Today we are going to stop by a type of music we usually do not cover! Indie Pop! It is Christmas now so why not write about a slightly different music for once? Hamre is a  good songwriter and has enough punch to make the music not at all sweet and directionless. The track The Relationship Stranded,

But My Love Goes To Eleven is the long-awaited debut album by Calle Hamre. Can you call it a debut album, when the name on the cover already has been printed on a dozens of releases, whether it’s been as a vocalist, composer, producer, bassist, and guitarist or as a drummer .., and the number of live performances counts more than a thousand.  Calle Hamre from Bergen, Norway, is a well-known and highly respected colleague on the Norwegian music scene, and he’s also the singer and songwriter in Butterfly Garden.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (3771 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
