Stream Cold Mailman Everything Aflutter (Stereogum Premiere)

Oslo-based quintet Cold Mailman made waves a couple years ago for their powerful brand of synthpop and the magnificent surrealist video treatments of their songs “Time Is Of The Essence” and “My Recurring Dream“, the latter of which we named one of the best videos of 2013.

Cold Mailman – “Moments” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

I’m a sucker for road-trip media. Against my better judgment, I read Kerouac’s On The Road twice and then subsequently fell into an endless pit of trailblazing American literature. I’ve only been on a real road trip once, so I’ll watch any movie about people driving places in order to “find themselves” and thus I… More »

Cold Mailman – “Pull Yourself Together And Fall In Love With Me” (Stereogum Premiere)

The Spectacle were a Guy Debord-referencing, CrimethInc-associated Phil Elverum-beloved screamo band from Bodø, Norway. A couple months ago when Scott and I were in Oslo for by:Larm, someone told me about a pop band featuring a few members of the group, so we ventured out to a coffee shop to watch them.
