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.
Give David & The Citizens a listen, in my opinion the best Swedish band.

I just listened to it through myspace. it's okay... not my favorite thing though. kind of reminds me of tokyo police club vs. belle and sebastian (a strange one-two punch, i know).

thanks for the recommendation though. lets hope it grows on me .

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.
Oh how i love Jose Gonzales.

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

I had to take a look at their myspace too, and the songs there aren't that good. Or actually Song Against Life is probably a top ten song by them. I think David's voice reminds a bit of Conor Oberst's and I know for a fact that they're heavily influenced by Belle and Sebastian. At least I tried. I'm glad you like Swedish music.
