a little western hospitality

i never see enough written anywhere about sweden’s club 8. after all, they’ve been specializing in the same kind of danceable indie pop as fellow countrymen peter, bjorn & john, lykke li and the like for going on 14 years now.

i could argue the injustice of america’s seeming lack of interest in past underrated gems like strangely beautiful for hours so i’ll just cut myself off and get to the point. club 8 have a new album on the way, their first since 2007’s equally underrated the boy who couldn’t stop dreaming. it’s called the people’s record and it will be out on may 18 via their label labrador.

the first track to surface from it is the bouncy, brazilian-influenced “western hospitality.” it’s a perky little ditty and well worth your time, just like the rest of their slept-on catalog. sigh.
