Soda Fountain Rag

Ok, how much fun is this indie pop song? While this is a only brief track at just over two minutes, it serves to extend my sense of summer that will be sorely missed in a few short weeks... and besides, I've always been a sucker for the kazoo. Soda Fountain Rag is primarily the one woman music project of Ragnhild Hogstad Jordahl from Bergen, Norway. The music is produced by Anders Kaasen who also assists (guitar) along with Lars Jakob Stava (bass) on stage for the live performance dates. There is previous material to check out including an EP from French based Anorak Records (Anorak MySpace), a full length album on Italian label My Honey (My Honey MySpace) as well as an upcoming fall release by way of Ireland's Yesboyicecream Records (Yesboy MySpace). For more studio recorded and live music, pay a visit to the Soda Fountain Rag MySpace page. There is also an Soda Fountain Rag NRK Urørt profile with a ton of downloads if you click where is says "Last Ned" on each song. Oddly but nicely enough, some of the other tracks I listened to brought to mind Claudia Gonson and her initial offerings via Future Bible Heroes. The next live show will be this Saturday, 15 September 2007, in Copenhagen at the Kaninkanon 5 indie pop festival.

Hi!
We are a swedish pop-band called Penny Century. All the tracks of our latest album, from Letterbox Records, is uploaded on www.allears.se ( http://www.allears.se/ViewBand.aspx?bandId=09eaf54d-6a78-4077-8de7-847fc0aed2cc) for your listening pleasure. If you have time, lend your ear to the songs and maybe even write a line or two about it if you like it. It would mean a lot to be mentioned.
