120 Days:
By Mandana Beigi
120 Days (CD Smalltown Supersound/Vice)

This is the new generation of rock. In fact, if there were an electronic/neo rock revolution, 120 Days should be the ones leading the movement. They are the epitome of a sound that has traveled through the tunnel of time and been influenced by generations of rockers. From the Velvet Underground, Joy Division, and Kraftwerk to the Stooges, David Bowie, Primal Scream and Radiohead, this band reflects the passage of time, the classic influences, and the evolution of music all at once. They are also the first Norwegian band to ever be signed directly to a US label.

Formed in 2001 in Kristiansund on the northwest coast of Norway, the band consisted of four 19 year-old friends. They called themselves “Beautiful People.” They soon ditched the local scene for Oslo where they lived and rehearsed in a used motor home parked on the street!

Their critically acclaimed 3-song EP was released in 2004 on an independent small label in Oslo (Public Demand Records). Later in the year, they released their second EP, which took Norway by surprise and paved the way for them to play large gigs such Norway’s By:Larm and Oywa festivals, England’s Reading and Leeds festivals, as well as Spain’s SONAR festival.

Their self-titled U.S. debut is a remarkable effort in creating a fresh sound that marries the simplicity of 60s and 70s music to the energy and the progressive approach of the early 2000s. “Come Out”, the nine-minute long album opener is an incredibly bold song with layers of electronic rock, pop hooks, and versatile vocals. The high-tempo “Get Away”, the irresistible “Lazy Eyes” and the creepy mellow “Sleepless Nights” lead up to eleven minutes of pure experimental music on “I’ve Lost My Vision.”

This is undoubtedly one of the best records I have heard in a long time and perhaps a small glimpse at what these guys are capable of.
