Live at the Red Rose Club.
Susanna was the highlight of last nights Rune Grammofon showcase at Cargo, having the audience totally wrapped around her finger, the room filled with anticipation from the audience with her every utterance. The video clips below don't do her justice.
She was followed by In The Country who were disappointing. Whilst there was the chance of them really working, especially given Morten Qvenild's performance with Susanna (he's the Magical Orchestra) they simply failed to gel and really 'do it'. The music seemed a bit too tired and predictable, save for odd moments where it came together.
Last up were Supersilent who I had great hopes for, and did at points really live up to them. There performance rose into some really amazing crescendos, some real tightness and the improvisation going on was strong, but at times it felt flat in between.
Overall an excellent night, only faulted by the incredible noise the bar staff managed to make over the intimate performance of susanna. Cargo really isn't a venue I rated highly, and each time it seems a little bit worse.
