Why are they such a great band?

Here is why:

This video is from their DVD Where we’re calling from, released 2003 – discovered by me today.

I just fell in love with the music of Bat for Lashes (mypsace: http://www.myspace.com/batforlashes). Natasha Khan is so gifted and she also has an experimental edge to her music. Her new album is called Two Suns and is released april 6. Daniel is the latest single.

Lately I’ve mostly been listening to music while driving taxi (I work as a taxi driver). I just discovered a new favourite record; Big Star’s Third / Sister Lovers. I’ve had it for a while, but haven’t paid much attention to it before now. There’s so many really good songs on that record, my favourite is Blue Moon (not the same as the Elvis song). I had previously heard that song as a cover by 4ad band His name is alive, but didn’t know until now it was written by Alex Chilton.

I’ve been listening to a lot of new norwegian music the last few months. I think the last couple of record’s I’ve bought has been by norwegian bands. There are some good new records out there. The record by I Was a King (released jan/feb 09) got some great reviews, I’ve been listening to it but I’m not all that impressed.. some of the songs are very good but others are just mediocre. Their best song Norman Bleik is very good indiepop music. Anne Lise Frøkedal sings in I Was a King, but her main band is Harry’s Gym, their new record is well worth a listen, it’s more synth-oriented and atmospheric, but it’s got some good songs and ideas.

Last year’s best norwegian record was IMHO Medea by Rockettothesky. The band is mostly Jenny Hval with some musicians helping her out. The record is experimental and atmospheric, and can sometimes sound a little bit like The Knife, but the sound is more organic and the compositions seems a little more developed than the swedes.

This video is a live tv-performance with Neon Neon:

I’ve been listening to Neon Neons only record Stainless Style a lot lately. It’s a great sounding record with lots of synths, but some songs are guitarbased too, and there’s even some hip-hop there as well. It’s a side project by Super Furry Animals frontman Gruf Rhys and producer Boom Bip. The record is a concept album based on the life of “playboy” car designer John DeLorean. It’s a great record!

I also would like to recomend the norwegian hardcore band Rumble in Rhodos and their record Intentions from last year. Check it out on myspace.
