Quick guide for the search
X


  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Kind of strange that you guys know and like Pää Kii. Strange since I always thought it was mainly the lyrics, that people like about them. But I guess catchy tunes are catchy tunes, no matter what the language. But, cool... Very good live band too.

On the others from the Nordic Music Price, also Lindström would be a nice addition.



As you say catchy tunes are catchy tunes. And for me, I don’t pay that much attention to lyrics when listening to music (unless it is on Danish).. So for me it is a match of how the vocal, lyrics and tunes sounds together and the energy in the music.. and do Pää Kii very very well
But if they are booked, maybe we should have a meet up before the show so you call tell us what the hell they are singing about icon_wink.gif

The same for me, I too listen to lyrics only in finnish usually. Their lyrics are very well written dark humoured songs about young alcoholists and critisism for the society. Traditional, but pretty harsh, very funny punk stuff, for example "At Least Something Positive (Ees Jotain Positiivista)" talks about HIV and so on... But sure, we´ll have a few beers if they´re booked. icon_smile.gif

Btw that kind of punk was huge in Finland in the late 70´s and in the early 80´s. Couple of examples :

Tomorrow we add more music to the lineup.

Still working out some details. In the meantime, you can chew on this.

Apparently the picture messes with the layout it can be seen here


I guess we're looking for three acts with their debuts released in the listed years from the US, Mali and the UK respectively. I guess the acts consists of one woman, five men and one man respectively. I don't know what the record label suggests.

Oh dear. I really fucked up there. Well, goes to show what happens when the "edit" button disappears because of the layout icon_lol.gif

The best guesses for the female artist so far are Rokia Traore (Mail, 15k likes, first album 97/98 ) or mothaf*kin Missy Elliot (US, 700k likes, first album in 97). Personally really hoping for Missy Elliot to come, but I´ll easily settle for Rokia Traore also....

Agreed. They seem likely. But it can't be both. Jake Bugg is a good guess as well: English, first album in 2012, 143k likes or so. It could possibly be him and one of the two you mentioned.

I have yet to figure out what the clue with the record label means.

and the likes is: ≈10k-1.2m

But as Aleg (and others) point out on facebook.. then the key must be Marie Key

So, the smart people on Facebook think the following:

The key: Marie Key (this one is probably certain) - 10k likes
The yeti: Clutch (for the song The Yeti) - 186k likes
The monoliths: Sylosis (for the album Monoliths) - 64k likes

That would leave out a band with 1.2 million likes that has to be related to teeth. Really want them to fit with Jimmy Eat World, but Two Door Cinema Club have 1.2 million likes as well and are playing Rock Werchter, so they would be likely.

edit: Crystal Castles, maybe?

Okay, maybe I'm just grasping for straws, but doesn't the man holding his head look a bit like Eisenhower?(Us president who held the speech Atoms for Peace ) http://www.allposters.dk/-sp/US-Pres-Dwight-D-Eisenhower-Holding-a-Press-Conference-plakater_i5316700_.htm

With the sword already having announced that they play at Roskilde and having 88k likes, they sounds like an obvious guess. Appearently Atoms for peace also fits the multi-flag. I have no idea how the pictures fits anything though.

I´m pretty sure they´ll save announcing Atoms for Peace on the big poster release in 19th April. Fits the flags and likes though and that Eisenhower link is just.. icon_biggrin.gif

One of the album covers is this one: http://www.vinileshop.it/vinili/images/calexico-spoke-1997-Vinile-lp2.jpg

So, Calexico is obviously the one with the most likes on Facebook of the three bands hidden in today's teaser. 110K.
