Heard of these guys?

The uber-talented and plenty likable Kings of Convenience finally put out another album, titling it Declaration of Dependence. As expected, it's incredibly easy on the ears and, if there's one thing I can say about their music, it's that you only need to hear a song to end up wanting to hear more. Talk about your chain reactions. Anyway, go ahead and watch all the songs here, especially that last one, a cover of Lesley Gore's "It's My Party." I happened to grow up with that 45 record, thanks to my mom's record collection. Highlight? Trumpet solo.

What I've heard from Declaration is amazing, and I'll definitely be picking it up as soon as I can. Erlend and Eirik provide such a beautiful soundtrack to the haunting (inner & outer) transformation of autumn. Thanks for the post, Dainon.

Oops. Note to self, preview comment before posting. Thanks for letting it slide, dainon. See? Overcame the dyslexia this time...let's just pretend I had a wonky accent that time, eh? Eh? Oh, never mind.
