Sounding Bored Episode 23: The Music of Scandinavia

December 6, 2017

For episode 23 of the podcast, Rob is joined by Amy Laurens and Brian Guerin to reflect on the musical heritage of the nordic regions. Acts both massive (ABBA, Whigfield, a-ha) and less well known (The Radio Dept., Motorpsycho and The Sound of Arrows) are placed under the spotlight while there is also space for discussion of the lurid Norwegian death metal scene and whether there is a Scandinavian cultural continuum. Album of the month, appropriately enough, is Fever Ray's Plunge.
