Music I Like: Katzenjammer (2005–)

A remarkable band of four women from Norway. An amalgamation of talent in both singing and playing, the band members play a total of fifteen instruments, which they switch between seamlessly during their live gigs. Their music is really something different, hard to describe and hard to put a label on. That is why I won’t even try to pick a genre for them, they need to be heard to truly know. A total shame, though, that their latest album, Rockland, failed to live up to my expectations and was quite toned down from the previous two. It wasn’t bad, it was just… ok. Here’s hoping they will release more music in the future and catch some of that spark again.
