The KEXP Music Blog just posted a session with Peter Bjorn and John, featuring footage from a recent visit to the studio which looks more like a large closet with a few people lining the edges. It wasn’t quite the stage show that PopMatters covered in New York City back in May, but that didn’t keep the indie trio from rocking their tight knit sound – cowbell included of course.  With the cameras on top of them as they played, the bearded Swedes gave an inspired performance which gives new meaning to the term intimate. Pared down versions of the songs also highlight the structured composition of each, as well as the variety of their music.
