Best @ Øyafestivalen 2012 day4

      This is our third CB concert this summer… all 3 have been GREAT. I would have preferred Vika @ 21:00.. but he nailed it at the Enga stage in the sunlight as well. His “Soul scream” was in perfect shape… setlist was pretty much built around “No Time For Dreamin” & Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold”. Lot of Love, Heart, Compassion… and wonderful southern soul groove. What a good band he has with him on this tour!Hugs were available after the concert.. and this time we grabbed the opportunity.
      Best songs: Why is it so Hard,  No Time for Dreaming & Golden Rule.
      The BEST concert at Øyafestivalen 2012.
      Klara & Johanna Söderberg sang their wonderful harmonies in the sunshine…. and everyone (at least as far as I could observe) smiled & sang back.. Lovely Americana with some great songs (Emmylou & The Lion’s Roar). I also really liked the Fever Ray cover, When I Grow Up (Hallgeir).

First Aid Kit:

    In spite of their name they are from Norway and they are good! Strong songs and their own style, not “just another indie band”. Looking forward to follow them.


    Nice concert. TWOD (silly name btw) plays their dreamy, guitar based Americana indie. Adam Granduciel is more of a songwriter & guitar player.. than a great singer in my book (Egil). The Highlight of their concert was Come to the City. They drew a fairly large audience and it was a pleasant early afternoon concert.
    I really liked his sweet songs and it was a good start of the last day at the Oyafestival.
    I like Best Coast but this was not a very good concert for them, not bad, but a bit bland, it looked like the band didn’t care and it rubbed off on the audience. Too bad, I was looking forward to their show. I like them much better on record than live, at least if this show represents what Best Coast can do live.
