We will also give a big shout-out to Darling West, they recently released a wonderful album.

From their website:
Darling West was formed when the couple Mari and Tor Egil Kreken decided that the best way to get to spend some quality time together, was to create a common band project. They asked musical soul mate and guitar player extraordinaire Kjetil Steensnæs to join them, and Darling West was complete.

Their highly anticipated second album “Vinyl and a Heartache” was released on August 26th.

Highlights: “And It Stoned Me,” “Spirit,” and “Satisfied”.
