The Holidays Are Saved!

… at least concerning music! Today, a whole bunch of CDs that I’ve ordered about 3 months ago, arrived savely at my place. Some of them weren’t easy to get, but if you leave your orders with Kalle from, you can be assured that you will have all of them in the end. So here’s the news:

Lano Places – Walk Again

Finally, the second CD by Norwegian band Lano Places is mine! And it sounds excellent! I think this is one of the most beautiful pop voices in music ever, and those great songs fit perfectly. I’ve only listened to it once, and I already love it! Great stuff!!!

Lano Places – Everyone Likes To Be Lonely

I’ve already written about this album a few weeks ago (I’ve already had it in my collection for a few days…), and I still like it very much. This really was an excellent discovery in 2005; unfortunately it doesn’t look like there will be more from this band. Pity… 😦

Sambassadeur – Sambassadeur

We stay up in Scandinavia, but visit Sweden now. Here’s the debut album by Sambassadeur; I’m listening to it right now, and my first impression is very good. Lush, relaxing pop songs with a fine female voice (and sometimes a fine male voice, too!) make for a real listening pleasure. Yes, that was a good choice!

Belasco – Knowing Everyone’s OK

This is the second album from this band in my collection. Can’t say much about the songs on this one as I haven’t heard them. I liked the ones from the other album enough to make me buy some more, so I’m really curious to hear what they sound like on this one!

Trembling Blue Stars – The Seven Autumn Flowers

Formerly known as the Field Mice, this band was brought to me by Peter of Coast Is Clear. After downloading some songs and really liking them, I thought it would do no harm to have some of their works in my collection. I’m really looking forward to discovering the songs of this band!

Trembling Blue Stars – A Certain Evening Light

Uncollected Recordings 1996 – 2002 is what it says on the sleeve. Looks like I’m gonna learn a bit about the band’s past work as well. Very good! 🙂

Not from Kalle, but from the US of A, I’ve also received this one today:

The Picture – Connect

I found two of their songs on a blog a few months ago, and during that time, those two really stuck with me. So when I learned that there’s an album out from this New York band, I knew I had to have it! I really like their indie-rock-tunes, and I can’t wait to hear what else they’ll pull out of their sleeves. You’ll probably read a bit more about them soon!
