Mirror Lakes (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Last Train
    Mirror Lakes consists of Frode Fivel (vocals), Knut Schreiner (guitar), Trond Mjøen (guitar), Havard Krogedal (bass) and Arne Mathisen (drums). This is an experienced group of musicians with broad experience – from bands like Kåre & The Cavemen, Euroboys, Turbonegro, I Was A King, Serena Maneesh, Heroes & Zeros and Hello Goodbye. Mirror Lakes sounds like a singer/songwriter backed by a loud rock band with a distinctive sound. The band members have a great musical heritage, but they show an emotionality and ambition that makes the songs never end up as a pastiche. First and foremost it is a group of friends who are beyond their twenties, but still want a creative band situation, a home for songwriting, studio production and guitar playing – hopefully for years to come. Mirror Lakes were recently signed to Warner Music Norway. Their first album has been recorded in Gothenburg, Oslo and New York and is scheduled for release in Winter 2012.

Invasionen (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 12:00am - 12:30am @ Last Train
    In the wake of the as poetical as well as political EP “Arvegods” Invasionen are back with their second album, " Saker som jag sagt till natten." The fiery sound is rooted in both krautrock and post punk. This is also the album where Dennis Lyxzén flourishes as a song writer as well as singer, even in his own language. Lyxzén hardly needs any introduction. As front man for Refused he was the passionate singer and agitator for friends outside of Umeå, and is one of the most influential songwriters and visionaries in the Swedish hardcore scene. The ban never got to be as big as they deserved to be in Sweden, but it was an international phenomenon, representing an almost life-changing inspiration for the hardcore bands, vegans and young, enthusiastic people around the world. Refused ended up on top, after the release of the groundbreaking and somewhat prophetically-titled album The Shape Of Punk To Come. This autumn Invasionen are playing live shows. The invasion begins in September, in China. Invasionen will sing in Swedish in China. Dennis acknowledges that it felt strange, until someone pointed out that the Chinese really do not understand English either! Having led two internationally successful band it would seem easy for Dennis Lyxzén to continue on the same path.

Pirate Love (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Last Train
    Pirate Love are finally back… The Oslo band, who by many people’s reckoning were heirs apparent to the Norwegian rock throne in the wake of their debut album “Black Vodoun Space Blues”, have spent their time since profitably. With their caustic brew of psychedelic nihilism, razor sharp guitars and otherworldly primal cries, Pirate Love have once again turned the reverb up to eleven, and as usual, they wander along rock’s more peculiar paths. Guitarist Milton Von Krogh, vocalist David Al Dajani, guitarist Henrik Steen and bassist Mr. R form the core of Pirate Love, which since their inception in 2005 has grown to become a sought-after name at both Norwegian and foreign concert venues. Their new album “Narco Lux High School” sees the band take a quantum leap further, and invites the listener on a sedated, transcendental journey into Pirate Love’s twisted musical universe. An album as troublesome as it is grandiose.

Vestindien (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 12:00am - 12:30am @ Last Train
    Vestindien started life in January 2010 and immediately began to play shows, soon becoming a favourite of the Bergen underground scene, playing shows all over town. At the time of writing, the band are putting the finishing touches to an E.P. at Pelikan Studios with Mattias Tellez (Razika, Young Dreams, Kakkmaddafakka, Real Ones) at the controls. Dag Erik Nygaard (Blood Command, Livstid, I.O.U.) will mix the record and it will be self-released on the band’s own label Totalagenda Records, in October 2011.

Monica Heldal (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 11:00pm - 11:30pm @ Last Train
    Monica Heldal, in spite of her young age (20) managed to garner both domestic and international attention. With her brilliant and technically advanced guitar playing and alluring voice she has left audiences spellbound in all manner of settings. Her deep-seated love of American country-blues and for the deceased Irish singer, guitarist and songwriter Rory Gallagher led to her being invited to play last year’s ”Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival” in his home town. After many plaudits she was invited back this year and that led to further invitations to play at Nottoden, in Oslo, The Netherlands and France. Monica’s songbook is primarily drawn from her own material but she throws in a couple of covers too. The material is a mix of trad. ragtime and country blues, straight up country and folk. Influences range from the aforementioned Rory Gallagher to Bonnie Raitt, Nick Drake, Chet Atkins, Jackson Browne and Neil Young amongst others.

Daniel Norgren (S)
    Sunday February 19, 2012 12:00am - 12:30am @ Last Train
    Daniel Norgren makes traditional rootsy Americana music filtered through the sound of Swedish forests.
    He first came to public attention with his 2007 debut, “Kerosene Dreams”, which was followed a year later with sophomore effort “Outskirts” and more recently “Horrifying Deatheating Blood Spider” which earned him a nomination for best Singer / Songwriter at the Manifest awards.

    Since 2009, Daniel Norgren has toured all across Europe, Scandinavia and has even visited the United States. On stage he plays his guitar and drums at the same time, and is joined by Anders Grahn on upright bass and Pelle Nyhage on the organ.

    In late September 2011, a new EP “Black Vultures” was released, including the track “Moonshine Got Me” amongst others. The 6 track EP is a studio quality live recording that was recorded for Mark Lamarr’s “God’s Jukebox” program on BBC Radio 2.

    “If blues singer Robert Johnson actually sold his soul to the Devil to become the world’s best guitarist, as legend has it, Daniel Norgren has probably offered the latter a similar deal.” – Roskildefestivalen
