It’s the final day of Trondheim Calling and we’ve still got a full slate of artists to look forward to. Getting us in the mood to tackle our day (since attempting to catch some sleep didn’t really do it) is a Spotify playlist from Conor Patrick & The Shooting Tsar Orchestra Playlist. The breathlessly epic pop group will be finishing out our experience in Norway with a band—plus they have a single called “Under the Radar”…so how could we not love them?

“We have all stood a little too close to the edge, frightening the hell out of the ones who love us the most,” says the band of their choices. “We have all lied, deceived or just wanted to hurt someone or someone’s feelings. Or we have fantasized about it, envisioned the scenario. The pull towards the darkness on the inside. And then processing the guilt-ridden joy of our thoughts or actions in the aftermath. We put together a set of songs confronting the deeper undertows in our emotions and desires. Songs of unveiled identities, like ‘Rocket man,’ the infamous Hungarian suicide song ‘Gloomy Sunday’ performed by Billie Holiday, Trent Reznor’s desperate ‘Hurt’ and Arcade Fire’s battling ‘My body is a cage’ deal with some sort of inner struggle. They will hopefully bring you some gloom… or gloomily bring you some hope…”

Check out some other Trondeheim Calling goodness in the form of our mixtape series, featuring entries from Maya Vik, DRÖM, Texum, Ludvig Moon, Anana, Carnival Kids, The Fjords, Marie Denise, and Angelica’s Elegy. For those of you joining us in Norway, start planning your personal your festival schedule here.

Installation of updated and most suited drivers thus appears
imperative for the smooth functioning of a computer and in order to help keep pace with all the recent technological
advancements. The main difference seems being the rate
from which problems are solved.
