As I’ve said before, KEXP rocks.
Latest find, courtesy of KEXP’s live performances podcast, which recorded them at SXSW, is a Danish band called Under Byen. They remind me of the Sugarcubes crossed with Sigur RÃƒÂ³s – and not just because they sing in Danish, which is as incomprehensible to me as Icelandic, but because they create beautiful, atmospheric, alternative pop songs.

The NPR Sessions page also lists the setlist from the SXSW show – with free machine translations in parenthesis:
- “Den Her Sang Hangler Om At Fa Det Bedste Ud Af Det” (The Here Song Propensity About That Fa That Good Forth From That)
- “Tindrer” (Tindrer?)
- “Af Samme Stof Som Stof” (To the Same Effect Body That Body)
- “Film Og Omvendt”(Movie and Vice-Versa)
