"this song is not for you"

Maja Ivarsson could be my sister. Not literally, but watching her is somewhat unnerving, because she looks like a hybrid of myself and my youngest sister. Especially, the face she pulls at the end of the video for today's song; *L loves to snarl.

Swedish rockers, The Sounds, unapologetically borrow heavily from new wave rockers, Blondie but have a sound of their own. I am a sucker for bands whose accents you can hear through their singing, and Maja's is charming. Late last year Foxy Shazam and The Sounds toured together. I didn't know about either band at the time, but the band is currently working on a new album to be release in March 2011, so hopefully they will tour again soon.
