Pop-up gig med den norske indie – elektronika duoen Lemâitre!

Om bare to timer kjører vi vår fjerde og siste ”pop-up gig” med den norske indie – elektronika duoen Lemâitre! Ketil og Ulrik skaper musikk inspiriret av Justice, Phoneix, Daft Punk og flere. Ep`en ”The friendly sound” kom i slutten av 2010 – og nå jobber de videre for å slippe flere låter. Ketil & Ulrik har også svart på tre kjappe spørsmål om festivaler:

1. Beste festivalminne?
Det var vel Hove i fjor. En av de første festivaljobbene vi gjorde. Vi ble veldig overrasket over at så mange visste hvem vi var og det var sykt gøy å spille og bra publikum. Hadde en lignende opplevelse i år da vi spilte i Frankrike for første gang. Det var også veldig gøy.

2.Hva gjør en festival bra?
En variert line-up med mye elektronica, hip hop og rock, kult sted og fint vær. Synes det er klart morsomst med festivaler der man camper og hvor mesteparten av publikum faktisk bor på festivalen. Blir litt villere stemning

3.Drømmeopptreden på en festival?
Daft Punk definitivt. Hadde vært fett på en stor festivalscene. Men hadde flydd hvor som helst for å se dem live.

Kom i rett festivalstemning og lytt til Lemâitres spilleliste på Spotify! Vi ses kl 14.00 på Flekken!

June Beats presented by @thursplay


Our friends at @thursplay have compiled this playlist for June.

To open this June Beats playlist, “Reptile” by Citizens! who come up with an album full of goodies, called “Here we are” and yes: here they are! Start with this track and make sure to not miss on their whole album.

It’s been a month full of new releases: Grizzly Bear with their single “Sleeping Ute”, Cat Power with her amazing new song “Ruin”, Fiona Apple with her new album called “Every Single Night” and the single by same name. What did you think?

Swedish indie folk band called Cryind Day Care Choir granted a spot in the playlist with their great “Where did John Lennon go?” song, that makes you wanna sit around a bonfire with your friends on a warm Summer night. Just a raw chill/feel good experience.

A favorite from Keane’s latest album “Strangeland”, “Run with me”, bringing back the memory of why everybody got stuck on Keane’s songs in the first place: the right mix of sweet vocal and soft melody.

Now beware; play-on-repeat alert:

Norwegian singer Mr. Little Jeans with her very catchy “Runaway”; Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna, who’s been touring in US playing songs of her amazing self-entitled album “Yuna”, will get you lost on her beautiful voice with her “Fading Flower” song.

Find your indie dose with songs by Forestears, Frankie Rose, Nelson Can, Palpitation, Faye, Beach House, Andrew Bird and Urban Cone.

What did you listen to on repeat this June? Share with us today on #thursplay.

Enjoy it!
