call it a weakness, but i readily fall in love with everything swedish. perhaps it’s just so far away from my own culture that it appeals to me in that exotic way. whatever it is, there’s always great music coming from the swedes, and this time it’s fredrik. originally a side project for the lk, fredrik has grown to a 6 piece and have an album out at the end of this month called na na ni. album opener “black fur” sees the band start the kitchen party with a shattering beat and a woo chorus that’s sure to get you on your feet, stomping along if you please. the words, cryptically delivered line by line in pop mantras, call out the deceitful lies of the nobles and the whimsical lives they lead. we all want to change the world, but sometimes the revolutions start not in wars but in the pop that’s delivered closest to our noble hearts.
