"So perfumed that the winds were love-sick with him"

I still very much like P.G. Wodehouse!

That beat... fucking great! So screw that I'm tired. And that it's very much old news. Because "IRM" by Charlotte Gainsbourg is hefty as hell. Go listen!


Still pretty tired. Out for a few beers and drinks on Saturday. And watching the brilliant Liverpool-Man Utd. game on Sunday. And Drømmenes Bodega rehearsing. And Boombox recording yesterday.
So "Roslyn" by Bon Iver & St. Vincent is rather nice in such a situation (via Soundvenue High 5).

I want this as a t-shirt. "I now Ultraviolet Thunder, Immortal Master of Eagles", hahahahahaha.

And Søren's back blogging, yay!

And finally a great post-rock album again! Do Make Say Think's "Other Truths". 4 songs: "Do", "Make", "Say" and (surprisingly :-)) "Think". It's the Canadian sound, alright, but somehow at the same time simpler and more complex than what they usually do. It's jazzy without being crappy and noisy without being noisy? I can't really explain. But pheeeeew, it's great, I wanna grow up and play drums like that! And you can listen at 3voor12. And guess what? I really, really think that you should (I would seriously rate it 5.5 out of 6)!

This could do for a century...

This is an order: Go check this band out!
They're Norwegian. They're called Sky Is A Roof. And they're brilliant. Think Mogwai playing like a folk band (while singing), if that makes any sense. And if you like bands that sound like "Mogwai playing like a folk band (while singing)" I really meant the thing about it being an order.

Cool thing about being in Jutland: You listen a lot to P4. So yesterday I heard "Coco" by Miss B. Haven and I suddenly remembered how much I actually liked the band in the late 80ies and early 90ies. Never bought an album, just listened to the radio and saw them play once at Kløften Festival. Anywho, "Coco" is still a wonderful song and so is "Kandis Karrusel" (and Lise Cabble has the best female voice ever in Danish rock). And you can get a lot of free mp3's here! And this song's cool, too (and notice the bass player, I kinda thought she was very hot at the time :-)):

1: I'm feeling fine after a week of illness :-).
2: Yesterday we played our first concert with the second band we've started after the ONBC break up. And that also means that we've found a name for it. It's called Mikkel Max og Drømmenes Bodega. As the name suggests Mikkel's singing in Danish (while playing guitar and the occasional melodica or even flute) and the other five members (Ulrik, Søren, Torben, Jpg-manja-Jesper and moi) handle percussion, drums, synth, guitar and bass. We'll be making a Myspace profile or whatever shortly and upload a few songs, the style being folkpop with a hint of indie and country. I think. And the concert went super. We only fucked up a couple of times and the audience seemed to like it. But then again it was a private party and we knew quite a few of them, so....:-). But nice to know that we're capable of playing six songs, so we're expecting that we'll be able to play a "real" concert in a few months time. And thanks to the lovely, lovely, lovely Helle and Christina who let us play at their Birthday party!
3: And since I've been ill I didn't drink all that much, so no hangover today (but amazing evening, though, it even included a funky outdoor lapdancing of some sort :-)). So spent the day moving gear, eating at Halifax and having a beer at Plenum. Where they played this and I might have said it before, but that song is just so fucking great and the guitar solo is just so out of this world cool (and the sound quality is crap btw):

My god, I feel bad. I'm sneezing and coughing and what not. Goddamn! This is what happens, when you spend a Thursday evening standing outside and drinking beer at a Crunchy Frog housewarming (and then spend the weekend having fun with an old friend in stead of drinking tea). Cool party and cool weekend, though, but today is just hell.
But: 49ers are 3-1. Brøndby won. And some nice things will happen this week. So not all that bad. And The Rumour Said Fire's The Balcony is Ugens Uundgåelige this week, which is very nice, when you're ill and have to listen to it 5 times a day :-).
