Sweet on the Swedes

Shout Out Louds
Howl Howl Gaff Gaff (Capitol)

Maybe there’s a two-decade delay in radio transmission to Sweden because listening to this fiercely engaging disc from this quintet suggests an aural Veg-a-Matic of New Order, the Feelies, The Fall, and a lead-singer named Adam who learned his English from listening to Robert Smith of the Cure. (Don’t worry, it doesn’t make you want to slug him, as he has none of Smith’s hip smugness.) A perfect while-away the three-quarter hour summer CD, right down to its sweetly dinky glockenspiel fillips.
