Bare Knees have that perfect twee band name. The image of bare knees conjures up an innocent sexuality, as well as a blissful naivity common in twee music. Bare Knees have a new record just out on Dig Your Own Grave. I don’t really have to know Swedish to know that “na-na-na-na-na-na” is a catchy chorus and that the rest of the song will only be slightly more deep. On “sex and communism” the recording is so bad that even I can’t deciper much of anything and it’s in English, I think!
You’d think that since this is so rough that it is probably the bands’ first recording but you’d be wrong. These experienced popsters released their debut last year (wrote about it here). Not surprisingly Pump Up The Lump was recorded in the bands’ basement. You can buy it through the label site or through the band here.
