Jenny Hval started her career under the stagename Rockettothesky, but eventually started using her real name after signing with record label Rune Grammofon.
As we've previously mentioned, her latest album is called Innocence Is Kinky, which she played the title track on her set.
Despite the snow (in April!), Hval was not impressed. "We have snow where we're from... I'm very disappointed," Hval said expressionless, right before she played "Blood Flight".
