Hanne Hukkelberg

norwegian eclectic // vocal

From bicycle spokes to banjos, wineglasses to wash brooms, and accordions to wurlitzers, there seems to be no limit as to what Lady Hukkelberg might bring to the studio. And what she brings isn’t limited to instruments – on her album Little Things, she brought in fellow Norwegian musicians from Jaga Jazzist, Kaada, Shining, and Aurgasm fave Xploding Plastix. You’ll hear vocal similarities to Emiliana Torrini, but her music has quite a bit more quirk. “Ease” works itself in with calliope and clarinet–Hanne’s friendly voice relaxes you, giving way to a synchopated sampled dreamscape. [thx Julija!]
Adorable childlike spirit beset by mad-hatter instrumentation.

    I mentioned Kaada and wanted to hare this odd song/video with you.
    Kaada – That’s Life O-oh (video)
    I don’t really like Kaada’s music much, despite its extreme eclecticism. His albums are just too avant-garde, I suppose. This song is cute, though.

    Surreal, but kind of nice. I think it’s going to grow on me.

    This is fantastic. It would go well on a mix tape with Architecture in Helsinki and Joanna Newsom. I’m very much feeling the New Weird scene.
