In an age when Rasmus Seebach and Nik & Jay hog the headlines, it is a relief for all that is correct that there are musicians like the Danish pianist and composer Agnes Obel. 

Not nearly as well-known as she should be (many grown-up men would struggle to admit listening to something so sentimentally pure), the Berlin resident is back in the country promoting her second album, Aventine – a darker, more introspective and obsessively detailed album compared to her debut and coup de maitre, Philarmonics. 

Come and decide for yourself.

Ørseund kid Bjørn Ingelstam belongs to a new breed of naturally talented performers who you will be hearing about quite soon if you haven’t already. Prepare for trumpeting genius.

It’s always refreshing to see a band with ties in underground culture permeate the upper echelons of society and gain some respect from the vox populi. Top booking, class act.
