BBBD has been M.I.A. for -- gasp -- two days ... did you miss your daily dose?
The Medalist is a great Gothenburg quartet that merges the guitar-pop aesthetic that's in vogue right now with this swingy, jazzy, big band vibe, horns and all.
The songs off The Medalist EP are super clean and crisp -- as one would expect from a Swedish pop outfit -- but there's something subtly, subversively different about these guys. A hint of XTC under the surface or Camper van Beethoven or something. Maybe a nod to Rogue Wave. It's hard to place since it's deliberately hidden behind a light and summery Swedish sheen.
