Take a listen.

Engineers

I know hardly anything about this band. Probably the most underrated band, ever. Currently, they have 5,800 listeners on Spotify. That really isn’t much. Seven albums under their belt. Do not sleep on ANY of them.

 

 

 

Nina Kinert (aka Nina K)

 

Mmmm…… Scandinavia. Always. The magic they create. Why couldn’t I have been born in Norway or Sweden? I mean shit, I am mostly of Scandinavian ancestry (Denmark, mostly), but…. ugh. I just wish I wasn’t American, sometimes. This music created by Scandinavian artists always resonates through my soul. I listened to Nina Kinert non-stop on the weekend of August 27th and 28th. Superb.

 

Antenne

It is glaringly obvious that I listen to music that basically no one likes, or understands. Case in point, Antenne (from Denmark). Several members are also from the band Amstrong (that’s AM, not Arm), a band I will write about in the future (Antenne has released the same amount of full-length albums, as Amstrong). Although I love both bands, I love Antenne’s simplicity and minimalist/quieter approach. They are completely depressing, ambient, and music to slash your wrists by (this is a good thing).

 

Here’s the first song I ever heard by them… and following, is a YouTube playlist of their songs.

 

 

http://antenne.bandcamp.com – I have NO IDEA if this is their official bandcamp, as their albums are $1,000 each. I don’t think they’ll be selling many copies, if this is true…
