danish music


25. Jan. 2006, 20:41

my friends know about my unusual (and somewhat odd) obsession with danmark, danish culture, food and music.

with that said. i'm looking for some new music recommendations. even though i don't completely understand danish, i still LOVE music in danish. but i also want to learn of other danish bands. i already have some Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Kashmir, Jokeren, Stainless, Kim Larsen, SAFARI DUO, Juncker, Danseorkestret, Søs Fenger, Tim Christensen, jørgenprinsen, Junior Senior and yes.. i even have Nik & Jay :-)

any other suggestions?

    hah. aqua. as for why i like danish culture.. i'm not sure why. i spent 4 months there.. and i met some awesome danes. some of my very close friends are from there... i've been back once more to visit. i plan to go again. and nik og jay.. well.. lets just say i like collecting music that most people don't have. and danish rap is just one of those things that MOST americans don't have :-P

    i would recommend Mew, Under Byen, Mikael Simpson, Kitty Wu, Psyched Up Janis, epo-555 and Efterklang... Most of them aren't streamable on last.fm, but try them out :)

    Sort Sol The Sandmen Two of the most awesome danish bands in history. Also, why don't you have any Disneyland After Dark on there? Also, where have you been visiting?

    Oh, btw - get the album called $tarfucker$ Kim Larsen and others. I also recommend John Mogensen for old-school danish music about life when you aren't a high-flier, and Lone Kellermann!

    Østkyst Hustlers is a danish must

    As Donluffe, I can recommend Under Byen, Efterklang, epo-555, Mew, kitty Wu and Psyched Up Janis, but also Diefenbach and Kashmir are well worth taking a look at!

    oh... didn't get all the band links in correctly, but I guess you just as well can search last.fm for them (:

    Østkyst hustlers are hardly a must, however when we are talking Danish RAP they're very worthwhile. Coolest danish rap band is still Jyder med Attityder JMA :D

    I'll Recommend Powersolo, Plök (www.plök.dk), Skalar, Magtens Korridorer, Malk De Koijn, D-A-D, Pato, Dub Farlig, Gasolin', Paragraf 119, Kenneth Bager, Spleen United, Mew, Kashmirs old stuff, Love Shop, Oh No Ono, Furillo, Babylove And The Van Dangos, Viva Vertigo. I think that was it

    under byen, definietly! one of the greatest, most original danish bands in my humble opinion. entakt (www.entakt.mymusic.dk) would be more than worthy checking out, too. especially if you'd like to explore the danish language. these boys transmit it extremely beautifully. the lead singer's voice is quite a treat, too. oh yes. (mymusic.dk is, by the way, a fabulous place to discover new music. it's completely in danish, though.) additionally, antophones, for evigt pasha, jomi massage, kå, traening, veto and utah are all great. but possibly quite hard to get your hands on when you live in the states? oh well. personally, i have a fetish for iceland <3
