2010 release from the all-female Norwegian quartet. Katzenjammer first stormed the States with their circus of a live show in Austin at SXSW last year, where they commanded the attention of industry types and music lovers alike with their raucous set consisting of the rotation of up to 29 instruments on which the women are self-taught. Katzenjammer also caught the attention of David Byrne, who invited them to play his artist-curated stage at 2009's Bonnaroo, alongside Santigold, the Dirty Projectors and Dave Byrne and Brian Eno. They ended their US run with a stop by Summerfest where they opened for Elvis Costello. One Norwegian reviewer described the ladies as ''a mix between Eastern European Folk music, B-52s, the sisters Kate & Anna McGarrigle, seasick Bluegrass, Country Blues and a carnival orchestra on the run''.

"Hook-laden circus pop from a Norwegian quartet of amazingly talented ladies who take turns fronting as well as playing any number of instruments. The album is strong and well produced, with a few different musical styles handled easily by the band. However, I suggest looking for videos of Katzenjammer's live performances. The raw energy and fun delivered in these shows is infectious and tough to capture on a CD recording in the studio. Nonetheless, A solid performance with tunes that you'll have a tough time getting out of your head after just one listen."
