In my post on Anamia yesterday, I mentioned Traening as one of the inspirational sources for the band's songwriter. When he mentioned the band I couldn't remember ever hearing of them, but when I scanned my computer I realized that a long time ago I had downloaded 4 songs, by this now dissolved Danish band. For whatever reason I hadn't bothered listening to the songs, but now I (finally) have and this is truly great stuff. This is probably very typical me that I don't discover a band until it no longer exists or someone tell me that I definitely need to check them out.
One of the members of Traening is now in the more well-known EPO-555 and musically the bands are related, as they both play a kind of alternative electro noise pop. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you like EPO-555 there is a good chance that you'll like Traening as well!
+ Only You
Both songs are from the 2003 album Better Than This.
After listening to it 20 times (at least) yesterday there is no longer any doubt in my mind. Map Of The Problematique by Muse is the best song of 2006 so far!
I emailed Mymusic yesterday suggesting that (some of) the pages should be translated into English, because foreigners have no clue how to register (thus being allowed to download the songs). Today I received a reply saying that they are thinking of it. Stop thinking! Just do it!
There has been lots of complaints about the new The Stills album in the blogosphere and today Danish magazine Gaffa gave the album 1 out of 6 stars.
