This Just In: Kings Of Convenience

So so so so so so excited that two early Kings Of Convenience albums, as well as their remix/rendition album have been reissued! Original pressings of Quiet Is The New Loud, Riot On An Empty Street, and Versus all for go BIG BUCKS online, but now you can own them all for less than the price of one original – wooooo! For those of you who haven’t heard them, KOC make perfect, melodic folk tunes with clever (Norwegians writing in English) lyrics and vocal harmonies for days. They also had Feist on a couple tracks before Feist was a thing, so they know what’s up. And Versus boasts an incredible cast of artists including Four Tet, Ladytron and Röyksopp. All of these records are get-mellow must-haves. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Oh, did I mention these are highly recommended? Take a listen below and check out this week’s slightly small since next week is Record Store Day in-stock list below that. -MLE
