You still don’t know what to do in week 37? Check out our recommendations!
Week 37 holds some quite good concerts, and this time it’s Radar who get’s most of the attention. With three out of four of our recommendations coming from this lovely venue, it’s definitely the place to be this coming week.
Our first recommendation is this Wednesday with british drama-pop duo The Revival Hour at Radar. After their release of the debut album ‘Scorpio Little Devil’, The Guardian named them ’band of the day’, even though they had a bit trouble figuring out what genre this really is. Folk? Electronica? Pop? Who cares, it’s good! Their song Hold Back is featured on our Spotify-playlist ‘Heat vol. 2’
Thursday evening it’s time for a concert we’ve really been looking forward to! Steffen Westmark enters the stage at Radar with his new solo-album ‘Deserter’, an album we gave 5/5 stars here at SOA, and where our writer Bobby McBride wrote the following:
“Solo albums can be a tricky business for some artists. Coming out of a popular and established rock group (The Blue Van in this case) to record under a different guise or constellation can often be perceived as “trouble on the home front” or “you guys are holding me back”, and can result in a confused mix bag of genres and purposeful sea change in musical styles. Whatever. Forget what you were thinking about and brace yourself for one of the best albums I have ever heard to come out of Denmark.”
And then it’s time to leave Radar for a while, and instead visit Train for one h*** of a Balkan-party this Friday! One of our absolute favourites, Tako Lako, will be supporting the german Disco-Partizan Shantel who is here to deliver one of his legendary DJ sets, guaranteed to get your friday party-mode started.
And it’s back to Radar! Saturday it’s time for some Reggae/Folk/Pop from the Danish band Fastpoholmen. The two cousins Adam and Dawn Fastpoholmen, who founded the band, used to live in Sweden, and the strong connections to this country made it easier for Adam to write songs in Swedish. With concerts at SPOT and Roskilde Festivals, and concerts at most of the bigger venues in DK, they will now be bringing their 8-piece band to Radar!
If you feel like we missed something, or if our taste in music is just horrible, feel free to tell us where you’re going this week!
