Feather [mp3]

Blinking Pigs [mp3]

Tonight at El Rey in LA, Little Dragon, delightful electro-pop quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden led vocally by Swedish-Japanese Yukimi Nagano. I highly recommend you check out their newest album, Machine Dreams (Peacefrog with Caroline/EMI, 11/3), featuring Nagano’s silky vocals plus a good mix of spacey-strange, cool effects. Bonus -the Swedes seem to know how to present a full-spectrum, aesthetically pleasing package. View the video down below for Swimming, also from Machine Dreams, crafted by Nagano’s dad.

Also tonight, LA’s own Jim Hanft, who incidentally recently signed to indie Swedish label out of Stockolm, Veranda, plays Hotel Cafe. Check out live videos and tracks to download from Jim Hanft HERE. Here’s his album, Backyard Waltz. New recordings out soon from Hanft’s Stockholm sessions.

Fink from the UK plays Spaceland tonight. And of course there’s SF’s Girls playing to a sold-out crowd at the Troubadour tonight. Click HERE  and HERE for Girls mp3s.
