We're glad to hear one of our favorite Norwegian acts is playing a few NY shows as part of a pretty huge tour. It gives us good occasion to revisit a great, but slept on record, I Was A King's self titled album that came out in March. Tara gave it a rave review a few months ago, but since then we haven't heard much about these folks. Guess what just made it back on the new release playlist? They have a show Saturday at Mercury Lounge and one Sunday at Union Hall. They will be joining The Constantines and Crystal Antlers next week for more dates. Check their myspace for the full run.
