Kalle J.

Kalle J. is this Swedish kid who has aspirations to become, as far as I'm concerned, the King of Swedish Dance. He composes these songs that sound at points like any other Swedish pop album you might stumble across -- Jens Lekman, Shout Out Louds, whatever -- but at others like an old disco tune or something more lounge-y and more old fashion like that (hey, "Vingslag" samples Burt Bacharach!)

You can pick up the 21-year-old's 7" over at Unga Hjartan, but supplies seem very limited, so good luck tyring to get your hands on a copy.

This guy's got the energy and musical curiosity of Zach Condon or someone of that age and caliber, but applied to a completely different genre of music and located in a totally opposite part of the Western Hemisphere ...

The video for "Vingslag" is pretty cool, too. It features colorful, random mirrored clips of lions lounging about, killing and eating things, and playing about with one another. Interesting theme ... check it out after the jump!
