If you haven’t heard of Norwegian label Smalltown Supersound, here’s your chance to get to get an earful. This November Soho’s House of St Barnabas provides the setting for an exclusive label night featuring performances from Swedish band Dungen, model-turned-songstress Carmen Villain, rising techno star André Bratten and Norwegian disco legend Bjørn Torske, all topped off with seasoned star Neneh Cherry, who is taking to the decks to play a DJ set.
Smalltown Supersound is an independent record label based in Oslo, dedicated to jazz, rock and electronica. Dungen staked their claim to prog-rock/psychedelia territory with the critically lauded album Allas Sak earlier this year, and André Bratten is following in the footsteps of label-mate Bjørn Torske with his own take on the electronica genre.
If that line-up isn’t enough to make you dig out your dancing shoes, the location might be an incentive in itself. The House of St Barnabas is a not-for-profit private members’ club founded to instigate social change and offer help for the homeless. Good music, good cause, good vibes. Good reason to clear your calendar.
