Indie-rocks lo-fi king returns to Oslo to play Rockefeller on Sept 22. Mac DeMarco has toured constantly since the release of his debut album in 2012, but that hasn’t stopped him being productive and releasing high quality and critically acclaimed releases along the way. “Salad Days” was NME‘s #2 album of the year for 2014, and in August he released the eagerly awaited mini-album “Another One” on the super-cred Captured Tracks label. Support tonight comes from Dinner.
One of yours truly’s favourite UK bands comes to Oslo to play an intimate concert upstairs at Internasjonalen. The Wave Pictures hail from The Midlands, have been around for over 10 years and have released 9 albums on Moshi Moshi Records showing a staying power few of their indie brethen have managed. Support by Let’s Say We Did from Sweden.
“Sounds like the start of another beautiful friendship.” – NME
“The Wave Pictures are currently conjuring the most gleeful, magnificent pop in town.” – The Guardian
“The Wave Pictures have always cut a more modest path than forebears Hefner and Orange Juice, but Great Big Flamingo’s garage-rock primitivism marks the first time they’ve really glamourized their limitations.” – Pitchfork
“Every track on “Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon” has swagger and self-assertion; listening to this record is a bit like seeing that adorable boy from school six years down the line. And now he’s become a man.” – The Line of the Best Fit
Sebastian Kornelius Gautier Teigen, better known as Coucheron, finally releases his debut EP “Playground” and celebrates with two concerts at Parkteatret : one Yngling with a free age limit and a “grownup” concert later the same night.
Some of the brightest new female talents in Norwegian hiphop/rnb/soul have combined to make music together and this coming Saturday singles shall be released, concerts shall be played, and records will be spun by none other than the Hoetell djs. The line up at Blå includes – KUUK + LOTUS + MIMMI TAMBA + KILDAPHEW + KARIN KVAMME
Aurora Aknes, 18 years old from Bergen, is Norway’s new pop star. Something which a sold out Rockefeller bears testament to. With only one EP, 2014’s “Running With The Wolves“, and smattering of singles so far she’s managed to land a deal with Glassnote Records and DECCA, as well as garnering praise from none other than pop goddess Katy Perry. Blag a ticket if you can for what in the future will be considered an intimate concert.
