Kings Of Convenience - Versus FLAC album
Chilled and laid back. From the "Versus" Album, 2001.
Kings of Convenience is an indie folk-pop duo from Bergen, Norway. Consisting of Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe. Øye and Bøe were both born in 1975 (Øye on November 21 and Bøe on October 25) and have known each other since they met in the same class at school. Their first musical collaboration was a comedic rap about a teacher. At sixteen, they played together in the band Skog ("forest") with two other friends, releasing one EP, Tom Tids Tale, before breaking up and later forming the Kings duo.
A Kings of Convenience remix album, however, would seem to generate a certain amount of curiosity amongst any music fan, as the duo's usual folky, soothing aesthetic makes Simon and Garfunkel sound like Megadeth. But on Versus, Eirik Glambek Bøe and Erlend Øye enlist a number of umlauted and ø-bearing laptop wizards to sculpt their songs into something. Attempts to give the band a Rawk infusion, however, are similarly unsuccessful. Ladytron's fuzzy synths and relentless drum loops overwhelm the breathy vocals, and, like much of their own material, grows tiresome long before the end of the track. Right, Sven, that reminds me about the Kings' own "arrangement" of "Failure," which differs from the album version only in its use of sleazeball lounge horns.
Quiet Is The New Loud. A lot of people are wondering about the new Kings of Convenience album. What has happened is this: the songs were written and even performed live but when we tried to record it during 2016/2017 for a mixture of reasons the results just weren’t good enough. And by that time I (erlend) didn’t have anymore energy to pour into it.

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Kings of Convenience Format: Vinyl. As a big Kings of Convenience fan, and after getting into collecting vinyl a few years back, it's fantastic to be able to find albums like this unique gem. Worth it for the track "Gold For The Price of Silver" alone.

Versus by Kings of Convenience is one of those select few. Their album Quiet Is the New Loud is a very pleasant disc, but the songs all begin to sound the same halfway through. That's not a problem here, as the various remixers take varying approaches to the Kings' hushed and nocturnal sound. They also keep enough of the band's essence so it sounds like a real record by Kings of Convenience and not some cobbled-together mess. Only once are Erik Glambek Bøe's lovely vocals omitted, and that is on the very last track.
