The American band "Haim" a band formed of three sisters Este Haim, Danielle Haim and Alana Haim. Their sound has been described as;
"Nu-Folk-Meets-Nineties-R&B" And "Music that sounds like it was written on a lakeside retreat attended by either Stevie Nicks, John Waite or En Vogue."
They aren't so well known in Europe yet but are very well known in The States and are nominated to MTV Music Awards in the category "Brand New for 2013" and won the BBC "Sound of the year."
Haim's most seen mucis video on youtube is "Forever."
Lovely video shot on a rooftop in Copenhagen.
Fallulah is a Danish/Romanian singer-songwriter, better known for her song I Lay My Head, which has had a lot of airplay on Danish radio.
This waltz with balkan undertones is a more quiet side of her. We love her style and the whole feeling and aesthetics of the video.
Lovely young girls to get your mood up on a day of snow - at least here in Copenhagen. Fortunately the snow stopped again and the sun might be breaking, but nevertheless it's a nice song and a cute, very low-tech video.
The girls are twin sisters, and their EP will come out in May.
Dead Man's Bones is a band with actor Ryan Gosling and his friend Zach Shields. Their first album was released in October, 2009 and features a collaboration with L.A.'s Silverlake Conservatory Childrens Choir.
Though the guys claim they're musical newbies (Gosling's singing alongside Britney Spears on The New Mickey Mouse Club notwithstanding), they played almost all of the instruments on their self-titled debut. Gosling even taught himself the cello for the eerie waltz "Buried in Water" after the two cello players they had enlisted turned out to be frauds. "They came in and we pressed record and they had never touched a cello before in their life," says Gosling.
Watch the video below. Who could have thought the cat from The Notebook would be a decent singer?
A feel-good song to start the week off... And a girl being very talented with that hoola hoop hoop. She makes it look so easy!
An impressive collection of movie title stills, from all decades starting in the 1920's. Flick through to find your favourite movies.
Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland... Might be very old news, but take a look at these new photos. Some people can't wait for this exceptional visual and artistic experience, others think Tim Burton is ruining a classic with his now too predictable style and casting of Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter yet again... What do you think?
Our beloved Nouvelle Vague released a new album, and we are very happy to learn that they are stopping by Copenhagen in October for a concert!! Also, they are visiting our Nordic neighbours Stockholm, Oslo, and Helsinki - Check out the dates on their Myspace.
Here is a performance of their first single from the new album, Depeche Mode's 'Master And Servant'... Enjoy!
There's No Place For Lonely People from 1967 - a video full of that 1960's feeling. And Twiggy dancing in a fabulous sequin dress!
Have a nice weekend - whether it starts tomorrow or on saturday!

The album Some People Have Real Problems is more than a year old, but was only recently released in several European contryes, like Denmark.
She is best known for her song Breathe Me, which has appeared in several commercials from eg. Coca Cola and Danske Bank, and it was used to end the very last episode of the series Six Feet Under. It is a very strong song, and brings immediate associations if you have heard it berfore. Imagine being at a concert, this song comes on, and the first thing you think of is this bank, watch or whatever... That was definitely not the intention.
Buttons is the last song on the album, and it ends it with style and happiness - and the video is just crazy! Click the image to see it...
Magical and picturesque short film from 1956, about a boy who makes friends with a red balloon, filmed in the Belleville ares of Paris. There is almost no dialog spoken in the film, and with its Oscar win for Best Original Screenplay, the film is the only short film to win to win an Academy Award outside of the short film categories.
A series of stills, to get you into the mood. Enjoy...
Beautiful voice, skills, and creativity.. These girls are so lovely, cool and wonderfully arty - very lovable!
Wonderful movie by Michel Gondry, about a young man, StÃ©phane, who is actually very annoying and childish, and whose vivid dreams and imagination often interfere with his ability to interact with reality. I just love the atmosphere in
it! It is visually hypnotic, funny, and also very emotionally intense.
The techniques employed to achieve the effects in the film are
amazingly simple, stop-motion, and they suit the movie and the
dream-feeling very well.
This is one of the many beautiful dream sequences throughout the movie;

1984. The voice of an angel, Elizabeth Fraser, will be part of musical history with all its raw instinctual content, simply beautiful!
The first video is the original video. The second one is by some guy made his own video for
the song - he really catched the dreamy 80's feeling in it, I think.
Remember those posters with beaches, sunsets, palm trees, and couples
holding hands in dark silhouette? The second video reminds me of those!
These are the courses that are served:
Warning: Do not watch "Babette's Feast" on an empty stomach. It could be a dangerously expensive evening, as it may drive you out to the nearest restaurant.
The movie is in Danish, but I could only find a good clip from it
dubbed in English. It is pretty long (ten minutes), but the first part
where they enter the dining room is a must-see!
This just makes me happy! Lovely song and video by Nouvelle Vague, a French band, who do cover songs - mostly punk rock, post-punk, and New Wave songs, which they turn into this soft bossa nova-style.
This one was originally done by Lords of The New Church, in 1983.
Movie from 1986, starring David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly. This is an amazing movie, even today, and there are many cool and beautiful visual effects!
The plot revolves around a young girl - Sarah's quest to rescue her little brother from the Goblin King, while trapped in a world that is an enormous maze.
I love this scene with the changing directions, and David Bowie singing. It's so nice to discover amazing old stuff...
This year is the 25th anniversary of the film "Flashdance". To celebrate that, here is the film's Oscar-winning Best Song "What a Feeling". Love that song!
For those in need of a re-cap, the movie is about Alex Owens, a Pittsburgh steel-mill welder by day, and exotic dancer by night, who dreams of a career in ballet.
Controversy followed when it was revealed that many of the film's signature dance scenes were largely performed by Jennifer Beal's dance double Marine Jahan, but the film went on to dominate the summer box-office of 1983. I don't mind, it's still a cool movie, and why not do it like that when one is a good actor, and the other is a good dancer? I bet it wouldn't have been the same, if one of them had done both!
It is directed by Michel Gondry, whose work I admire, he does these wonderful analogue works in a very digital time.
It is pretty obvious that it's a late nineties thing - the hair, clothes, and gel candles (remember those?) reveal it at once, but I think the way it is done makes it so cool still!
Check out this great video and song by Feist - it makes us feel happyâ€¦ and a little bit envious of that blue sequin suit - how cool is that!|
Filmed in the 90s. Pretty sweet dance moves, and wonderful clothes. I'm not sure if they intentionally made it hilarious - But the song is good!
This is actually a scene from a movie, Pennin Manathai Thottu. The song is Kalluri Vaanil. The main dancers are Prabhu Deva and Jaya Sheel.
|Beautiful and calm song, sung by Paul McCartney. This song has been inspiration for our Fall/Winter 08 collection. Being both cheerful and gloomy at the same time, is one of the characteristics of this song, that makes it interesting.|
