for good swedish "twee pop", listen to Hello Saferide. It is much more charming, to me at least, than I'm from Barcelona. But that's my two cents.
Oh, how I loathe Annika Norlin's music...

I don't know, man. Everybody at work adores
all of this stuff that you guys gobble up: Hello Saferide, Jens Lekman, Shout Out Louds, Firefox AK and a million other bands that I just can't grasp or get or just..like. 90% of the stuff we report on is indie, so I get pretty sick of it pretty quickly.

This site needs to post more on Hello Saferide. Her new cd is sensational.
Same with Anna Ternheim. I heard she has a new cd coming November...and yet I have not seen a mention of it on this site. Disappointing.
See, that's the woman I can't stand: Annika Norlin. I just don't see the charm or the brilliance, sadly perhaps.

From Anna's MySpace. But I do see it there either, nor do I get what the deal is with the rest of the Swedish stuff everybody everywhere loves. But..Anna has a acoustic version of her single available for download on her website.

There's no brilliance with Hello Saferide. It's all charm...and that's what you're missing. but, as with all music, it's not for everyone.
And swedish music is just so much better than american stuff. it's more talented, catchier and just less formulaic (or so i think). I heard that Ternheim song last week....it's good...but i'm ready for the full version and, subsequently, a new full length (Nov 12!)
I thought so...that's what I told my colleagues but they just laughed and said something like "go listen to metal, metalkid..". Not really, but they might as well have!
You really think so? Do you listen to anything else from here other than indie?

not typically. but i'm open for suggestions if you have any good, current swedish recs for me.
new music is always a good thing.
Hm...I'm just going to list a bunch of bands from every possible genre that happen to come from Sweden, and hopefully you'll enjoy some of it. I'll put my favourites in bold. Get back to me if you do like 'em:
Monde Yeux, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Cult of Luna, AC4
, Laakso, Teddybears STHLM,
Moneybrother, Familjen, Tiger Lou,
In Flames, bob hund, Adam Tensta, Prime Ape Got The Blues
, José Gonzáles, Shout Out Louds, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Mando Diao, Kleerup, Robyn and...that should do it.

He's a sweet and bearded fellow. I'm just kinda disappointed that his covers are better than his own material...
