Liechtenstein, from Goteborg, Sweden, deals saturatedly luscious post-punk pop on their new nine-song LP, Survival Strategies In A Modern World (Slumberland, June 2, 2009). These girls are a sweet and satisfying treat – more along the lines of a wholesome banana cream pie than a cloying, empty confection.
Any of the songs on the record stands as a memorably infectious single. The pick hit,
grinds a little harder and pumps a little faster than the other 8 rich tracks on the album. Closing the record, The End naively spins Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Very cool.
