Fibes, Oh Fibes! new album THIS week

In the realm of sudden, glorious surprises, Fibes, Oh Fibes! launches their new album 1987 on September 2. The first single, Love Child (with the brilliant video below) was one of the most uplifting singalong tracks of summer and their new tune, Run To You, is a solid duet with Kim "Kids In America" Wilde.

Fibes has three members: Christian Olsson, on vocals and piano, Mathias Nilsson on guitar and Edvin Edvinson on bass. Their album is a concise ten tracks and includes the mellow, trumpet-laden opener Dubious and New York City, both of which can be streamed on their myspace page or via this pop-up player. While the 80's rages through electropop, Fibes vibe is more organic and almost 70's in its coolness.

Order 1987 here. For Americans, it will cost about 200 SEK, or around $29.00. CDON users can buy it here. You can check out their older stuff (all good, with great artwork) on iTunes world wide or a few tracks via Hype Machine. 2006's Get Up is a particular gem in the Style Council mode.

More on the band's epic hairstyles soon. Until then...

i'm slightly excited by the almost new single by Kim Wilde. I can't stop playing her 1988 stuff like Four Letter Word and You Came (I did!) this week...
