THE MEGAPHONIC THRIFT (NO)
Friday 06.07.12 - 12:00 - Pavilion
When a band names its second album after itself, it often indicates that the members have found the quintessence of their sound. It is indeed the case for The Megaphonic Thrift.
The Norwegian four-piece has taken giant strides forward since 2009 when they released promising noisy tones and played on our Pavilion Junior stage.
With the second album, these Norwegians have slit a crack in the universe from where melodious noise rock with an often psychedelic edge flows.
At the same time, the band is able to write concise melodies. The New Yorker-cool, and slightly exhausted, male voice of Richard Myklebust is challenged by the angel-like, ethereal female voice of Linn Frøkedal.
Label: Tuba / Pad and Pen
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
