Tragedy near Stockholm this weekend as Warrington band Viola Beach and their manager were killed in a car accident yesterday.

Young innocent guys, doing what they loved their lives destroyed in seconds, their families in disbelief. The […]

13/2/16 – Yeasayer – I Am Chemistry – 2016

At first I didn’t quite grasp Yeasayer’s fractured, modernist, electronic Pop music, too much ice cream, not enough crust on the pie. Are they designed to unnerve or offer comfort, take you away from the nasty past and ween you into an inevitable future or are they trendy nerds messing with soundscapes or just normal 21st […]

11/2/16 – Lana Del Rey – Honeymoon – 2015 / Freak – Video – 2016

Another track and  video from Lana Del Rey’s latest album Honeymoon. The song features an extended five minutes of moody piano and floating submerged characters from the video. I say characters because I’m hesitant to call them actors or cult members, or mermaids or water nymphs or Lana’s friends. Anyway it might bore you but […]

From yesterdays post of Norway in 1967 to today’s post of Norway now. Okay-Kaya is so new that she there isn’t much info about her yet. Here’s what I know: Her brother was in a Black Metal band and taught her how to play songs by Satyricon, it obviously didn’t ‘t rub off on her, […]

9/2/16 – The Dream – Get Dreamy – 1967

One of Norway’s most famous musicians, guitarist Terje Rypdal started his recording career in the early sixties with the ‘Norwegian Shadows’. The trend for instrumental guitar groups with glassy lead tones was a worldwide phenomena and The Vanguards were the Norwegian version. England had Hank Marvin but Norway had Terje Rypdal and although Rypdal is latterly […]
