here we go again

People tend to bitch when I start posting too much music on here, but fuck them, when I listen to Familjen's absolutely spectacular album Det Snurrar I Min Skalle (download here) on the bus so loud that multiple old people glare at pretty much the whole ride (this, mind you, while wearing supposedly noise isolating headphones) there's pretty much only one thing I can do. And that's the post the title track. Cause it's one of the best electro songs I've heard in a long fucking time.

Familjen, "Det Snurrar I Min Skalle"

And furthermore it's awesomeness transcends media, as its video, which masterfully splices together tent revival footage synced up perfectly to the beat and apparently won a Grammy for Best Swedish Video (guh?) and was ranked by Pitchfork as one of the top videos of '07 (ugh - see what I did there?), is kind of the shit:

And yeah, as you might have gleaned from the above, he's Swedish, and, unlike all of his other fellow country(wo)men whom I adore, he actually sings in fucking Swedish. Hot.
