PHILCO FICTION “Christmas Presence” EP
It’s been a brilliant year for Norway’s wonderful PHILCO FICTION and they will finish it off next week with a splurge of not unfestive activity annnnd announce their first shows of 2013.
There will be a BBC Radio One session for Huw Stephens, a video session for The Line Of Best Fit from Iceland Airwaves and the band will be giving away their Christmas Presence EP via their Soundcloud page FREE up until Christmas Day.
1. Portrait Of Silence
2. Horizon (Leo Zero’s Cinquante Quatre remix)
3. Portrait Of Silence (Trabant’s Actual Jazz cover version)
4. Horizon (Proviant Audio’s Retro Haze)
5. Finally (Sandra Kolstad Winter Electric cover version)
Supporting Portrait Of Silence’s icy bad romance are: Leo Zero (Madonna, LDR) who’s brought out Horizon’s inner Studio 54 here; Trabant, from Norway, a free-ish jazz band who have covered Portrait here rather beautifully, Proviant Audio, who bring a twinkling narcotic strut to Horizon and finally Sandra Kolstad, a hip and much lauded Norwegian purveyor of electropop.
