Latebar’s preferred new albums in 2021
Another terrible and in many ways costly year in the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic has ended. Despite the hardship, many struggling artists managed to write, compose, and publish new music all the same. They all earned our praise and respect. So here is Latebar's preferred new albums in 2021.
More Beat Music by Nice Little Penguins
Reaching back to the very beginning and driving forward with full brights on. This is the 2021 album release by the Danish indie pop trio, Nice Little Penguins, in one sentence. Some 28 years after their debut album 'Beat Music', Bo Feierskov and the Kolster-brothers, Michael and Carsten, revive the title and release 'Beat Music vol.2' - in our opinion, the best since their 1993 debut.
New Penguin album – with old songs
How often do you come across an entire album of songs that never were meant to be released? Well, here is one - Danish pop band Nice Little Penguins presents 'Songs - that didn't make it'. A collection of 15 "old" songs hand-picked by the band members.
Alarmingly Happy Penguins back to base
Danish pop veterans Nice Little Penguins are back - arguably better than ever. Cutting straight to the chase - here is why Latebar is thrilled to recommend the band's sixth studio album 'Alarmingly Happy' to fans worldwide. A publication surely aimed at people with a weak spot for immaculate pop played with real instruments by real musicians.
Penguins at the end of the rainbow
On June 27, 2012, the second single from the Danish band Nice Little Penguins - 'Love is a Rainbow' - was released. In a time were well written and well arranged pop songs is in very short supply the popular penguins exceed with their probably best song since 'Flying' in 1994.
Part of the way with Nice Little Penguins
Not counting a single-blurp midway the first pop-tunes (in English) from Danish harmony-champs Nice Little Penguins in six years has reached the stores. The EP 'Part Of The Way' takes the band just that far before the release of its sixth full studio expected early 2012.
Nice Little Penguins with a Peacock
For the first time in five years there's news in English from Nice Little Penguins. Here on Latebar we're quite fond of 'The Peacock' and hope it'll mark a great re-introduction of the quartet as an international Danish pop band.
