It’s rare for me to come across Swedish music that is actually well produced. Partly this is because I usually have little interest in it and partly because well produced music is usually on larger labels and the larger labels don’t share (mp3′s). I’m convinced that a lot of what we now call lo-fi music is a result of not lo fidelity but low liquidity ($$$).
However I did just stumble upon the band Elodie at the Swedish fanzine Bedroom Love. Elodie have a polished jazz meets pop sound (and some electronica thrown in for good measure). The band, sound and singer remind me of that other beautifully produced Swedish band – The Tiny. Elodie’s sound revolves around the lead singer Evelina Hagglund, the musicians supporting her are tastefull but it’s Ms. Hagglund who makes the music come alive. Their newest record is called It’s Too Bad You’re Leaving. Buy it here.
