Erland and the Carnival

Exciting news for fans of Erland and the Carnival.  The group has finished recording their second album “Nightingale” and it’s being scheduled for a March 2011 release.  I’m really excited for this record as their self-titled debut album is great!  I’ve seen them in concert and I they sounded great live.  In addition, they are all really nice guys and we love that!  When more info is available, I’ll keep you informed.

I really loved Erland and the Carnival’s set at the Mercury Lounge in New York on November 3, 2010.  Their set was totally rockin’ and they all had great energy and stage presence.  I picked up their self-titled album after the show and I am really liking it a lot.  I hope you will feel the same way when you see them perform “My Name Is Carnival.”  The video is a bit dark, but that’s due to the lighting at the venue.

Erland Cooper�of Erland and the Carnival

On November 3, 2010, British folk-rockers Erland and the Carnival opened for Irish folk-rockers Villagers at New York’s Mercury Lounge.  This was my first exposure to their music and I absolutely loved them!  They were definitely more rock than folk and as I listened to each succeeding song, I kept thinking to myself – these songs sound like stadium anthems.  As Erland Cooper announced early on, the band was “chuffed” to be playing for us, and I think the audience was equally chuffed to be seeing this band.  I definitely think they stole the show.  I’ll be posting a video of the song “My Name Is Carnival” soon and you’ll see what I am talking about.  However, while you wait for the video, head on over to Erland and the Carnival’s website and by signing up on their mailing list, you can get a free mp3.  Highly recommended. I’m really excited to see and hear great things about this band because I definitely think that given the right exposure, this band will be huge!  Fingers crossed for them because they rocked!

I met Erland Cooper moments before taking the stage and he was super cool.  See a photo of that after the jump.  And thanks again for a great night Erland!  Best of luck!!
