It’s no secret that Idle Time has a serious crush on Swedish music. And it was only a matter of time before our five-track Tunes of the Month feature propped up some new songs from that magical, shimmery land of pop perfection. I would seriously be fine blogging five new Scandinavian tunes every month, but there are other people round these parts who have a say, and, sure… other bands who can hold their own against the best Sweden has to offer. But, for now, Happy April, and more Swedes, please.
Listen to the whole eighteen-minute jam via Idle Time’s newly minted Mixcloud account, or stream the tunes individually below.
And then check out the tracks battling for survival in Scandinavia’s late-start contests.
It’s a Nordic double-team as Swedish singer Robyn and Norwegian duo Röyksopp team up with “Every Little Thing,” from their latest collaboration Do It Again. The tune is up against Idle Time-favorite Little Dragon and “Paris,” off their latest LP, Nabuma Rubberband.
