The Whitest Boy Alive Posted by Scott 03/30/08 Some good stuff from Erlend Øye’s other project.I never get tired of hearing him over this sort of stripped down dance-rock.

Love it when the guitar comes into play there. Hmm, ever listened to Kings Of Convenience? They’re always my choice when I need to calm down to some Easy Listening. A bit Simon & Garfunkel-ish, hehe. Great vocal work there as well in my opinion. 2 Scott says: March 30, 2008 at 5:22 pm Joaquim- for sure, koc is cool too, same vocalist = erlend oye…. 3 Ryan Taylor says: March 30, 2008 at 9:33 pm Agreed. Erlend’s stuff is always top notch. Based on the music you always blog about, another band I think you would be very fond of is Royksopp. If you aren’t familiar with them, you should definitely check them out. 4 Scott says: March 30, 2008 at 10:58 pm ryan- yeah. definitely a royksopp fan… that reminds me I should post that video for eple…soooo good. 5 Jon says: March 30, 2008 at 11:08 pm Scott - Check out the Fred Falke remix of Golden Cage on youtube. Amazing french house. 6 Justin Meyers says: March 31, 2008 at 7:42 am The Golden Cage video is a really amazing hand drawn video… I am sure you’ve already checked it out, but if you haven’t it’s worth it. It’s my fav video aside from Smashing Pumpkins “Tonight”. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Y78FztTd414 By the way, thanks for posting about these guys, I can’t seem to quit being made fun of for liking them. 7 Jasper F. Agterbosch says: March 31, 2008 at 9:30 am Very fresh music .. spring is on it’s way here, and The Whitest Boy Alive fits right in. Speaking of Royksopp, I adore the floathing house scenes in ‘ What else is there’ (love the video in general actually). Good quality: http://www.royksopp.com/videos/index.html Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2VxjnpxTR0 8 Joaquim Marquès Nielsen says: March 31, 2008 at 11:12 am Scott –> Yup, same guy I know :) Oh, I really hope you’ll have the chance to check the clip i sent you. I’m sort of stuck in a limbo here, hehe. 9 Alex / HeadUp says: April 1, 2008 at 8:17 am Great track here from Erland, diff sound that Whitest Boy and KoC tho, this is french housey: http://blog.akutoulovesyou.com/2008/02/daft-punk-live-lost-danger.html Talk about a versatile artist… 10 Barry says: April 1, 2008 at 3:04 pm did this just come out in the U.S?someone gave it to me in my local shop at the end of 2006 and i liked it but didnt hear much about it till lately where it seems to be cropping up everywhere. i framed the sleeve nots poster actually, gave it to my brother.looks sweet. 11 yaronimus says: April 11, 2008 at 7:20 am love the music. thanks for sharing.
