Great news today. Dave from Custom Made emailed me to let me know that we were on the radio in Christchurch, NZ yesterday for The Human Pleasure radio show.
You can hear the show here: http://www.mixcloud.com/humanpleasure/human-pleasure-radio-20th-january-2014/ and check out the blog here: http://humanpleasure.co.nz/
Thanks again to Dave for this awesome opportunity, and thanks also to Bill from Human Pleasure for deeming us worthy to be heard on the same playlist as Xiu Xiu.
By now you have probably heard of our Windy Rock compilation featuring Lethbridge bands playing new original music. This city sampler will be coming out in April, but I’d like to give you guys a taste of who will be on it. Click on the names to hear what you are in for!

Norwegian Blue and Mormon Girls are honoured to be included on this Winter Sampler that was lovingly crafted by Dave at Custom Made Music. Put on this Winter Playlist and then scope out his site here. Amazing things coming from VA. for sure.
This one deserves its own post.
We are super blessed to have been reviewed by one of our favorite entertainment sites: Greengrass Radio. Huge thanks to Nick, who we think may be the greatest reviewer of all time.
Hey everybody! Hope your New Year was B-M-Xcellent! We had a great start last year with the Mormon Girls EP. We sold a few copies locally, and sent some off to get reviewed. So far we have had two terrific reviews from Half-Gifts and Grayowl Point.
Moving onward though, if 2013 was the rebirth of our label, then 2014 is where we take our first steps! (are those metaphors too mixed?)
First things first, we are collecting local Lethbridge bands to be on an upcoming city sampler, showing the best of our fine town. We are still looking for a few more submissions, so pop off an email to tyson@norwegianbluerecords and I’ll get you the info. We will let you know more soon!
We are also pleased to welcome our brother/hero/nemesis/cohort Ben Mahony to the fold. His new, yet untitled, release will be coming at you in spring. It was recorded by Q with all the warmth and ambience a warehouse in the Northside can provide. More info on that is forthcoming too!
Finally, be on the lookout for Golden Cassettes. No more info available.
Support your scene. Fight the good fight.
We are pleased to announce that the Mormon Girls cassette, The Farm Sessions, has been released today. It can be picked up at Blueprint Entertainment, 519 4 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB or from our online store.
Remember, we are also doing shows this weekend at The Owl (Friday) and at The Slice (Saturday) so if you haven’t seen Mormon Girls live yet, this is your best chance. Cassettes will be sold at both shows, just five bucks.
We’d like to thank everyone who got us to this point. Your support has been monumental to us. We want to make the best music possible for you all, so keep listening.
Mark your calendars for the Mormon Girls release party! Friday, December 20th, 2013 at The Owl Acoustic Lounge and Saturday, December 21st, 2013 at The Slice Bar & Grill .
Friday will have Mormon Girls pairing up with the best boy/girl combo since Cloak & Dagger, Lethbridge’s own Betterhalf! As always, there will be no cover charge at The Owl, but donations are loved, admired and respected.
Saturday brings the party to the Slice where MG will pair up with three(!) other hot acts. Unbroken Circle will take you on an open-tuned space odyssey. The Void will drop robotspacelovesongs on you like Transmissions from Uranus (heheh.) Then Edmonton’s Black Mastiff will slap you with a chunk of raw, detuned iron. Don’t worry. You’ll like it. Admission is only $10
The Farm Sessions cassette will be available at all the shows.The EP was produced by local hero Jesse Northey (Windigo, Jesse and The Dandelions, The Utilities) and was recorded in just two days at a run-down farmhouse just outside of Lethbridge. It won’t break the bank at a measly $5. Plus it comes with a download code so you can transfer it to your iPad, iPhone, Laptop, Virtual Boy, Oculus Rift, etc.
Be a champion of independent music: support your local scene.
