I discovered Miami-based indie rock band Ex Norwegian earlier this year when they played a gig at Bowery Electric in NYC. It turns out the band has been around for years, and I was just really late to the party. In my defense, I've never been to Miami (am I too old to do the whole Spring Break thing there? Yeah, I probably am).
Long story short, Ex Norwegian's set was incredibly fun, so much so that I ended up picking up one of their albums. Speaking of which, they offer up some of their albums on cassette, which, for those of us who still have a tape deck in the car, is a nice bonus.
Check out Ex Norwegian's latest single, "Life," which is off of the band's recently released album Glazer/Hazerr. The video for the song features a cardboard cutout of lead singer Michelle Grand having quite the day.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
