8/10 Brian Staff review, 26 March 2009
Peter, Bjorn & Freddy (it's John you silly man - Brett) have a new album out. Apparently I can whistle 'Young Folks' note-perfect according to our Ant. I don't know how Roger Whitaker friendly their new waxing 'Living Thing' is but there's an emphasis on strange electronics, experimental vocal harmonising & minimal drum patterns. It sounds like they've been infected by the cult of the "Animal Collective", a little heard of bunch of trail-blazing yank kids who staple the essence of 5am rave pioneers Underworld onto the face of the Beach Boys. I saw them last night & it was like a fucking church service for the day-glo set. Fantastic. Anyway, back to Paul, Bryn & Josie, this is forward thinking Swedish pop with integrity & inventive qualities. The sound is quite stripped back & electronic. I like the sparsity & atmosphere of it all. The songs seem to have an easy pace, like 'Just the Past' reminds me of early New Order and OMD, minimal synths & a searching vocal. I just love the new single 'Nothing to Worry About', like a cross between The Go! Team & Beck, catchy as a virulent flu bug. The majority of this odd album may confuse folks who like their more swinging retro-indie pop but they're obviously progressive musicians who think outside the box. So future electro blues-pop or maddeningly infectious disco chunks, If you like your Scando-indie then I'm sure they'll be an offering or two on this platter to take your fancy.
