Mathias Stubø Band
    Wednesday February 15, 2012 8:30pm - 9:15pm @ Nokia teltet
    Mathias Stubø delivered two of the top albums in 2011, if one takes the critics seriously. In May he released “Real Love Tastes Like This” under the moniker Proviant Audio, and got 5/6 & 5/6 reviews across the board. The second album was entitled “1979” and released through the über hip label BBE Records (J Dilla, Masters at Work, Pete Rock, Jazzy Jeff). BBE rarely sign new, young artists, but fell head over heels when they heard Stubø’s disco. A new Stubø album is already in the works. “Mathias Stubø competing for the unofficial gig-of-the-festival.” – Q Magazine after by:Larm 2011

Oslo Ess
    Wednesday February 15, 2012 9:45pm - 10:30pm @ Nokia teltet
    Their fresh and dirty street rock paired with Norwegian punk poetry gave Oslo Ess a tremendous 2011. They were already off to a bright start by signing a record deal and playing the Urørt Final in January (National radio station P3’s equivalent of BBC Introducing). Then they played three fabled by:Larm performances in February, released their debut album, toured and played most of the major festivals. Oslo Ess makes it cool to sing in Norwegian again. They classic rock with large doses of Rancid-esque punk and Swedish Ebba Grön, tell credible and very charming tales about everything from strippers, junkies in love and stolen bikes. Oslo Ess rise from the gutter with a wide and infectious grin.

Rumble in Rhodos
    Wednesday February 15, 2012 11:00pm - 11:45pm @ Nokia teltet
    Rumble in Rhodos have fused a fascination of old fashioned Punk/Funk, Art Rock, 70’s Prog Rock, and modern indie rock into an expression which shakes your core and gently caresses the small of your back. Signs of Fervent Devotion, is mixed by none other than Brit, Nick Terry (Klaxons, Serena Maneesh, Libertines, Franz Ferdinand) and Tokoyo-based Alan Brey. They´ve added to the already ambitious and pulsating effort, a calm and balance needed to communicate the album’s ingenuity. While crafted in a cheeky and daring way, it shocks as it delivers. Rarely does such a hungry and greedy rock record from Norway, resonate so thoroughly. So, look out for this unusual breath of northern air, as Rumble in Rhodos release our third consecutive album on Tuba Records now! With a track list packed with hits and our most thoroughly crafted material to date, we have shone a light to our future sound. On November 29, 2010, they released their first single, “White Dancing” as a T-Shirt and download code, through the label, Fysisk Format. The song was a fixture on P3 radio station since the release and made it to Dagbladet’s list of songs of the year.

Honningbarna
    Thursday February 16, 2012 12:15am - 1:00am @ Nokia teltet
    Honningbarna can undoubtedly be hailed as last Summer’s breakout band from the Norwegian festival circuit with around twenty festival gigs now under their belts. The crowds have packed out the stages they visited, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. It might be because Honningbarna are a rock band that actually dare to have an opinion! From a rebellious youth perspective, they are cram their songs full of hard hitting messages about an incomprehensible adult society, and they deliver it with the energy and fury that only angry teenagers possess.

Hanne Kolstø (N)
    Thursday February 16, 2012 9:30pm - 10:00pm @ Nokia teltet
    Hanne Kolstø, also known as one half of electronica duo Thelma & Clyde, is a restless singer / songwriter who never fails to surprise. In forgotten sounds and abandoned synths Hanne finds hidden melodies. Growing up in the shadow of the mountains in Sunnmøre and subsequently for the last decade in Kristiansand has certainly left its mark. There is often an Obstfelderesque (Norwegian poet) alienation behind her lyrics and sounds, and even in her most beautiful pop songs, there is a sense of desperation in her mystical, unpolished voice. “You’ll notice that fantastic sensation of music that grows on you every time you hear it, that reveals exciting new details each time you listen. In the end you’re left with one of the most exciting Norwegian debut albums in a long, long time.” – Musikknyheter.no 8/10 “Riot Break is the record that Björk has been promising for fifteen years but has never delivered… It is lucky that we don’t give quantitative scores in reviews in this paper, because any number I were to give would be too low.” – Morgenbladet

Casa Murilo (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 1:30am - 2:00am @ Nokia teltet
    Over the last few years Casa Murilo have made serious headway in a crowded Norwegian indie scene, and have managed to establish themselves as one of the most relevant bands of their kind. Not unlike Mumford & Sons, they too are more than capable of treading that fine line that needs to be taken when you’re a folky indie band. It is truly sing-a-long stuff that can catch you off guard, whisking you along with their legion of fans, which is growing steadily not least due to their phenomenal live shows. It says something perhaps that after their Øya show in August last year, Plan B magazine hailed them as Norway’s best band. Come to the show and let Casa Murilo show you how good it can be when you marry British precision and Norwegian spirit.

After touring together Hot Chip asked them to remix new single “TV Friend”, and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age has covered their track “Space to Rent”. WhoMadeWho gained further popularity when they played a headline spot at Benicàssim in 2007 after a delay caused headliners, the Klaxons, to arrive too late to play their set.

Machine Birds (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 9:30pm - 10:00pm @ Nokia teltet
    Machine Birds play experimental pop with touches of electronica and improv. Their music encompasses everything from melancholy melodies to catchy riffs, and varies between a simple and a massive sound. The atmosphere, the dissemination and the sheer presence in the songs takes the aucience on small musical adventures. “There are few musical universes as attractive as the one that Machine Birds have created with “One Last Try”. Without a doubt this is the most beautiful thing to have come out of Urørt this year, beautiful production and stripped down pop which stays in your heart long after the track is over."
    - NRK Urørt “With an impressively wide ranging, dynamic sound (especially with only two people on stage), this is a band that has quickly found its own voice: Eberson’s heavy synth waves combined with lighter, catchier riffs and Skranes’ dreamy vocal underpinned by various looping and tape effects.” – Studvest “Together we were admitted in to Marte Eberson and Maria Skranes’ dreamworld. A world full of electronic, organic and incredibly beautiful music. There is perhaps a contradiction in there somewhere, but it a really long time since I’ve heard electronic music that is so “live”." – Under Dusken

The Amazing (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 10:30pm - 11:00pm @ Nokia teltet
    The Amazing is an apple that fell far from the tree. A natural process: coming together through affection, then slowly crystallising into a folk-rock- psych-pop- collective slowly pushing, bending then playing with any preconceived notions of pop. When a band take a name like The Amazing, they’d better be have the chops to back it up. Happily, this Swedish outfit – a collective headed by Reine Fiske (who’s solos so furiously it’s as if something’s trapped inside him that must be turned into melody or he’ll burst into flames) of neo-psych juggernauts Dungen and singer-songwriter Christoffer Gunrup – are masterful enough to take that mantle on. Friends first and foremost, it’s this kindred spirit that imbues the band’s two previous releases (“The Amazing” / “Wait For A Light To Come”) with a feeling unlike that of most releases – one of natural harmony, persistent progression and with a panoramic gaze fixed on distant settings. Some review excerpts: ”…the cream of Sweden’s psychedelic/neo-folk underground, an album of rare beauty." – MOJO 4/5 “Swedish underground supergroup’s debut suggests the dusty riches of some
    long-lost LP locked away in psychedelic folk-rock Valhalla.” – SPIN “…a sublime debut, genuinely an amazing album” – UNCUT 4/5 “The Amazing’s first is a gorgeously understated blend of gentle psychedelic pop, tranquil folk rock, and gently stoned prog.” – Q 4/5 “…a classic case of strength in diversity, blurring the boundaries between folk-rock dreaminess and psych splendour” – Word With an all-encompassing sonic soundscape of groovy electric folk rock, psychedelic pop and heavy jams. The intimacy permeating through their songs intensifies itself steadily in the music they produce; swimming idly through the groups twisted melody, yet luminously anchored by Reine’s astral guitar. Elsewhere they forgo interstellar for a more bucolic revelry, built upon acoustic laments and a male and female vocal ripple that could only have spread itself outwards from Sweden’s forlorn beauty. Nothing is introverted or overworked – everything is balanced, kept together by natural melodies, soulful vocals and just how perfect should be. The Amazing is a feeling, an organic consequence of something that effortlessly came together, the start of a quite extraordinary tale. The band will release their 2nd album proper worldwide in October/November 2011; “Gentle Stream” is widescreen, panoramic, horizon-reaching stuff. An elegantly constructed record of moody psychedelic majesty, it comes with a greater dose of CSNY-style Laurel Canyon bliss than those previous recordings. Astral guitars intertwine in serpentine solos, horns blast rainbow melodies and Gunrup’s flute-like voice floats elegantly over the sunset sounds. The line-up completed by Alexis Benson, Johan Holmegard and highly rated jazz drummer Moussa Fadera, The Amazing lives in Stockholm, Sweden and formed plans to collect themselves in this incredible unison. There are doubtless stories to be told. Including the one about playing a show for the Swedish Royal Family and Pink Floyd, where in the crowd Roger Waters appreciatively caught a bouquet thrown from the band during a standing ovation, but this mysterious band hold one principle dear to their hearts: “The music speaks for itself”.

Team Me (N)
    Friday February 17, 2012 11:30pm - 12:00am @ Nokia teltet
    If you believe bloggers and journalists all around the world, Team Me is one of the hottest newcomers of 2011. And it all started out as an accidental success when Marius Hagen and his private, little side project Team Me ended up in a Norwegian national radio-battle for new and unsigned bands. Marius quickly had to get a band together and Team Me made their live debut in January 2010 at the finals of the contest. Marius´ little secret is not so easy to hide anymore. The world seems to fall in love with this little indieband and their rich orchestrated music and unique live shows. Still surprised by the attention the band started doing live shows and releasing singles, which led into the Team Me EP that was released the winter of 2011 by Propeller Recordings to great reviews. The EP peaked at # 92 on the American CMJ top 200 with a base of solid airplay on different american radio stations. Team Me have the last year played a lot of concerts at events like The Great Escape in Brighton, Club NME in London, Spot festival in Denmark and numerous festivals in Norway including two years in a row at Øyafestivalen in Oslo. The band have also been supporting for The Wombats and British Sea Power on tours in the UK and Norway. While awaiting the international release of the bands debut album the winter of 2012, Team Me will keep on touring this fall, and they will also will play their first shows on the European mainland this.Team Me will play more than 50 shows this autumn only, including new support dates for The Wombats, and appearances at festivals such as Reperbahnfestival, Berlin Indiependent Nights and Iceland Airwaves. “Expect big things from Oslo’s Team Me” – NME “Meet your new favorite band” – loveatfirstlistenblog.com “This fabulous sextet from Norway make Magic Numbers-like magic” – Sunday Times “Much admired six-piece from Norway who are beginning to attract a lot of attention – and rightly so – for their complex, majestic pop.” – Q Magazine

GusGus (ICL) - Nordic Music Prize nominee
    Saturday February 18, 2012 12:30am - 1:00am @ Nokia teltet
    It’s a moving story, the tale of GusGus. Founded in the year 1995 by different artists such as Daniel August, DJ Herb Legowitz, cameraman Stephan Stephensen, musician Birgir Pórarinsson, producer Baldur Stefánsson and six more performers, the line-up shifted several times, some left and others joined as time went on. Since 2009, the year they released their album "24/7“, the band has had a stable line-up consisting of president Bongo, Biggi Veira and Daniel August. The three of them recorded the current album called "Arabian Horse“ which was released in May.
    Compared to their quite minimalistic former work, "Arabian Horse“ is by far more "in your face“.

    The songs are packed with gestures, thrilling moments, pop and soul. Doubtlessly GusGus has perfected the breach of the fine line between commercial pop and u-dance music on their 8th studio album. “Arabian Horse“ is a dance-pop album that reminds of the early 90’s house music as well as of the urban soul à la Massive Attack and which still is tangible contemporary. He who has already had the chance of seeing their live shows, knows how much power and feeling the 3 masters can deliver on stage. Now, saddle up your horses and head out to the next live show of the enigma that is GusGus!

These elements afford Andrea Dahle a truly unique sound, pitched somewhere between indie and pure pop.

Mikhael Paskalev (N)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 11:30pm - 12:00am @ Nokia teltet
    Mikhael Paskalev plays pop music with roots in gospel music and alt-country, inspired by artists like Paul Simon, The Shins, Tom Waits, Edward Sharpe and the Everly Brothers. With a band full of charisma and good ideas, the 23 – year-old displays a rare quality. Paskalev’s strength lies in his ability to create melodious tunes, sometimes shamelessly catchy, but always with a wonderful, rusty sound. Besides playing with Jonas Alaska and Billie Van, Paskalev is busy recording his debut album, sue spring 2012. Live Review from Nerve Magazine (UK): Mikhael Paskalev demonstrates what appears to be a signature element of Red Deer Club’s roster, hushed, uncoiling guitars and close harmony singing. Backed by a five-piece band, the majority of his songs are amazingly spare sounding, with the electric guitar mournfully picking its way through the tracks. I Spy proves to be an exception, lurching into a hoe-down midway through complete with Duane Eddy-esque guitar. The second track, a gently murmured lullaby could easily have been heard crackling out of a wireless in an early episode of Mad Men. Touching almost on gospel music at points, Woman evokes glacial US trio Low, its epically slow pace conveying the full weight of the lyrics’ turmoil. The restraint of the musicians is to be praised as any diversions into Guitar Hero style antics would shatter the carefully spun web of Mikhael’s delicate tracks.

Souldrop (N)
    Sunday February 19, 2012 12:30am - 1:00am @ Nokia teltet
    After gaining increasing recognition from the Norwegian music world with their bass heavy, catchy, clubby remixes for the likes of Lars Vaular, Datarock, Razika, Susanne Sundfør, Thomas Eriksen, Gatas Parlament, Fjorden Baby! and many more, Souldrop are now ready to drop their debut E.P. of their own material. The idea to make the leap from remixers to artists in their own right came when Even Brenna, Pål Myran-Håland and Thomas Knudsen realised that the way they created the remixes was not to far off the way they would go about creating original tracks. Why not put a few together and see how it goes? The first track out, “Om Igjen” with vocal contributions from Lars Vaular and Store P went straight in at number one on the iTunes electronic chart and quickly became a DJ favourite. Souldrop decided to take it all a step further and begun to work on a live show. After a full house at the live debut and absolutely smashing it at their second show at Slottsfjell / Kastellnatt, the boys knew they were on to something. On “Prelude E.P.” Souldrop have put together a varied spectrum of guest appearances. From Swedish rap star Adam Tensta, to Norwegian pop hopeful Kinee, the band have clearly experimented somewhat whilst honing what defines Souldrop. Aftenposten described Souldrop’s remix of Gatas Parlament’s track “Jobbe litt mindre og tjene litt mer” as “…a production that Robyn would love” and decreed that “the track deserves to be a hit”. Head of music at NRK P3, Mats Borch Bugge, picked out Souldrop’s Lars Vaular remix as a personal favourite when writing on P3.no: “The remix takes the track’s clubby vibe seriously and and takes it in an out and out dance direction. The build-up and the drop are absolutely phenomenal, and reminds me of the feeling I had at Hyperstate in 1995”.
