Ida Maria’s Stateside Invasion Coming Just In Time

Dec 11th, 2008 // 9 Comments


In this year’s installment of Scandinavian Records That Suffer Too-Long Delays As Far As Official Release On These Shores Go, today brings the news that Ida Maria’s fantastically spunky Fortress Round My Heart will get a Stateside release in April, and she’ll be playing a couple of shows in this country’s decadent coastal enclaves come January. Since it’s never the wrong time to post the nervous-energy-filled “Oh My God,” here you go. If you haven’t heard it yet somehow, seriously, press “play” on the above embedded YouTube right now. That’s an order! No, really! [Pitchfork / YouTube]

    I am so glad this is coming out here! WOXY plays several songs from the record and I dig them all so much! Thanks for the good news.

    Doesn’t she look/sound/act a lot like Kate Nash? Or is that just me?

    Propulsive, no?

    HUZZAH!
    AND SHE’S COMING TO NYC!
    I AM SO EXCITED, I MUST TYPE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS!

    My favorite album of the year, period. It’s good enough that I will actually purchase it once it is released here.

    I absolutely adore everything I’ve heard off of this album so far.
