The Low Frequency in Stereo is a Norwegian /
Danish rock band. They have been around
since early 2000, but were most active in
Haugesund, the home town of one of the founding members, Per Steinar Lie. However, they have done a
number of gigs in southern and eastern Norway as well; Bergen, Stavanger and Oslo to name a few
TLFiS released their debut album Moonlanding in
May 2001 (CCAP Records). It has been described as
a breath of fresh air in the low-fidelity /
postrock genre, focusing on laid-back
instrumentals, with groovy drums, a heavy
organic bass and a knife-edged guitar, spiced up
with samples and keyboard. Some of their tracks
also feature excellent moody vocals - "Harvest" is
a great example.
They have been compared to other great bands,
such as Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor!.
Other examples of their work can be found on a few
compilation CDs as well; The track "Finger"
appears on the album Furballs of Frustration
(an animal rights compilation CD)
Zerobros records in Belgium, the song "Over
Copenhagen" appears on the By:larm 2001 CD, and
the Songs "Desert" and "Stuntman" appears in the
snowboard movie "SV2"
The band did a short tour in Europe in the fall of
2001, where they did several gigs in Germany,
Belgium and Denmark.
A new album is in the works. Very few of the
details were disclosed at the time of asking,
but it is scheduled for release in the spring of 2002,
and is likely to be followed by a new tour in April.
