HP Gundersen is a countrymusician and well known talent hunter from Bergen. His new projects are based on what he calls "drone pop", and if he is not lying, The Last Hurrah (video) will be released on Rune Grammofon i January 2011.
Here is another one called "dronepopsymfoni" recorded at the small club Nøsteboden, and Gunderen even had Jon Irabagon over to play "drone jazz". I missed out on that concert, but would be interested to hear from anyone who was there.
This is pretty far from sunn o))) and such bands, but check out Wikipedia for more on drone music.
