Product Overview

The Stockholm trio of Peter Moren, Bjorn Yttling, and John Eriksson scored a European hit with their delightfully amateurish "Young Folks" single, included here complete with whistling and bongos. The rest of their second album, a fully realized fusion of intelligent songwriting and innovative production, is equally enchanting. Moren's "Objects Of My Affection" combines the rhythm, soul, and self-analysis of a RUBBER SOUL-era John Lennon composition with the atmosphere and melodic distortion of My Bloody Valentine, and Eriksson's "Up Against The Wall" evokes Blur's early Syd Barrett-influenced songs

Review This past fall, Peter Bjorn and John's absurdly catchy "Young Folks" became the surprise indie-rock hit of 2006, thanks in no small part to its appearance on Grey's Anatomy. On the Swedish trio's third album, Writer's Block, Peter Moren, Bjorn Yttling and John Erikkson offer up a full LP's worth of the kind of bright, warm pop music that Scandinavia has been churning out like pickled herring the last few years. Tracks such as "Amsterdam," "Start to Melt" and "Paris 2004" mix simple girl-group-style melodies, Jesus and Mary Chain-style washes of noise and Belle and Sebastian folk pop. On "Young Folks," Moren and former Concretes singer Victoria Bergsman trade coy come-ons over a shuffling, pitter-patter beat and the most infectious whistling solo since "Patience." Writer's Block is one of those albums where the songs seem familiar in a good way, and the band's wide-eyed optimism helps it get away with lines like "The question is, was I more alive then than I am now/I happily have to disagree/I laugh more often now, I cry more often now/I am more me." Thank you, McDreamy.
