Northern Portrait - Crazy (mp3)

Danish band Northern Portrait is no more than a month old but have already recorded their first song. I guess you have to be a fan of The Smiths to like this song, but I think it is excellent.

Eagle*Seagull - 4 acoustic MP3s

Some of you might remember the video podcast we did with Eli Mardock from Eagle*Seagull back in February. I made an export of the sound and have been listening to it over and over again on my ipod for the last six months.

Today I finally got around to cutting the sound file up in four pieces and I really think that they worth a listen.

Eagle*Seagull - Heal/Feel it (acoustic) (mp3)
Eagle*Seagull - Hello, Never (acoustic) (mp3)
Eagle*Seagull - My Drug Buddy (acoustic / Lemonheads Cover) (mp3)
Eagle*Seagull - Death Could Be At the Door (acoustic) (mp3)

BTW - They have a new album coming out in early 2008 and you can listen to two of the tracks at their MySpace page.

Roskilde Festival 2007 - Day 1

Created with Paul's flickrSLiDR.

Arrived at the festival in pouring rain. Niels was already there eating sushi in the tent. That's the Roskilde Spirit.

We sat in the tent and drank a shit load of long canned beers, before we went to the Arcade Fire concert at the Arena stage. Needless to say, we were really up for it. Thomas wanted to see the Jens Lekman gig instead, but at the end he went with rest of the crew to Arcade Fire.

We went up front, because we wouldn't want to be squashed. Wrong decision. The guards had had too many joints this afternoon. They let way to many people into the "steel cage". It was terrible.

After an hour of waiting Arcade Fire entered the stage. They kicked off the show with "No Cars Go!" The sound was absolutely terrible, and it got even worse in the second song "Black Mirror". After that the sound got better and better, and after a slow mid-set, Arcade Fire ripped off the roof with 6-7 great songs mainly from Funeral. Of cause they finished off with Wake Up. Amazing.

All in all an alright performance, but the terrible sound and the lazy mid-set pulls down.

Arcade Fire - 3 out of 6

After the concert we moved backstage. Free beers in the Tuborg tent and the pouring rain outside, made us stay there for the rest of the night. (Apart from a quick glanse at Bjork on the orange stage, and Mastodon in the Arena - Awfull concerts, both of them)

See you tomorrow
