Bloksberg (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 10:30pm - 11:00pm @ Gloria Flames
    The duo consisting of Eivind J. Vullum and Jens-Kjole Bjerkan, formerly of Sally Suicide, has certainly found new paths for its future trips. So far in their short career, the band have played support for 120 Days in Oslo, Bergen and Kristiansand, Klubb-Øya 2011 at Revolver in Oslo, ENO magazine’s release party at Landmark in Bergen and opened for Martin Rev (Suicide) in Oslo. The band play real analog synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers, musical genre is defined as “Tækno”. A unique proposition for both young and old. “The boys in Bloksberg, these beautiful, captivating, boys are the kind of young fellows you’re just as likely to meet at a Kiss concert as at some sort of new age ritual and are quite possibly trying to modernise E2-E4. A bold undertaking, perhaps but that’s not something they’re too worried about.” – Herr R, Beglomeg, Club Knulldrøm

Sandra Kolstad (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 11:30pm - 12:00am @ Gloria Flames
    When Sandra Kolstad’s debut album “CRUX” was released it received great reviews with standing ovations across the Norwegian media. The record, produced by Kolstad herself, even had several critics ready to anoint her as the new queen of Norwegian electronica. Kolstad is known for her highly visual performances. She makes electronic music, but as a classically trained pianist, she has big ambitions for the music’s live potential. Kolstad impressed – and surprised some perhaps – as a live proposition at last year’s Øya festival, when she was joined on stage by a bodybuilder, in addition to noise musician Marck Fuck and her faithful band member, the Swedish jazz musician and improviser Francis Petter Eldh. And Sandra Kolstad isn’t one to rest on her laurels, her next album is already slated for April 2012.

Jabba The Butt (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 10:30pm - 11:00pm @ Gloria Flames
    Jabba the Butt are an experimental noise-rock duo originally from rural Northern-Norway. With only two members, a bassist and a drummer, the sound is bound to be unconventional. And that is very much the case with Jabba the Butt. The band sounds dirty, rough and at times quite groovy and noisy, and brings to mind new hardcore as well as old sludgecore and heavy metal. The band consists of Rolf-Ole Rydeng Jenssen and Lars-Erik Kroken Mikkelsen, and the boys have consistently delivered compelling, innovative and interesting live shows.

Reptile Youth (DK)
    Friday February 17, 2012 11:30pm - 12:00am @ Gloria Flames
    This band is so awesome they haven’t even released one single track. Instead the two renegades Esben Valløe and Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen in Reptile Youth have focused on honing their sonic cocktail with frequent brushes with the law and a musical horror show at every concert that makes everyone go crazy. You would most definetely do the same. In September Reptile Youth recorded their debut album in London with Dave M. Allen (The Cure, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk) and Marc Ralph (Lady Gaga, Hot Chip). Reptile Youth have already played Iceland Airwaves, Roskilde Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, Trailer Park Festival, Spot Festival, Reeberbahn Festival, Berlin Independent Night amongst others.

Beglomeg (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 9:30pm - 10:00pm @ Gloria Flames
    Beglomeg is a mechanism built up by hypnotic rhythms under a retractable bass machine with brass tubes that goes up to an upper part, where psychedelic death funk is being processed by a spanish archivist and a hungarian doctor into giant flashing bulbs of buttered butlers and transcendental european bastards dripping bossa, rumba, prog, imitated italian library, Asia. And maybe even the odd super-easy? Beglomeg, a dansband for the living dead, a music box for cockroaches.

Simian Ghost (S)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 10:30pm - 11:00pm @ Gloria Flames
    Initially Simian Ghost was an experiment, the solo adventure of Sebastian Arnström, but has subsequently become a full band. The first album “Infinite Traffic Everywhere”, written and performed by Sebastian Arnström, was released in 2010. On the record he plays to an electronic backing track, mixed with drums and guitar, the poppy result of his background in the Swedish indie scene. The album received great reviews and was was named Album of the Year 2010 by readers of dagensskiva.com. Shortly after this, Simian Ghost became a trio, having been joined by Sebastian’s brother Erik Klinga and mutual friend Mathias Zachrisson. So far this past year, they released the fantastic E.P. “Lovelorn”, played concerts with, among others, Mount Kimbie, Firefox AK, Håkan Hellström, and at festivals such as Way Out West, Storsjöyran, Umeå Open and Trästockfestivalen. The band has just signed a deal with Playground Music, where the focus is on promotion. The first single from the E.P. “Bicycle Theme”, was released in the UK this past Autumn and the new album will be released just in time for by:Larm 2012.

The New Tigers (FI)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 11:30pm - 12:00am @ Gloria Flames
    The New Tigers are a Finish fuzzy pop group based in Turku. The music of The New Tigers sounds like you were sitting next to a jet engine and listening to 60′s pop on a walkman that plays the tape slightly too fast. Their songs come in many shapes; fast, slow, loud, hushed, long, short… but their melodies are always blissful. The New Tigers are influenced by a zillion different artists. Some people have said they sound a bit like Yo La Tengo, My Bloody Valentine and Teenage Fanclub. In September 2011 the Finnish label Soliti released The New Tigers’ eponymous debut album. The album gained excellent reviews in Finnish music press and country’s biggest newspapers, and was also positively reviewed on various international music blogs.
