I bought the debut album by a new norwegian band called Ephemera today. I would say that after listening to it 2 times through, it is as good as Velvet Belly's The Landing. The band consists mainly of 3 women all with wonderful voices. The album itself is very acoustic-oriented, focused on the vocals. Definitly Ecto.... Very promising up to now, very promising. "Everything" has got to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
