New Music: The Products

Don’t play this video if you’ve just had your dinner!

This is filthy but I love it and it’s sure to go viral quicker than you can say ‘gonorrhea’. It’s by Norwegian duo ‘The Products’. Check out here.

We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader. All you need to do is email with ‘Dry The River’ on the subject line, and we’ll pick a winner on Thursday 12th April 2012 and contact you.

Otherwise, tickets are available at £5 from the Garage’s website.

New Music: Margaret Berger

This is very classy pop from Norway. It won’t be a hit on the radio without a big remix but it’s worth listening to. Check out here.

Free Download: Team Me ‘Show Me’

I mentioned this track a couple of weeks ago and it’s one of my fave tracks from the month. Now Team Me have gone and given it as a free download- woo!

MP3: Team Me – Show Me

First Watch: Team Me ‘Show Me’

My favourite Norwegian indie band have debuted a new music video and it’s as cute as the track. So wonderfully uplifting and anthemic.

Free Download: Team Me ‘With My Hands Covering Both of My Eyes I Am Too Scared To Have a Look At You Now’

That really is the title to this free download from Norway’s ‘Team Me‘. I must admit this took me a couple of listens to get in to but I would describe it as indie pop with a breezy vibe that you get out of these Scandinavian bands. Sounds sort of magical in a weird, indescribable way.

New Music: Lemâitre

I see this as the new Röyksopp. Sweetly addictive Norwegian electropop. Check out here

New Music: Bernhoft

Bernhoft is one of those ‘one-man-band’ types from Oslo who’s able to sound a whole song using his voice. It’s nothing short of amazing when I hear stuff like this. Check out here.

New Music: Frost

Norwegian duo Frost make cool synth-pop with analogue warmth, and songs about life, love and changing the world.  ‘The Woods’ is released on October 17th via FrostWorld Recordings. Check out here.

New Music: HandS

This Norwegian pop duo have made a massive splash on the web with this track. It’s like a mix of all the sounds that made Scandinavian music so huge across the world. Absolutely love love love this. Check out here.

New Music: Eric Ness

I think this will be love or hate, but it’s definitely a grower if you give it a chance- the video is really bizarre but I guess it compliments Norwegian Eric Ness’ ragged, jazzy, big-band vibe with a bit of pop on the side. Check out here.

First Listen: Blackroom ‘Control’

I mentioned this Norwegian group some time ago and this is their new single. I don’t think you can find any flaws in this perfect piece or electropop with a big throwback to trip hop.

Free Download: Ten tracks by Ungdomskulen

Norwegian trio Ungdomskulen are back with ten free tracks – part of a new campaign they’re calling GIMME TEN, the band are releasing 10 one-minute tracks for free, every Monday and Friday, until June 3rd.
