The first Röyksopp album Melody A.M. is a great album and got a lot of attention around the time it was released, but unfortunately it was kind of downhill for them after that. The follow-up album The Understanding veers to close to mainstream dance-pop for my tastes and what I've heard from their more recent stuff hasn't really impressed me.

You might recognise this little tune:

Hey, I'm from Norway myself!

Lately, I've been listening a bit to Susanne Sundfør:

Susanne Sundfør - Among Us - YouTube

I think it's great. Her voice gets a little exhausting after a while, though.

Great, another Norwegian Hope you stick around!

I too like Susanne Sundfør quite a lot. At least I liked The Brothel. I haven't heard The Silicone Veil in its entirety yet. I have to admit, though, that like you, I also get a bit tired of the sound of her voice after a little while!

Yeah, I'm visiting the forums pretty often, though I haven't posted that much. But I'll stick around

I haven't listened to The Brothel, but The Silicone Veil is a pretty strong album all the way through. I recommend it!

Ane Brun is also a pretty good Norwegian artist, though I haven't listened too much to her yet.

Ah, I don't really know any Norwegian artists. I'd really like listening to some. It seems interesting. I'll probably sift through it at some point.

As someone who regularly listens to jazz and ambient music, Jan Garbarek is of course known to me

Perhaps I could mention something too? I've been listening to a lot of romantic music the last couple of weeks and so for the sake of diversity, I could mention Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg who is quite famous. I expect everyone with a bit of interest in classical music probably has heard of him. He is most famous for his music for the play Peer Gynth. Here's one of my favourites



Normally it has sung lyrics, but this version was nice as well.
