You may be curious as to what Futuristic Retro Rock actually is, and, if you are, then the answer will be revealed on the 2nd March 2018 when Karisma Records releases “Limbohead”, the second full length album from Norway’s DOBBELTGJENGER.

Long-time fans of the band will, of course, know that DOBBELTGJENGER play music that is eclectic, and that they are all about bringing back the groove and the fun to genres that sometimes take themselves a tad too seriously.  That’s not to say that DOBBELTGJENGER should not be taken seriously.  Far from it.  The lyrics of their new album tell tales of deep-rooted neuroticism, a sort of colourful depiction of an anxious reality, where doors are locked, in order to shut out the dangerous conspiracies of the world.  But they do so using  contagious grooves, a futuristic guitar sound,  and soulful rock vocals that alternate between vulnerable falsettos, punkish screams and rhythmic narratives.

Formed in Bergen in 2015,  DOBBELTGJENGER field an experienced and skilled  lineup  of musicians that include Sondre Veland (MAJOR PARKINSON,  OSSICLES) on drums, Jakob Sønnesyn (DEPRESNO,  9 GRADER NORD) on bass, Vegard Wikne (OCEAN OF LOTION) on guitars and vocals, and Knut Martin Rasmussen Langeland on guitar.   With inspiration drawn from everything from astronauts lost in space to old video games,  DOBBELTGJENGER’s debut album “When I’ve Gone to Space” was released in late 2016, and was heavily influenced by progressive rock and elements of jazz and psychedelia.

With “Limbohead”, however, DOBBELTGJENGER have moved away from a solely psychedelic expression and have shifted towards a more varied sound, to produce, what  the band describe as a “punk-inspired, and more hands-on,  record” which also makes good use of explosive stoner riffs and electric slide-guitars.  They cite, as their inspiration,  new genres in their already progressive and rock-driven expression.  Amongst them 80’s Post Punk (TALKING HEADS, JOY DIVISION) and 90’s Stoner, Boogie and Grunge Rock (ZZ-Top, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, JEFF BUCKLEY)

With artwork by Kristine Malde Lende, tracklisting for “Limbohead” is as follows:

  1. Tin Foil Hat
  2. Calling Tokyo
  3. Like Monroe
  4. Locking My Doors
  5. Swing
  6. In Limbo
  7. Keep’em Coming
  8. Radio
  9. Mangrove

A video for the title track from DOBBELTGJENGER’s debut album “When I’ve Gone to Space”,  which frontman  Wikne describes as being “A lonely journey into space – about diving into oneself and into the vast and strange “space” where lost astronauts in search of inner peace meet”, can be seen below and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcHqvfhblh0

Himmellegeme PR1

With their debut full-length album “Myth of Earth”, having hit the streets on Karisma Records just over a month ago, Psychedelic Rockers HIMMELLEGEME have released a video of the opening track “Natteravn”.  The video, by the Oslo-based cinematographer  Leander Håvik, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/JVyIGFFbPQs


A
Harnessing influences from both Blues and Atmospheric Prog Rock, HIMMELLEGEME have produced an incredibly mature debut album with an otherworldliness to it that makes “Myth of Earth” timeless.   The band’s use of heavy riffs, combined with chilling melodies and melancholic lyrics, creates a haunting atmosphere that permeates an album which depicts past events, not only in the lives of the band members themselves, but also in the lives of others

Himmelgemme PR2

HIMMELLEMEME’s lineup of Aleksander Vormestrand on guitars and vocals, Hein Alexander Olson on lead guitar, Lauritz Isaksen on keyboards, Erik Alfredsen on bass, and Thord Nordli on drums, spent the past year exploring new sounds and putting the finishing touches to their new material, which was recorded during the fall and winter of 2016 at the Broen Studios in Bergen, and produced by Anders Bjelland (ELECTRIC EYE / HYPERTEXT).

With artwork by Mina Nornes Westli, “Myth of Earth” is available in CD Digipak, Vinyl and Digital formats.   Tracklisting for “Myth of Earth is as follows:

1. Natteravn
2. Hjertedød
3. Myth of Earth
4. Breath in the air like it’s fire
5. Kyss mine blodige hender
6. Fish
7. Fallvind

HIMMELLEGEME are set to appear at the Close to the Rain Bergen Prog Fest – Christmas Edition along with fellow Karisma Records label-mates WOBBLER on the 16th December at The Garage in Bergen.

Tusmorke PR4

When a band releases an album filled with fairy tale characters and a generous helping of magic in its  storyline, it’s reasonable to suppose that there will be enough material for a video, and,  indeed, for the latest single taken from their new album “Bydyra”, TUSMØRKE have treated us to one such video.

The single,  “Lær de fattige å trylle” (Teach Magic to the Poor), is just one of the fifteen tracks on “Bydyra”, an album that consists of two original mini musicals, written specifically for a local children’s school in Oslo, with those same children also taking part.

Whilst “Bydyra”, which translated means “Urban Wildlife”,  is aimed at children, it is, nevertheless, appealing to adults as well, with its  lyrical and musical exploration of relatively “grown up” themes such as  urban wildlife, the skyrocketing prices of housing in Oslo, the financial crisis, social issues, global warming, and good and bad magic.

And this duality of appeal is perfectly illustrated in the subject matter of the track, “Lær de fattige å trylle”,  and its humorous accompanying video,  resonating clearly in a society where people are constantly encouraged to increase their spending by increasing their debt.  As TUSMØRKE explain:

“Teaching magic to the poor is a cunning plot initiated by the dark lords of the spheres of finance. By employing the black arts of modern alchemy, even the destitute can become eager consumers, on credit. Thus, the basest elements of the population are turned into gold, as debt slaves to the banks. Never trust a sorcerer who wears a suit and not a robe.”

The video for “Lær de fattige å trylle” by Aleksander U. Serigstad / Mondo Cane,  can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/CFASvsogk4s

When Norwgian Prog Folk Rockers TUSMØRKE announced that their fifth full-length album “Bydyra” would consist of  two original mini musicals that were written specifically for a local children’s school in Oslo, and that children from the school would be taking part on the album, it certainly piqued the interest not only of the prog community, but  also from music fans in general, who were interested in seeing what the result would be.

Having already released one single from the album, TUSMØRKE are giving fans and interested parties another glimpse into “Bydyra”  with the release of the the track titled “Rottekongen” (The Rat King).  According to the band:  “When the Rat King isn’t devouring books in the library (literally), he roams about with his street gang, pestering strangers to make them feel unwelcome. These animals are pests, not pets”

“Rottekongen” is available from the following:

Wobbler PR2

With their new album “From Silence to Somewhere” set for release on Karisma Records the 20th October, Norwegian Symphonic Proggers WOBBER have released a new promo video  comprising excerpts from all  the tracks featured on the album.  The video, by W. S. Prestmo, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/8oSoXeftEvw


A
The four-track release  comes in with a running time of 47 minutes, and, as  Andreas Wettergreen Strømman Prestmo (Vocals and Guitars) says, the band is excited to give fans a glimpse into  what they can expect from the new album, which has taken WOBBLER  in the region of four to five years to complete.  The band admits that they took their time in order to achieve what they consider to be their best album to date, and which sees a more introspective WOBBLER exploring darker themes.

Having said that, “From Silence to Somewhere” nevertheless feels  like a natural progression from the band’s previous release.  Flamenco and Italian Renaissance music can be heard weaving their way subtly through the melancholy harmonies that are combined with powerful crescendos and high-energy, spinet-driven passages, whilst the guitar riffs range from the poignant to the edgy.

Fans of WOBBLER’s trademark sound have nothing to worry about though, with the band making good use of Mellotron, Moog, Hammond, Chamberlin and other classical analogue keyboards, and of course the renowned Rickenbacker Bass.

With artwork by Thomas Kaldhol (Samuel Jackson 5, Panzerpappa, Lukas Kasha etc), “From Silence to Somewhere” will be available in either CD Digipak or Jewel Case formats, each with a 12 page booklet, as well as in  Digital format.  LPs will be available in both standard black or in a limited edition Transparent orange/black marble vinyl limited to 500 copies only.  Tracklisting on “From Silence to Somewhere” is as follows:

1. From Silence to Somewhere
2. Rendered in Shades of Green
3. Fermented Hours
4. Foxlight

Wobbler AlbumArt PR

Formed in Hønefoss in 1999, WOBBLER’s current lineup features current and former members of TUSMØRKE, WHITE WILLOW, THE CHRONICLES OF FATHER ROBIN and JAGA JAZZIST.  With Lars Fredrik Frøislie on keyboards and backing vocals, Kristian Karl Hultgren on  bass, bass clarinet and bass pedals, Martin Nordrum Kneppen on drums, percussion and recorder,  Andreas Wettergreen Strømman Prestmo on vocals, guitar, glockenspiel and percussion, and Geir Marius Bergom Halleland on lead guitar and backing vocals.  the band can avail itself of a considerable  array of instruments that  have a huge, and very interesting impact,  on the overall sound.

More information about WOBBLER can be found on the band’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/wobblerofficial

CD and vinyl formats are now available to pre-order from smarturl.it/Wobbler_Europe, or from smarturl.it/Wobbler_USA in the USA.  All formats, including digital, can also be pre-ordered at https://wobbler.bandcamp.com/album/from-silence-to-somewhere

WOBBLER’s previous promo video for “From Silence to Somewhere”, which gives a fascinating insight  into the workings of a group of people  who, as they have matured and grown together as individuals and as musicians, have quite considerably changed the way they write and make their music, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/sqrqPG7MZwk

With TUSMØRKE fans (and their children) eagerly awaiting the November 10th release of “Bydyra” , the band’s fifth full-length album, Karisma Records have debuted a track from the album. Titled  “Trefar” the track can be heard at http://tusm-rke.bandcamp.com/album/bydyra


A
As some will already know, with “Bydyra” the Prog Folk Rockers have come up with something quite different, because this album has not only been written for children, there are also children performing on it.  The title, which means “Urban Wildlife” gives an idea of the subject matter, which details the enchanting adventures of magical creatures that include a crow, a badger and a squirrel.

Tusmorke PR4

According to the band, the debut track is about the Trefar, or Tree Father,  who  “knows all that goes on in the forest. Where his knowledge dries out, the City Animals must seek out the Library to consult the letters printed on his pulped, dried and flattened children.”

Whilst it is true that “Bydyra”  is aimed at children, TUSMØRKE have used their unique take on Prog Rock, seasoned it with humour, and produced an album that will also appeal to adults in its exploration of “grown up” subjects such as urban wildlife, the skyrocketing prices of housing in Oslo, the financial crisis, social issues, global warming, and good and bad magic.

Composed of two original mini musicals that were written specifically for a local children’s school in Oslo “Bydyra”  contains fifteen tracks and includes artwork especially commissioned from the legendary Norwegian artist Thore Hansen. Tracklisting for “Bydyra”  is as follows:

01. Tre som bor i et Tre (Three who live in a Tree)
02. Trefar (Three Father)
03. Mellomspill (Interlude)
04. Rottekongen (The Rat King)
05. På Biblioteket (At the Library)
06. Vi er eid (We are owned)
07. Dyrene i Byen (The Animals in the City)
08. Elvene i Oslo (The Rivers of Oslo)
09. Signekjerringa (The Sibyl)
10. Tenkeren (The Thinker)
11. Trollmannen (The Enchanter)
12. Lær de fattige å trylle (Teach Magic to the Poor)
13. Dyrene bor ute (Animals Live Outside)
14. Underboerne (The Underdwellers)
15. Katabasis

Featuring members of WOBBLER, JORDSJØ and ALWANZATAR,  TUSMØRKE’s lineup fields an almost dizzying variety of instruments,  and is comprised of  Benediktator on vocals, bass, acoustic guitars, Glockenspiel, jaw harp, assorted percussion and loads of handclaps, Krizla on vocals, flute and electronics, HlewagastiR on drums and percussion, Dauinghorn av Jordsjø  on electric guitar, and The Phenomenon Marxo Solina  on Steinway & Sons grand piano, MiniMoog model D, Solina Strings Ensemble, Mellotron M400, SCI Prophet-5, Arp Axxe, Arp Pro Soloist and Lindholm Spinet.

Major Parkinson PR

While fans of cult prog rockers MAJOR PARKINSON await the 27th October release of the band’s new full length album Blackbox,  they can content themselves with the track Madeleine Crumbles, the second single to be released from the album.  Karisma Records is releasing Madeleine Crumbles in all territories except for Norway, where the band is handling the release themselves.  The single can be found at the following:

TIDAL / WiMP http://listen.tidalhifi.com/album/78681454
iTunes / Apple Music https://itunes.apple.com/album/-/id1282666065

With Madeleine Crumbles  the outlandish Norwegians treat their listeners to a five minute pop journey that is at times playful, and at times nostalgic.  The song, which features Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift), and a host of guest musicians, shows a densely orchestrated side of MAJOR PARKINSON rarely seen before, and the band had this to say of the track:

“Madeleine Crumbles may function as a soft introduction into the darkness of our Blackbox – A snappy, dancy and orchestral tune that sets a new personal record in guest musicians. Unlike most of our songs, this one was basically written within one single day by Jon Ivar and Lars, which says something about the immediate nature of these melodies.”

Blackbox will be the fourth studio album from the cult prog phenomenon that is MAJOR PARKINSON,  and will be available on Degaton Records in Norway and on Karisma Records in the rest of the world.  Aside from the previously mentioned Linn Frøkedal, who, in fact, makes a guest appearance on four tracks in total, Blackbox also features several other guest artists who, together, add their unique talents to the overall sound of the album, which the band spent the better part of two years creating.

Filled with frenetic horn sections, angelic strings, rusty hammers, paper planes and rocket ships, and under  the guidance of sound maestro Yngve Leidulv Sætre, MAJOR PARKINSON’s lineup of Jon Ivar Kollbotn, Eivind Gammersvik, Lars C Bjørknes, Sondre Veland, Sondre Skollevoll, Øysten Bech-Eriksen and Claudia Cox,  have come up with an uncompromising work, somewhere at the crossroads between progressive rock, cinematic pop, heavy industry and icy Arctic electronics.

With artwork by Martin Kvamme, tracklisting on Blackbox is as follows:

  1. Lover, Lower Me Down!
  2. Night Hitcher
  3. Before the Helmets
  4. Isabel – A Report to an Academy
  5. Scenes from Edison’s Black Maria
  6. Madeleine Crumbles
  7. Baseball
  8. Strawberry Suicide
  9. Blackbox
