The Switzerland, Norway split hypnotic-electro-rock duo Lethe release the LP The First Corpse On The Moon on the 24th of February.
Settle back in a comfortable spot and allow your mind to wander while listening to the title track and sixth of the ten on the approximately fifty six minutes album.
The hypnotic blends of instrumentation and electronics hypnotise the mind as the duo of voices slow down the synapses whilst the listeners limbs ease into a weightless and relaxing catatonic state. Once agility has slowly returned to the physical being, sensory functionality remains pleasingly softened.
Jenny’s Vision Project is the project name of the Norwegian collaborative ethereal synth producer Kristianzhe.

Revealed on the 27th of December was the latest track – We Are Not Alone – featuring Tara Louise, a dreamy three and a half minute song which elegantly saunters its way through the speakers prior to filling the room in becalming clouds of electronic hush, from which an entrancing vocal cradles the cranium in gentle curvatures of melodies.
The Norwegian sardonic-rock quartet Sløtface revealed their latest track Empire Records a few hours ago.
The sarcastic vocalisation of ‘approved betterment’ can’t help but raise a smile as the slippery guitars coil themselves from top-most corners of the room prior to striking venomous bites as bass and percussion chuckle at the ensuing chaos and before you know it – the audience is in equal barb and love-in as the music spins through the ears.
Sløtface are able in Empire Records to deliver a soundtrack of sarcasm which has the listener glancing over their shoulder mouthing – you were joking weren’t you?
Helen Of Troy the alt-folk vehicle for Norway based Helena Belien released the two track single Another Sunshine yesterday.
Helen Of Troy
Those who are of longer stay will also notice than many of the musicians featured who create music with most unashamed emotional connection with their music which reflects in lyric, voice and construct are those well travelled and who also regularly perform on the streets and Helen Of Troy is another such an example.
Born in Belgium of parents with two different nationalities, Helena spent many years in the African Continent as an Engineer, eventually packing it all up and spending time living in the roof top tent of a Land Rover Defender whilst travelling the bush and now splitting her time between South Africa and Norway, this itinerant and prolific musician creates songs which, due in no small part to their sparsity of camouflage, like a white-hot branding iron sear the brain of the listener with their excoriation.
