Rokilde '08 countdown - 13 days to go

The band schedule is now official! Here it is!

Small - Sunshine Lover

Theese days I can't really stop listening to the Danish electro poppers Small new single "Sunshine Lover"
I've seen the band live a couple of times - and before when they were named Harmony Boys and only performed in pinnk bunny like sport wear - I didn't really cath on. But now, and at the SPOT Festival concert - they really me got me!
Sunshine Lover is an amazing song - simple, pretty, ugly uptempo and low key all at once!

Roskilde '08 Countdown - 14 days to go


I've heard nothing but superlatives from peoples who've seen CocoRosie live. Especially the concert in Vega last year should have been amazing. I'm really looking forward to the concert. I hope that Tez, the amazing french beatboxer will perform with the girls like he did on the last tour.

CocoRosie will play Friday 4th July on the Festival.

From Wikipedia:
"CocoRosie is an American musical duo formed by sisters Sierra Rose Casady ("Rosie") and Bianca Leilani Casady ("Coco") in 2003.

Sierra mainly plays the guitar, piano and harp, and contributes vocals. Bianca sings and manipulates various children's toys/electronic & percussion instruments. CocoRosie performs as a duo and also with other backing musicians on occasion, usually a bassist and either a drummer or beatboxer. They were active for most of 2004, 2005 & 2006 playing dates across the US and making several trips to Europe for tours playing with TV on the Radio, Bright Eyes, Devendra Banhart and others."

Band of horses

Even though I'm far from crazy about the latest Band of horses album, this is one of the concerts I'm really looking forward to on this year's Roskilde Festival. Judged from concert reviews and numerous great youtube live clips, it seems like this bearded band really pulls it off live.

As long as they play a handful of the beautiful tracks from the "Everything all the time" album (Which was one of my absolute favorite albums of 2006) this concert can't really go wrong.

Band of horses will play friday 4th of July.

This former homeless dude from Mississippi plays 30's blues/folk on his old guitars, using a rusty screwdriver to generate the slide effect.

Seasick Steve will play friday the 4th on the festival.

Radiohead - Nude (James Hudson remix)

Radiohead recently held a remix competition, where you should remix "Nude" from their latest album.

This is James Hudson's brilliant version:

Big Ideas (don't get any) from James Houston on Vimeo.

"Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don't get any" I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they're trying their best to do something that they're not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

It doesn't sound great, as it's not supposed to.

I missed the contest deadline, so I'm offering it here for you to enjoy."


The annual SPOT festival in Århus, Denmark was suffering from one of the poorest programs in a long long time. The only two times where I was really happy and really impressed was:

First, In company with Danish singer/songwriter Dennis Mejdal . I bought the album first thing this morning and I really can't get enough of that voice - his melancoly and simple songs. Outstanding! He did a solo gig on the smallest stage in the world - It was fantastic.

Second time with pure happiness was watching the swedish duo Wildbirds And Peacedrums
What can I say - Vocals, drums and the word peacedrums!
confessed - it's arty, It's juicy and it's great!
