A spur of the moment newfangled internet search a few years back led me to a couple unknown bands sharing residency on Sweden's Labrador Records. Remembering that some of those acts earned a surprising amount of replay value, I thought it time to see what the label's been churning out recently. Not surprisingly, the country proven to produce world class pop does it again on a few of Labrador's newest releases.
Sambassadeur - Subtle Changes
Sounds Like: A Swedish freak stepchild of Camera Obscura and Blonde Redhead.
The Mary Onettes - Lost
From: The Mary Onettes
Sounds like: The Cure, Joy Division, albeit more optimistic than both.
