Ok, so say you too have this Swedish-only mp3 blog. And then let’s say a new record comes out by The Ark. Should you write about it, even though it’s drek? The thing is some people really like it and I imagine the band/label/promoter thinks they’ve done something truly fantastic. And really is it drek just `cause I think so (remember I love the music of Let’s Be Honey’s, G.O.O.F. and a ton of other Swedish lo-fi nonsense)? On the other hand, this so-called drek from The Ark is at least fun while it lasts, unlike the incessant tedium that was the The Sounds new record.
So against my better judgement here are two songs from the new record by The Ark. Now you know that when there’s an Abba reunion disc you’ll be able to hear it here first and I won’t be condescending and elitist. But still there’ll be no Kent on Swedesplease, I’ve got to draw the line somewhere! Buy State of the Ark now in the U.S. here.
