(Editors note: I told another Swedish band that I’d write aout them today and thay they would only be bumped if ABBA regrouped. Well I hadn’t considered the fact that I might receive the new ep from Don Agbai in the mail yesterday so apologies to that band (you know who you are!?) but check back tomorrow for today’s scheduled post.)
Don Agbai likes cats and likes to travel. Since these two passions don’t usuually go hand in hand I expect he is stuck in with his cats more than he’s out exploring the world (Don Agbai’s really just the band name for a trio of swedes – Johan, Tobias, and Fredrik). And perhaps that’s better for us as they can concentrate on making their brand of danceable pop music. The new 5 song ep is called Cats and Travel (Vapen and Godis, Sept. and features songs about just that: cats and travel. One song (of the five) is old but there’s a new remix of it, the other three songs are new.
“A Trip To Venice” features thumping beats with a restrained and partly resigned vocal. File this as another excellent entry into the world of Swedish electromic dance pop.

P.S. If any other bloggers out there would like a track from this cd email me (email@example.com) and I’ll send you one more cut to post. This should really break out of the Swedish music blog ghetto.
