Lis er Stille

Up until last Saturday evening I had only heard rumours about a band called Lis er Stille; that they were the opening act at this years Spot-festival, and that David Fricke spoke enthusiastically about the concert and made them his pick of the month in Rolling Stone magazine. And as we all know rumours tend to promise more than they can keep. But not in this case. The really caught the audience in a good vibe and delivered a genuine well-played concert with some mind-lifting, heavenly peaks ("Styrke" being the mindblowing part). Don´t hesitate to listen to their debut record The Construction of the AmpTrain at (all of it), or better: buy it at itunes or at your local record shop (if you can). You will hear music that has a lot of inspiration from bands like Sigur Rós, Death Cab for Cutie, Mew, Múm and the alikes, but still with some originality - and some pent-up aggressiveness.
