  • A moment of your time for Sub Oslo, please
    Friday, July 4, 2008

    If you would, a moment, please. Divert your attention to the following website, Sub Oslo dot com. Sub Oslo was/is a dub band from Denton, Texas; they've been making music for well over a decade, and though their releases are both sporadic and scarce--I've seen albums of theirs go for well over 50 bucks--they are all pearls of great value, and are available digitally. Sub Oslo's style is dub, and dub-styled instrumental music. What is or isn't dub does not matter; Sub Oslo's music is very moving and transcends easy description.

    I call your attention to Sub Oslo for one reason: it's hot outside. Their music is very, very cool, very refreshing, and goes along nicely with outdoor cookouts, parties, or other social events. I would also like to add that the live recordings available on their website show the band's different sides, with "Control This" reminding me more of Durutti Column than Lee "Scratch" Perry. All of these live recordings are excellent, and they form a wonderful little mini-album of sorts. I'd love to hear the rest of the shows these songs are taken from, or at least more live recordings. Having seen them live, I can attest--they're an amazing live act. So, please, take a few minutes and download their music!

    Listen To: "Control This"
