Navyelectre (2)

So naturally I bought the album on iTunes. It's called "The Mourning" and it's splendid, indeed. It's a complete mish-mash between music hall, glitch, indiepop and more traditional rock, and it's basically just bizarre and beautiful at the same time. Hell, "Skullduggery" even includes a guitar solo which would've made J.Mascis proud (and that after an intro with clicks and noises and some sort of almost melancholic bossanova!?!). So yeah, hard to categorize, but defo worth buying!

Weird-shit-avantgarde-catchy-indie-pop. Norway again. Myspace again. And the song below strongly recommended:

The fuse is lit and the fire is on*

*from the lovely Urørt.

Children and corpse playing in the streets

Yes, that's a band. From Norway. And it's acoustic pop the good way. And Myspace.

And forget that Norwegian theme thing....

3voor12 streams the new Malcolm Middleton album, which includes a Madonna cover!?! And it's never too late to watch a drunken Santa just for the heck of it :-):

Spaceship move slow

I think I'm gonna do a Norwegian theme for the next couple of days. Here's Bellman. And here's Waffen XX. More to come tomorrow or Friday or something.

Sleeping like a log

Oh, yeah. Went to bed at 10 o'clock last night, so fit as a fiddle today :-). And Liverpool / the Philippines have got to be the places to be at the moment.

Love is a Waste

Holiday's over ....

Back to work tomorrow, aaargh, I could do with a week more. Nice weekend, though, went boozing/dancing on Friday, Saturday was spent with the obvious (crime novels :-)), and today I went for coffee at Props and did the laundry. And listened to this (ain't new or anything, just cool).

Lazy day (again).

Listening to The Boo Radleys:

And Swervedriver (bad, bad, bad audio, but so, so, so beautiful, still);

But tomorrow there'll be dancing :-)!

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

When you have that many great songs, you really can't go wrong. And The Cure didn't either. But I missed the synths in quite a few songs and I really didn't like some of the programming which they actually used. But they played so many cool songs, so what the hey (Plainsong, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea, Disintegration etc. etc.). And the extra-extra-extras were hotter than hot too. So a so-so concert which made you happy after all. And I'm still on holidays, so now it's back to reading crime novels (hence the Dalziel & Pascoe / Dickens quote :-)).

I Joined A Union

Or spent a lot of time recording an extravagant pop song :-). And winter holidays. And Wave Machines:
