This is where almost all of the incredible music from Bergen takes shape, and a large part of any artistic expression blossoming in my home town. It’s called Bergen Kjøtt and it’s host to, among many others, Duper Studio, where my first three albums were recorded. For this next record (which my Matias suggests I should just call “Greatest Hits”), I’ve been recording a lot at Skogen Studio here at Bergen Kjøtt. Four of the songs on the new album have been recorded here with producer Messiahs Tellez and my band. Today we’re recording my final lead vocals, some keyboards with Alexander Von Mehren, and then we’re ready to mix this thing. Bergen recordings will be mixed in New York, Brooklyn recordings will be mixed in Bergen. Building bridges, making magic. We’re welcome.
#TheSleepwalker soundtrack finally arrived on vinyl a couple of weeks ago. It’s a limited edition, uneasy listening affair, so purchase with caution. But hesitate not, if you want this ominous beauty in your collection/life. Cross your fingers and ask for it at your local record store, or order it from my website. #Søvngjengeren (at www.sondrelerche.com)
Almost impossible to capture on camera, but there he is, the man, the myth, the legend that is Big Dave (not pictured: Lille “@davidheilman” Dave). Thanks for joining is last night at @babysallright, Big Dave and everybody. Once I finish this new album, I will come out an play some more. Thanks for giving the new songs a shot, also. It means a lot. We played it like this: Violent Game / Go Right Ahead / Track You Down / Palindromes / Human Hands (excerpt, acapella) /Lucifer / Domino / When The River / My Hands Are Shaking / At Times We Live Alone / Phantom Punch / Dead Passengers (feat. Big Dave) / You Sure Look Swell / Two Way Monologue. (at Baby’s All Right)
Just received a @chriswholm from Norway and we immediately began rehearsing some new songs with a @davidheilman for tomorrow’s show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn. The show is sold out. To celebrate, I then cooked up some good tuna pasta for us. Now we close our eyes and pray for vibes and love, come tomorrow.
