Casiokids schedule some dates, got money from A-Ha

DOWNLOAD: Casiokids – Finn Bikkjen! (MP3)


Casiokids, who just wrapped up a short tour of the Pacific Northwest and Midwest, will be heading back to the States next month for a few select dates, including an Oct 3 stop at Glasslands. Tickets are on sale now. They haven’t played New York since our pre-SXSW party at Knitting Factory back in March.

Since then, it’s been a busy year for these Norwegians. Casiokids’ album, Topp stemning på lokal bar, was released earlier this year on Polyvinyl which collected all of the band’s singles from the last two years. Both the CD and the vinyl come with a bonus disc worth or remixes. You can download single “Finn Bikkjen!” above, and the charming video for the song is at the bottom of this post.

More recently, Casiokids were awarded one million Kroner ($160,000) by the band A-Ha (who are retiring this year) as one of four winners in a competition to find Norway’s most promising acts. Hopefully they won’t spend it all on new equipment — the rummage sale keyboards are certainly part of the band’s charm.

All Casiokids tour dates, plus that “Finn Bikkjen!” video, are after the jump.
