Das Body - Peregrine

Hailing from the blue collar east side of Oslo, Das Body channels their environment in crafting gritty but colorful electro pop. Musically, they are energetic, lyrically and thematically they are sassy and direct. The quartet is led by the versatile vocals of striking frontwoman Ellie Linden, whose talents are backed by dynamic guitar/synth/percussion arrangements. We find that we reach for this album most often in the evening hours as it prompts us to dream of the days when we can attend live shows again. Das Body definitely is on our wish list.

Peregrine is out now via Das Body Records.



"Nap Gate" by Wurld Series


Needing a solid distraction from the political mess that is the world's latest Banana Republic, the United States of America, we turned to the fuzzing, buzzing, psychedelic goodness of "Nap Gate" by Christchurch, New Zealand's Wurld Series. And while it is available now as a single, it is taken from What's Growing, the band's second album. It is an appealingly noisy nugget that promises good things from the album.

Wurld Series founded by transplanted Brit Luke Towart, and Luke and drummer/producer Brian Feary recorded What's Growing with like minded friends participating as available. The album will be released March 19 via Meritorio Records (Europe/USA), Osborne Again (Australia) and Melted Ice Cream (New Zealand/Rest of the world).
