OhLand @ Paradise - 9/26

9/24/2010 02:17:00 AM
I try my best to keep up with the music scene as a whole but there's so much out there, so I'm always appreciative when I get emails about artists that I've never heard before.  And Bloggery rep dwillens also does a pretty good job of keeping me up to date when he sends me stuff.  That being said, I got an email about artist OhLand who's going to be performing this weekend at Paradise and her stuff is pretty good.

On Sunday September 26th, Oh Land will be playing with Mates of State at Paradise.

Oh Land is a peculiar new cinematic electropop Dane who recently moved to Brooklyn, NY. With an opera singer for a mother, a theater organist for a father, and Bjork's Homogenic on constant rotation, Oh Land was was enraptured by the combination of experimental and classical arts. She spent her younger days pirouetting as a ballet dancer at the Danish Royal Ballet Academy when an injury forced her to reinvent herself and discover her true talent and passion as a musician.

Her soundscapes are lavish, crunchy, symphonic, brute and captivated with rhythms that fly apart (RIYL Robyn, Lykke Li, Bjork, La Roux). She translates the sounds live via her "contraption" - a homemade one-woman-band music box topped with balloon video projections (seeing is believing).

Interesting stuff.  I listened to some of her music that's available online and it sounds very loungey.  I like it.
