says endresen, "even though we've become more interested in production possibilities, we still wanted to retain the rawness of the earlier releases. the dulcet tones of the casio will always be at the core of our manifesto."
