Sweden has always been breeding ground for incredibly talented musicians, from Lykke Li and Peter Bjorn and John to Adam Tensta and Little Dragon.

Even Ace of Base and The Cardigans hail from the small Nordic nation (remember those guys!?). Most recently, I was put onto a group called Miike Snow, and I haven’t heard any indie pop this good in a minute.

What makes these guys so good? Well, maybe it’s because two out of the three members are Avant & Bloodshy, the production duo that created Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and tons of other pop hits that even the most gangster individual could bop to at least a little bit. Or it could be that the remixes, blends, and mash-ups of their tracks have the blogosphere going nuts.

Whatever the case may be, these are some funky dudes. I figure it’d only be right to bless you with a taste of my favorite track by them, “Animal”, as well as a Mark Ronson reggae/ska version of the same track that’ll make your mouth water. I’m not even playing.

Yeah, you just heard that. I’d go buy that debut album right about now, but if you really need more, go to their MySpace and jam the tracks they’ve put up. These guys got my money via iTunes, so they might as well get yours, too.

Oh, and they’ve just booked their UK/US tour through early 2010; dates here. You’ll see me at the DC show stop.
