Finally the fourth release from Sweden’s Suburban Kids With Biblical Names arrives, following their album of 2005. 1999 begins proceedings and has the pleasant chirpiness of Jens Lekman with loads of bells and whistles and squeaks. It has a very thin eighties electro sound to it, but is inordinately catchy. Studenter Pa Flak is shuffling shy indie boy pop that bubbles infectiously, Europa makes me think of Lemon Jelly and their sweet chill out tracks and World Music is African rhythmically, and very fluffy. It has some nice boy/girl vocals but is a bit too light. Overall though, it’s another fine EP.
4 is out now on Labrador Records
