Casiokids Sign With Polyvinyl!

We're VERY VERY proud to announce that Norway's Casiokids have signed with Polyvinyl! We'll be putting out their upcoming compilation Topp stemning på lokal bar in North America on June 8th. It's the first Norwegian-language pop music ever to be released in the U.S!

Hailing from the same Bergen scene that made up Datarock and Annie, Casiokids were named after their trademark use of beatup, old analog Casios. Their intention? To make electronic music more visual with their theatric live show, which incorporates a blend of shadow puppets, video projections and animal costumes. Whether it's playing a 12-date tour for Norwegian kindergarteners, or their current tour with Hot Chip, Casiokids are sure to leave whatever age group they come across pleased.

The songs on Topp stemning på lokal bar were previously distributed in Europe via Moshi Moshi, both as part of the label’s renowned Singles Club and as a series of double A-sided 7"s. For this debut US release, all eight tracks have been re-mastered and are accompanied by a bonus disc of new material (including six remixes and two covers). Topp stemning på lokal bar will be available on CD/2xLP + MP3. The CD includes a bonus remixes disc and the 180-gram LP includes a bonus 12". To pre-order your copy, follow the link below.
