“The heart is the organ of desire”: so goes the line that opens Norwegian musician Farao, aka Kari Jahnsen’s, new album Puro-O, which came out late last year. That line works well as a postcard from the album’s world – its’s a journey through relationships, both of the present and the future, delivered with scientist’s clinical, dissectional approach and an artist’s flair. She pairs that with sparkling, bejewelled pop music, fuelled by her love of Soviet-era synths and harp. She plays Bar Brooklyn on Saturday.

MUSIC: COUNTRY MUSIC LISTENING SESSION
Get the feeling you’ve not been giving music enough attention recently, treating it more as background noise than art? Well, label Country Music is putting the focus back onto the sound this weekend with their listening session at gallery Coyote. They’ll be playing their entire catalogue in chronological order, with silence encouraged so you can really focus on the art. So you can ” sit back, relax and activate your hearing to the fullest”.
Feb 9, 18:00-22:00, Coyote

EXHIBITION: FRIA FOTOGRAFS FILIAL
Kulturhuset’s exhibition for everyone is back again for 2019. The Fria fotografers filial is open for entry for all photographers, taking submissions from anyone and everyone who has something within the year’s selected categories and themes. The best entries are then put on display in Kulturhuset’s Studion, which means this is a great chance to catch the talents who might be Swedish photography’s next big thing. They collect entries in November and December, and the exhibition goes live in January.
