No twenty, no Take it to go A single whoa Down, boring sound All day aloud So predictable Have a mystery charity You can send it off all you wished for And your bling, bling, bling Bling, bling, bling In a teen bakery scene Melting away Rip currents sway Teen bakery scene As past glory fades Past glory fades away Slow order show Make it all count Not impossible Squeeze, pastry squeeze Hate when it snows In the afterglow Have a mystery charity You can send it off all you wished for And your bling, bling, bling Bling, bling, bling In a teen bakery scene Melting away Rip currents sway Teen bakery scene As past glory fades As past glory fades Fades away Fades to gray Melts away Demented delights

Ignoring life It’s a simple journey When it’s back to basics Hark the angels Enough of flights Coming in outta here If the simplest of all deejays Play the best tunes to hear You can invest all of your money With nothing in return Yet you can invest all your weekend With happenings every turn Know what’s right In the middle of wrong Just a vicious cycle Turning round and round Heavens above Hells fire soujourn It’s a miracle A miracle we could still burn Vicious cycles around Vicious cycles around, oh You can invest all of your money With nothing in return Yet you can invest all your weekend With happenings every turn Lalalala

Ciancia 02:27
Ciancia, it’s getting tough Down on faces, outta luck Ciancia, you’re getting out You’ll find a way somehow Ciancia, oh anyway It’s a tough crowd I gotta say Gonna find you out when you least appear To disappear Into the shady shade Of winters grey Osterstrauss, it’s wonderful Host you here, with the crowd Osterstrauss, so you’re getting out You’ll find someplace somehow Oh, Osterstrauss, how did you know? When things got bad You hid the lot It’ll come back full circle stop If you believe in me And take charge of situation It will be all taken care of Thru the hard times You go straight, straight to the show Ciancia, it’s getting tough Down on faces, outta luck Ciancia, you’re getting out You’ll find a way somehow Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh

Burn It 02:03
Talk about what you can Talk about love Talk about forever Everything under sand Whats about this What about the other Talk about what you plan What you plan Everything under the sun In the desert lots of fun Everything under the sun You can burn it once you’re done Talk about what you can Talk about love Talk about forever Everything under stand What about this What about the other Everything seems so grand So grand Everything under the sun In the desert lots of fun Everything under the sun You can burn it once you’re done Everything under the sun In the desert everything’s done So done

about

Thirty minutes. A dozen songs. Ex Norwegian's album No. 13 brings it. The aptly titled Spook Du Jour, faithful to its tuneful and irreverent brand, features the moody art rock of "Thot Patrol," alongside songs like "Burn It" and "Vicious Cycles," which have their roots in Bowie and the Velvet Underground.

Ex Norwegian, created by band mainstay Roger Houdaille, has provided quirky lyrics combined with an eclectic approach for 15 years.

With a wide variety of songs - from the driving glam-meets-Krautrock of "For Your Conveniences" to the Bolan-esque "Ciancia," and "Teen Bakery" which could perfectly fit on an early 90's alt rock mixtape.

Its straightforward instrumentation and organic arrangements create a vintage rock vibe that has enough freshness and individuality to stand out.

Melodies flow effortlessly and chords fall where they should. The album also breaks out of the expected formula with compositions like "Paging Lisa" and the album's finale "Center Mario", which remind listeners that the band is not immune to strangeness.
