Entry: Random Indie Video: "Young Folks" by Peter Bjorn, and John 1.7.2007

The random indie video I'm throwing at ya features the Stolkholm based twee 60'ish pop of Peter Bjorn and John, (Peter Morén, Bjorn Yttling, and John Erikkson). Holy moly, those Swedes are taking over indie rock, and maybe that's not such a bad thing. First there was The Hives back in 2002 (I liked them so much, I even own a Hives t-shirt); then I got into Jens Lekman's droll love tunes, obviously heavily influenced by the quirky, wry genius of Stephen Merritt of the Magnetic Fields. Now there's Peter Bjorn and John with this song is that is catchy as fuck, take that to mean whatever you wish. And when I say catchy as fuck, I mean that in the best possible way, as in a  "Friday I'm In Love" type catchy. This is the kind of song you don't mind whistling while you're pushing a shopping cart through the produce section. Oh, and speaking of whistling, this is one of the few tunes featuring whistling the doesn't annoy the living bejesus out of me. Come to think of it, I can't really think of any other songs that feature whistling at the moment. Wow, I should just quit typing and let you guys push play on the video, huh? Alright then, delaying you guys from watching this any longer would probably make you skip past this entry altogether and I wouldn't want that to happen. I want you to be a whistling Swede loving fool like moi, so I don't feel so alone in my dorkiness.
