By the final night of by:Larm I was worried that I was getting numb. But that was just the snow. Fun fact: while the white stuff wasn’t in the city, the hills were covered in it. Better yet, you can take a train from the center of town directly to the foot of the slopes. I’m from Los Angeles—seeing people on the metro with their skis is magical. Of course, the music on Saturday night was pretty impressive as well: First Aid Kit, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Ice Cream Cathedral, and Kate Boy.

After awarding the Nordic Music Prize to The Knife, previous winners First Aid Kit performed at Sentrum Scene. It was the Swedish sisters’ first show in five months, and they were clearly in a good mood. Given the bilingual nature of the ceremony, they surveyed the audience to find out who didn’t speak Swedish. Sadly, there weren’t enough of us to warrant speaking English. But they played the entirety of their sophomore album The Lion’s Roar, a remarkable folk album that needs no translation. Not ashamed to admit I cried. Okay, maybe I was exhausted. (Although a new album was announced prior to the show, we weren’t treated to any new songs.)

Over at Mono, Jaakko Eino Kalevi suffered massive tech issues while attempting to set up his equipment. The Finnish singer/songwriter took it with good nature. And while the sound never did even out, Kalevi managed to perform a remarkable set, sounding not unlike an alternate universe version of Ariel Pink that actually gives a damn about his audience.

Ice Cream Cathedral was another one of by:Larm’s delicious surprises. (I dare you not to say their name without making a pun of some sort. Really—it’s can’t be done.) The Danish trio managed to sound both delightfully retro (1960s pop being a major touchstone), and impossibly modern. (Thank the electronics for that.) Their bio calls the style “space pop,” which seems appropriate.

I closed out my time at the festival by catching Swedish/Australian group Kate Boy. The Stockholm-based band put on the kind of performance that’s hard to beat, frontwoman Kate Akhurst emoting like a woman possessed. The trio all wore jackets with reflective stripes, which looked dazzling when they caught the stage light. By the time they closed out with a high-energy drum circle, I was smitten. (Good news—the band is in the studio finishing up their debut, so expect the love affair to continue later this year.)

Properly exhausted, I staggered the few blocks back to my hotel, and immediately began feeling a bit sad, mainly because I have difficulties admitting that good things must come to an end. A huge thank you to everyone involved in the festival. Somehow, an entire lifetime of Nordic music was crammed into a scant four days. I loved every moment. Takk!
