I really like this group called "Faun". Reminds me alot of Nordman, kind of that folk/rock sort of music. Next week is Walpurgis night btw (though the pole dancing is reserved for mid sommar, at least here ).

^ Yep, I agree with your comment; I was disappointed that the "teaser" track is the only one with a decent bit of drone. For the rest, it's just acoustic guitar instrumentals all the way. Some nice moody moments though. If I had to describe the album in one adjective beginning with "H", I would say "Haunting".

^ Nice tracks, Lilja. I hope you start posting more often again. There is, for instance, a "Confessions" thread which you might like to use the morning after Walpurgis Night!

Hehe, thanks for the info . Here , most people just go to the bonfires, sing a few songs to welcome the spring, then go home. I think the most dramatic thing that has happened is when someone kicked a football into the fire one year.

Since this is the international music thread, here is a bit of what will be sung tonight. It is actually a fun tradition and you get tuesday off for May 1, so most people are pretty drunk when they get to this part . And then of course, tomorrow is the day when everyone just says what you want to say poltics wise so you have to be pretty drunk to deal with that .

^ Loved the songs, especially the first one. "Music:Prince Gustaf" That is some pedigree for a song!

^ This all sounds about as innocent as the Bonfire Night we have in England on Nov 5, although we do it without singing, in our disspirited English way.

...but here's a piece of music from one of our musically inclined royals:-

At first I thought that was Nigel Farage playing . How dare the DUke of Normandy write in french....although Normandy is in France..but how dare he! And King of England as well..and not speaking English..send him back to Normandy.!(truth be told, our present Queen of Sweden, SIlvia, is German. She used to be made fun of alot because of the way she speaks Swedish..kind of butchers it on occasion. )

Not a bad tune!

^ Yes, in these days of improved PR we sometimes forget what a game of musical chairs European royal families used to play. Your present Queen is a reminder of all the other foreigners who married their way into governing a country whose language they didn't speak.

That is nice! Very calming.

I like street busker performances. I wasn't sure what category this would fit into but it is international and a bit folk, hence the post

^ I really enjoyed the clever message of this song, Lilja! In fact we have a thread for Street Musicians here:- http://www.musicbanter.com/general-m...ns-thread.html

Here's another folk song with a cutting message from the down-at-heel:-



In case it's not clear, "Born in the tatty liftin' time" refers to the potato (tatty) harvests which used to draw itinerent workers to farms, where they'd camp and work at what Americans accurately describe as "stoop labour." ( In the south-east of England, some Londoner's used to leave their homes, take their kids out of school and give them a "holiday" working in the fields! )
