Peter Bjorn and John - Young Folks

Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks"

Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks (Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve Re-animation mix)"

Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks (Tomas Andersson remake)"

Here's one of those amazing songs that seems to come out of nowhere, one that a friend tells you about and you can't stop listening to from the first moment. In this case, I owe it to DJ Never Forget, a.k.a. GB, a.k.a. the man behind Finger on the Pulse. He dropped it Friday on his weekly radio show and it was just like, "Hell yeah!" He gave credit to Philly's Dave P, who dropped this at Making Time a few months back (and ironically, I think I remember it from then). So thank those two music mavens for this.

Peter Bjorn and John are a Swedish trio who sorta came out of nowhere. They've got that indie sound that isn't afraid to make perfect pop fit for the dancefloor. On "Young Folks," the group is joined by Victoria Bergsman on vocals.

-Caught them on Conan last night, check out Scissor Sisters on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (foreshadowing, foreshadowing)

-Driz Horse at the Khyber tonight in Philly - Julie G and AJW back from Europe, Steve Bloodbath guest starring

-Matt Yglesias on the torture "compromise" and its meaning for our country

Sometimes this is just so weird: I heard this song on the radio 2 days ago and I thought we were not able anymore to do interresting light pop music, convinced that it was a much older song - because of the voices I guess. So thanks for the link

I love their album. It is amazing, pure genius one of the best albums of all time. If you don't believe you can watch them perform tonight on Last Call with Carson Daly at 1:35 a.m. on NBC. I know that it's kind of late, but it will totally be worth it. If you miss this you will be missing an amazing opportunity. Come on people stay up all night to watch a meteor shower. So if your willing to watch rocks fall you should be more than willing to watch god like musicians rock out.
