One of my favorite bands of all time, The Cardigans, are releasing their hand-picked Best Of album during the last weeks of January. The cover is to the left! To celebrate, I have uploaded several of my own favorites. You all know them for “Lovefool,” perhaps the most unrepresentative song they have ever recorded. But don’t discredit them…They’re in a league of their own. Somewhat country-twang, a little folk, but yet too pop to be defined in either region, The Cardigans offer rich sounds in a variety of shapes and sizes ranging from heavier rock ballads to tediously swinging sea shanty-like odes. Luckily, PopJustice has uploaded a clip of Kleerup’s (Robyn’s “With Every Heartbeat,” anyone?) remix of “Erase/Rewind,” which gives it a smooth, industro-electro sheen. To hear the new mix, click here.
If you like what you hear, please remember to buy the Cardigan’s upcoming Greatest Hits album, as well as the albums featured in the songs above: Long Gone Before Daylight, Gran Turismo, and Super Extra Gravity.
And you, what do you think?
