SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "A SUDDEN SICKNESS" - Nils Bech /// "AUTOMATIC LOVER" - Jay Jay Johanson
"Nils Bech is a Norwegian singer and performance artist who explores the tensions between art and dance, contemporary and pop music" as he states on his Facebook page. "A Sudden Sickness" blew me away instantly this morning with its peculiar mélange of Erlend Øye style vocals and Jay Jay Johanson's melancholy. The latter one is the artist behind the second video. "Automatic Lover" is a blast from the disco past, Johanson's vibrant rendition of Dee D. Jackson's 1978 euro disco classic. The cover comes from his most accomplished album in my opinion - "Antenna" surrounded by the flamboyant androgenous imagery. Those two Nordic tracks strangely compliment each other.
