Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor) visits Norway for his first shows since the release of his solo album on Tapete in 2020. Gary will be joined by long time collaborator Ole Johannes Åleskjær on guitar along with guest musicians at select shows.
Gary Olson’s last album is a tale of two cities, or rather, two studios; one in Hayland, Norway and the other in Flatbush, Brooklyn and two brothers who came up with the idea of making a record with indie rock wizard Gary Olson which now links the two locations.
Gary Olson is the lead singer, main songwriter and plays trumpet with the band Ladybug Transistor who have released five albums on Merge Records. The Ladybug Transistor is a Brooklyn-based indie pop group associated with The Elephant Six Collective.
He is also producer and engineer at Marlborough Farms studio deep in the heart of Flatbush Brooklyn.
On the Norwegian side Ole Johannes Åleskjær has his studio, Tune-J in the bucolic countryside outside Oslo (and works as a lumberjack when not making amazing records). He and his brother Jorn Åleskjær met Gary many years ago when their band Loch Ness Mouse crossed paths with Ladybug Transistor on tour.
With Ole producing and playing guitar and Gary doing vocals and trumpet the album personnel was rounded out by Håvard Krogedal - bass, cello; Emil Nikolaisen drums, Joe McGinty, string arrangements, piano and organ and Suzanne Nienaber, backing vocals. The melodies are at once both delicate and strongly memorable and the lustrous production gives a sheen reminiscent of the best ‘70s commercial radio and ‘80s indie pop
