A new live clip is available on YouTube, filmed at the STRÖMNINGAR premiere in Oslo by Konsertfilm.no. David Aleksander Sjølie recorded and mixed the sound. Good looking footage - have a look/listen!
We're very happy due to the fact that The Norwegian Arts Council thinks Mongrel & Rydéen is such a good idea that they want to support our tour. We couldn't be more grateful! Thanks!
We've added a couple of more concert dates to our 2015 schedule. We'll be playing Hamar Jazz Club on Jan 22, and Lunsj med kultur at the University of Oslo (Blindern) on March 6!
Wow! We're the "pick of the week" by Fredrik Wandrup in today's Dagbladet, one of Norway's most sold papers. Wandrup is praising TASKENSPILL as "catchy, exploratory and varied", and that it's full of surprises. Read the full (Norwegian, sorry) version HERE!
Sunday we arrived in Oslo after two great performances of STRÖMNINGAR in Nyhyttan and in Örebro, Sweden. A lot of good people, nice food and some Swedish folköl (not so good). You should just see the pictures for yourselves!
Great shots by Johan Lindvall.
Great news keep coming in: we now have two great reviews, this time from Tor Hammerø! Can't wait to see what happens when the album is actually released... Read for yourself in the "Press" section...HERE

Our release concert and STRÖMNINGAR premiere is over, and we have to say it went very well. Feedback has been great, and we can't wait to play in Sweden in a few days! Here's a snapshot from the performance, taken by our friend, the great jazz trumpeter and photographer Kristoffer Eikrem. Check out more of his photos at www.kristoffereikremdiary.com.
The official release date for TASKENSPILL is Nov 3, but the first review is already here from Dagens Næringsliv! Needless to say, it's in Norwegian. We're happy, check it out!
A few days ago we received a shipment of our album. Contact us if you want one (or two)!
In a couple of days Stefan Rydéen will visit us, and we'll start preparations for this Saturday's STRÖMNINGAR performance in Oslo. This is a pic of him from our Instagram account. Excited!
Follow us on Instagram! We're called @mongreloslo.
We're getting closer and closer to our premiere of the STRÖMNINGAR project at Ingensteds in Oslo. We're really excited as this is one of the coolest venues in the city, and we hope to see as many familiar and unfamiliar faces as possible. If you want, you can buy you tickets in advance here:
We now have our very own web page. Not only does it look great in a simple way, you can also order our album from here! See "Contact" for more info. More to come shortly!
