Susannas first solo album since 2012, “Triangle” is described as soul music for lost souls; an examination of her relationship with faith, spirituality and superstition. Pitchfork claimed: “She’s the commander of it all, powerful enough to hold the noise at bay simply by asserting her own existence.” See her at Mono this Wednesday, and give her latest single Burning Sea a listen!
Tape to Zero is a small festival focusing on music within the genres of electronica, ambient and new jazz. The festival lasts for two days, and contains both electronic and acoustic sounds. Peter Badens opening act has the intention of just playing around with some drums. Sounds about right! Drums meet trumpet and live electronics when Thomas Strønen and Hilde Marie Holsen pair up later in the evening. The last concert of the night consists of the trio Maja Ratkje, Øyvind Brantsegg and Siv Øyunn Kjenstad: Brak Rug plays improvised acoustical music that is electronically processed on stage. Ohh and that’s not all…also on the bill are…Kjetil Husebø, Arve Henriksen, Tim Exile…the latter 2 being the Friday night and whole festival headliners no less!! For the full line up and more information, check out HERE.

Bendik releases her third album Fortid. Still exploring the world of fragile lyrics and rich sound, her choice to play at Kulturkirken Jakob fits her stage presence and the album theme perfectly: “Feelings of safety, closeness and love are essential to a church space, and to this album”, says Silje Halstensen. It is going to be a very special night!
