Erlend Slowly Trickles Back In
Off the Wall Records -- the fantastic label that brough us the Studio -- is involved with a few other groups and musicians, including the Norway-native and Kings of Convenience frontman, Erlend Oye (I will never know how to pronounce that!)
There's been talk of a new Kings of Convenience album, and with the Whitest Boy Alive album and tour bringing about great support for the band and Oye, it looks like the upcomoing LP will be their greatest yet!
But Erlend has been involved with more projects than the above two. He recently released a 7" with Kompis on Off the Wall Records. The A-side, "All Ears" is a fantastic electronic-leaning take on Erlend's ultra-lo-fi aesthetic and style, while "Untitiled," the B-side, is a seductive afterthought.
The single leaves me wanting so much more for the Norweigans, and hopefully they will soon deliver! Until then, listen on ...
