Norway eh! Home to Kaospilot. And dudes with beards. And really tall guys. And some crazy mythology that they based a bizarre ZX Spectrum computer game on. And Beezewax. I think Funguson listened to Beezewax or the same bands that Beezewax listen to, because they are pretty similar. They are jangly and pleasant indie rock that is nicely paced, but perhaps lacking in the catchy melody department. I enjoy the buzzing guitars and the bassline that accelerates the song along in a kind of Promise Ring type fashion, but it is just missing the special element to really make it exceptional. Still, it's quite fun and I enjoyed giving it a spin for sure.

Anders :: Plywood (huh?) give me the side B action, and they are kind of straight forward rock music with a chorus that sounds like the Foo Fighters, and the rest of it has a sort of darker sound. I'm afraid this didn't do anything for me at all. Not to worry.
