Wolfiness and Swede-ocity

One of my favorite new blogs is Lycanthropy, the title of which refers to Patrick Wolf (searching on his name is how I found the blog). From what I can tell, the writer is from Canada and he is visiting his friend Jesse, who has moved to Japan for a period of time. It's a really fun read, the pictures are very good, and it makes me want to go to Japan even more than I did before. There is MANIC pop culture there. I have been to Narita airport and I love Japanese candy, but that doesn't count, does it?

This is as good a time as any to bring you another delightful slice summer indiepop-ness. This is Peter Bjorn & John (three Swedes because everyone cool is Swedish or Norwegian!) singing "Young Folks" / MP3

Side note - does EZArchive cost money? I tried it and it said I could not have an URL. Bastards!

This song is awesomeness! Reminds me of one of my fave bands, Saint Etienne -- with some '60s Monkees and Herman's Hermits thrown in.

Does anyone else hear a hint of the melody from "Walking In A Winter Wonderland" in there?

Love it.

You know that SNL musical skit in which Sanz, Fallon, Kattan, and some others sing a little ditty about wishing it could be Xmas everyday, and then Sanz plays a dinky little melody on his little keyboard? The whistling part in "Young Folks" is almost exactly that melody.
