Norwegian synth-pop heroes a-ha are embarking on their farewell jaunt, their Ending on a High Note Tour, which is somehow taking place in 2010 instead of 1986. We're only kinda kidding, since their latest album, 2009's Foot of the Mountain, is a legitimate Top 5 smash in places such as the U.K., Norway, and Germany. If your Yank ass hasn't been keeping up, it pretty much sounds just like the melancholy boogie of their MTV-era Hunting High and Low with just the right bit of nu-electro schmaltz. With Sondre Lerche.
