Mulled cider, twill blazers, Kings of Convenience -- some things just go with autumn. Starting with the 2001 release of their cheekily-titled debut, Quiet is the New Loud, Norwegians Erlend Øye (the red-headed one) and Eirik Glambek Bøe have consistently crafted warm acoustic folk that gently breaks hearts and brings smiles in equal measure.

In town to promote their latest, the SPIN-approved Declaration of Dependence, KoC stopped by the our office to play a couple of lilting originals and a cover of Lesley Gore's proto-emo classic, "It's My Party" -- complete with a scatted faux-trumpet solo by Øye.
