New video

Yes, we made a new one:

And damn, it took forever to make :-).

Just checked some of our new friends on Myspace and found this band called the_rudderless_symphonies. And it's rather good! Electro-indie with some nice programming stuff. And lazy Saturday, went to Props with my son and jpg-masta, read a few hundred pages in a Dalziel & Pascoe novel and ate the leftovers from the Christmas lunch they're having in my house today. So now it's a glass of red wine and then off to bed.

Twisterella the boat

There's been a lot of talk about the Danish Crown Prince going on stage with Led Zeppelin Jam last weekend. I'm not really a fan of the Royal Family, but at least it made me think of one of my all time favourite bands, Ride. The reason being that the Crown Prince used to like them too (I can't remember whether I heard it on the show he did with Alex Nyborg Madsen in 1995 (?) or read it in a review of a Ride album, but that's not really important anyway). Here's Twisterella:

It also reminded me of one the best concerts I've seen this year, Kirsten Ketsjer at the Yoyooyoy-festival somewhere in Copenhagen NV. So here's Kronprinz Frederik The Boat:

And damn, I'm tired.

Hangover of the week

Company Christmas thing + Soundvenue release party = my head feels like the sound of this song:

Great cover btw (and I miss 120 minutes!). And yikes, going out tonight again.

Epidemic dreams

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yes, it's that time of year again. So.... a few presents below (and a fabulous family photo with yours truly looking like a tired old sod and Mikkel looking like he's trying out for a part in The Three Musketeers ;-)).

The first song is a new one, it's called "Epidemic dreams" and it's kinda odd (compared to what we usually do). And it reminds Camilla of sleep and purple teddy bears, which I guess means that she likes it or something.

Epidemic dreams

And do you remember the "Baby cool" video? Well, if not, I can tell you that it was recorded backwards and then reversed again, which meant that we had to do a backwards version of the song too. For some reason (and it's rather sad, when you think of it) we liked the backwards version better than the original, so we reversed the kick drum again to give it some "rhythm" and here it is (think dance meets shoegaze, I think).

Baby cool backwards

AND: There's some old stuff too. The first is the very first recording we made as pierre on my birthday (23rd of April) 2000. It's called "Petite" and it includes crap instruments and the somewhat funny lyrics: "you and me / nous sommes les morts petites". The second was recorded about a year later, it's called "Sea shell mind" and it's about a slightly weird girl we once knew (one of my ex-girlfriends to be exact :-)). And the guitar intro is so cool (in my view, that is). Neither song contains much singing (it's Mikkel's voice!), but a hell of a lot of weird shit beats (and the sound quality is bad, bad, bad, since it's very demo, but there you have it).


Sea shell mind

OH: And a video for "Cry for a shadow". Heather shot the footage in New York and Mikkel turned it into a video (and it's good, methinks). And thanks very much to Heather!

Have a good one (December, Christmas, New Year's etc. :-)).
