The Electric Pop Group
Seconds
(Matinee)
Released: 2 February


I’ve been watching a lot of 1970s Pippi Longstocking movies lately. I adored them as a kid, and now I’ve managed to finagle my own children into loving the little ginger moppet with the big shoes and the bad dubbing. Funny thing is, after spending so much time back at Villa Villekulla, I find myself hankering to hear stuff like the Lucksmiths, the Vaselines, the Housemartins. In short, Pippi makes me wanna get my twee on. I can think of no better way to get your twee on today than Sweden’s own Electric Pop Group. The brothers Aamot sound like they are fresh from the Villa Villekula, with those wistful vocals and shimmery, jangly guitars. Their newest album, Seconds, is now available on Matinee Recordings.

Erik Aamot doesn't mumble, but the wall of noise that he has to get through does the job of mumbling for him.
