I recall first hearing about this Swedish band from music critic Anthony Fantano, otherwise (infamously) known as The Needle Drop, last year; if you were wondering, if he gave the record an OK score – I think it was a light to decent 7. I liked what I heard – a punk’s take on pop, even blending elements of dream pop and garage rock. Now, that was over a year ago – I had no idea they had a limited vinyl version of this released… Just to drop a fun fact, Pitchfork only took notice of this back in May and gave it a review.

Alas… I’m making up for this extreme tardiness now – my apologies. The vocalist Maja Milner has such ferocity and passion in her voice, but she’s able to convey her ferocity without that “driving a knife up and down your throat” ear-splitting delivery you can possibly associate with punk or garage rock. If you like pop with some slight grit to it, II is up your alley. At the time of this posting, there’s only 44 copies left and if Pitchfork continues their coverage of them I’d expect that to deplete quickly as their reader-base flocks to their Bandcamp en masse. Check out II if you haven’t already below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
