Línt: Then They Came For Us Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Línt: Then They Came For Us A year and a couple of months ago I shared 'Mierka' with you, a beautiful slice of post-rock that served as first taste off Norwegian six-piece Línt's debut full length. Titled 'Then They Came For Us' it was released this Spring and if you're into post-rock spiced up with elements ... (Click To Continue Reading)
This Is Head: This Is Head Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden This Is Head: This Is Head It's no secret that This Is Head made us big fans with the greatest of ease when they released their most excellent debut ‘0001’ in 2010. The followup, 'The Album ID' (2013), was just as great - perhaps even better - and really added to our expectations to what might ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Have You Ever Seen Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?: Family Man Categories: Finland • Rock • Videos Have You Ever Seen Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?: Family Man With a band name that could've been an FM Belfast song title and an 80s and synths sound not entirely unlike the Icelandic outfit, Finland's Have You Ever Seen Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? take their place on the neon-and-retro-fun pop scene with their new, great single, 'Family Man'. It's released ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Man The Machetes: Av Nag Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Man The Machetes: Av Nag One of the best punk albums to come out of Norway in 2013 (and the supply was almost endless) was Man The Machetes' debut album 'Idiokrati'. So, that should be a tough act to follow, right? Not really. Man The Machetes eats "the difficult second album" clichés for breakfast with ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Stockers!: Running Away Categories: Finland • Rock • Tracks Stockers!: Running Away Following up on two successful singles last year Finnish indie-quartet Stockers! have changed their game a bit and moved synths front and center on their latest offering, 'Running Away'. Where 'She’s Got My Love' and 'What Do You Want' had more in common with an act like, say, Editors, 'Running ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Turboweekend: Share My Thunder Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Turboweekend: Share My Thunder It's been two years and a bit between Turboweekend's third and fourth full length. In between the four Danes have apparently been struggling with their identity as a band which turned the work with 'Share My Thunder' in to a process of finding a way back. Which I guess can ...

Ribozyme: Grinding Tune Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Ribozyme: Grinding Tune Norway's Ribozyme have been around for some years but really peaked with 2012's 'Presenting The Problem'. That album was interesting in its effortless blend of metal, rock, industrial and a few dashes of electronica - and luckily Ribozyme don't try to reinvent themselves on 'Grinding Tune', instead opting for doing ...

Terrible Feelings: Tremors Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Terrible Feelings: Tremors I had mixed feelings about Terrible Feelings' (see what I did there?) debut album 'Shadows' from 2012. On one hand I loved the two tracks 'Intruders' and the angsty power pop song 'Days To Come' - on the other hand I thought the rest of the album was somewhat unspectacular ...

Spidergawd: Spidergawd II Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Spidergawd: Spidergawd II Last year Spidergawd released their eponymous debut to great critical acclaim in Norway and a Spellemann nomination for Rock Album of the Year. It's also an album that completely failed to make its way my way, so I'll have to take the press release's word for it. Luckily the quartet ... (Click To Continue Reading)
