Hanne Hukkelberg's second album, RYKESTRAßE 68, begins with her delicate vocals over a gentle strum on "Berlin," not a far stretch from what her first album offered. The suggestions of flamenco fire up "A Cheater's Armoury" and shares the space with the swing of the chorus. Her aquatic leanings almost make a reappearance on "The Pirate," a slightly creepy piece that makes a detour into a haunted bordello. The use of a typewriter as percussion on "The North Wind" makes for a rather inspired choice, while "Ticking Bomb" uses a kick drum and places some banjoed Bach over it. Though Hukkelberg's vocals are mostly quiet (she even switches back into her native tongue for "Pynt"), when she goes for a full-throated singing, as on "Break My Body," it's a sonic brick to the ear. A worthy successor to the still-stunning LITTLE THINGS.
