Off to Tallinn (almost)...

Only a week and half has gone since I returned from the trip to Warsaw and it’s already time to board the next flight. So tomorrow I’ll be heading for the Estonian capital Tallinn, where I am going to spend 4 days with 7 of my very thirsty friends. Surprisingly (to some I suspect) plans do include other things beside drinking and among things I’m especially looking forward to visiting the Danish King’s Garden, where in 1219 our national flag was handed to the Danes by none other than God (at least according to the legend). This will be my first visit, so I don’t know all that much about the city, but the picture could make one believe that this both a beautiful and quite historical place?

Danish blog Frekvens seems rejuvenated as posts have started floating in a steady stream. Guess it’s about time that I start contributing as well and produce one of those “støj-på-frekvensen” posts?

In late October last year I fell completely in love with the self-titled debut EP by San Francisco 8-piece Photons, so obviously I was happy to receive the great news that time has now come for a follow-up. So next month the band will release their brand new 4-tracks EP named Glory, and the greatest news probably is that there isn’t that much new to tell at all, as the tracks on Glory are just as beautiful, catchy and easy to love, as those on the debut EP. Bring it on!

Blog favorites A Classic Education are just about to release the limited edition (300 copies) 7” single Best Regards/Rest on UK label Bailiwick Records. It will be out April 27 and the release will include download codes for the two tracks. Both tracks can be streamed at the label’s Myspace page (I’m no permitted to upload anything) and need I really state the obvious that this is excellent stuff?

Danish blog l’amour existe has posted a few photos from the Northern Portrait/The Electric Pop Group concert in Hamburg this past weekend. Those snapshots combined with a very positive review mailed to me by Peter (who was there as well – you lucky bastard), makes me really, really sad that I couldn’t go and more than ever makes me want to go to London next month!

Finally; here’s the new video for the track Snookerstar by The Holiday Show.

I liked Tallinn; the old town is really pretty, although it might differ quite a lot from the areas where most people live...

Look out for records by Dallas and Pia Fraus!

Yes, the EPG/Northern Portrait-boattrip was really great. :-) And we had fabulous weather as well...
