Episode 69 : Protoje, Razika, Pom Poko, and The Needs (Live from Øya Festival)

This week's episode is brought to you by Stubhub.

We return this week to the glorious Oslo for the second half of our coverage from Øya Festival, with a divere set of four talented acts that display the warm and welcoming community that is the Norwegian music scene. First off we have Protoje, the Jamaican reggae Grammy nominee who chats about his latest album, A Matter of Time, and his love of Erykah Badu. Next up is beloved Norwegian ska pop band Razika, who spoke to Lior Phillips just before one of their final farewell performances. Third on the bill is the delightful Pom Poko, chatting about the origins of their band name and their love of art rock legends Deerhoof. And finally we have Bendik Brænne ("the country prince of Norway") and Maciek Ofstad (of Kvelertak) from brand new band The Needs, laughing at their own "supergroup" status in the Norwegian scene and generally cracking wise.
