Svarte Greiner (Erik Skodvin) recently released a split 7" together with Swedish Lakes of Grass and Gold (Erik Enocksson) on Immune (2013).
700 copies made, that may be ordered over at Immune, where you also may listen to the record.
Immune describes Svarte Greiner´s piece as "an experiment with stuttering cello and guitar soundscapes", while Lakes of Grass and Gold does "a two part lamentation over love and nature".

Let´s turn spring into summer with a couple of replays!
Bertrand Burgalat´s "Spring isn´t fair", with lyrics by Alfreda Benge, and Robert Wyatt and Bertrand Burgalat´s "This summer time", should do it!
Sax player and opera singer Håkon Kornstad has uploaded several recordnings on SoundCloud lately. You get a lot of his old band qWibutee, but also a short "Snutt", that didn't make it to the solo album "Symphonies in My Head" (2011).
"Snutt" was recorded in the Sofienberg Church in Oslo.
Now do your own research in the "Kornstad Archives".

I have already mentioned Moon Relay´s eponymous album, but if some of you are extremely interested in Norwegian music, you might stand another post?
150 copies were released for Record Store Day, but I could not find it, and had to order from Hubro. They still seem to have some copies left!
Moon Relay is Daniel Meyer Grønvold (g), Håvard Volden (g), Ola Høyer (bass) and Martin Larsen (dr, perc), and to cite Hubro: "Moon Relay combines influences from surf, Kosmische, no-wave and electronic music in a quite irresistible way".
Have a listen on SoundCloud.
