How come the stars shine so bright
Here in this night, it will not end
There's a boy and a girl
Who know all the wrong words
And you and I need no more
It's so good to be alone with you
It's so good to be open eyed
They won't know us anymore
Once we step back into
This old house
In this old house
Where every door is open
Well listen real close
This old house

In this old house
We know there's more to this than there
The nation of the two
In this old house

This old house is where we
Consider it gone and the same
Now, there were days when we would fall
Those guiding stars would shine no more
Oh it's all right with me
We just don't talk it over
Stay the rest of this day in this bed
It's so good to be alone with you
It's so good to be open eyed
And they won't know us any more
Once we step back into
Oh, this old house
In this old house
Where every door is open
We'll take it real slow
In this old house
In this old house
We know there's more to this than there
Never leave this old house
Oh, in this old house
We know there's more to this than there
Never leave
This old house
Oh, in this old house, this old
We know there's more to this than there
We'll never leave
This old house

Agree - hab sie im September  2019 gesehen - herausragend, mit Gefühl und Härte.

Greetings from Bavaria to all the listeners outside.


Gesehen in 2016 mit Jeff Beck in Basel - commentar überflüssig! Greetings from Helvetia.

Why is people so eager to make this sound like as if sasomething else, the voice, the style etc? Every time some Norwegian artist make something likeable abroad, people starts comparing it to something else and it freaks me out. What is this about? That we are 5million only and still manage to produce more than anyone one the planet pr.capita?  Just take it and enjoy it. It is music, and it began with a rhythm where it comes from does not matter. . This is original music. 



I hear you and agree totally. Next someone will compare them to The National!

Wow - this really builds on Shakey’s original.
 
Nice one, friend.  I can't believe he's got a "Greatest Hits" out - 3 CD's, for God's sake...

Yet another new song and artist for me to look out for, Bill and Rebecca. Thank you again! There's something here in the tone and phrasing that reminds me of early 10,000 Maniacs.

Anyone get that? 
 
I hear a lot of Nick Cave.  Silvert however is unique, but Nick and Madrugada play well on the same tape in the car.
Glorious vocals

Sometimes people treat music like wine.  To describe it to someone, they compare it to things familiar.
I hear a heavy Nick Drake influence.

ummmm, that's impossible....even with today's "science"

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I have a good tenor voice, but if I could sing like him, I would be happy indeed.

 It never occurred to me till now how similar Sievert's voice is the Eddie Vedder's.
 

That sez may be but Sievert has talent while Eddie should stick to tying his shoes. 
One of my favorite DIY home improvement shows.  
Thank you so much for introducing me to Madrugada.  Saw them in Amsterdam a few months ago.  Stunning !
Have tickets to see them in May. 😎
It seems listening to Thindersticks... Very good !
Great voice, never heard it before{#Daisy}

thank god, no. can't stand them. but, i love madrugada and sivert!

 
I hear the Natalie flavor that you speak of, I love 10,000 Maniacs.  :)  but this Madrugada fooled me for a moment, I thought of Eddy Vedder... Into the Wild kinda vibe.

(oops, and now I see, I meant to reply to the person who made comment on our Canadian mentioned above)

The intro sounds like "Moonshiner" by Uncle Tupelo, and then it disappears completely.

 
Yes...  but it has a pedal steel in it!

This has a massive Grant Lee Buffalo feel to it and that is no bad thing in my book.  Reminds me a lot of the Hook.

Miss you guys so much...
Nice, not that dark sound they use in a lot of  their songs.
The voice is just so rich.  I had never heard of Madrugada until I found RP, now I have quite a few of their CDs; fantastic stuff.  {#Angel}

Très bon groupe, norvégien,(je crois), très peu connu, mais très bon, excellent album.{#Cool}
 
C'est exacte.  Tout à effet d'accord avec le reste.
..his voice has a density to it, a golden mass..

I think I prefer Hoyem Sivert's older voice, but a few more listens to this might change my mind.

I don't remember ever hearing this track.  Thought it was "new" Madrugada!  Bill should play this one more often!   More Madrugada, please!

I just love Madrugada. It's a new discovery for me - thank you, RP! {#Mrgreen}{#Sunny}

Me too.
So love his voice.
My finger is instinctively poised over the mute button for every song that begins with a harmonica, dreading it will be a Neil Young song......  Ahhh, I breathe a sigh of relief when it is any other band.  This is nice — I like the singer of Madrugada's voice.

Not bad.
