  • Summary: Actually, they're from Sweden. Numbering a Polyphonic Spree-esque 29 members, the Emanuel Lundgren-led collective made their full-length debut in 2006 with the unusually chipper 'Friends,' which hit the States in early 2007.

    You'd have to hate life not to eat this long-awaited, sugar-coated anthology up. [Mar 2007, p.98]
  2. The sort of euphoric, sweetly intentioned indie pop that, despite occasionally making Belle & Sebastian sound like Da Lench Mob, nevertheless manages to stay the right side of cloying.
  3. Depending on your temperament, this translates to either the Feelgood Band Of 2006 or a horrific saccharine overdose.
  4. Part of what keeps the sweetness from becoming cloying is sthe music's awareness and subtle humor. [Apr 2007, p.55]
  5. Lundgren has ample melodic gifts, and most cuts... are pretty damn charming.
  6. All too often, I'm From Barcelona are either forgettable or just beyond cloying.
  7. 10
    Surely--surely!--this is an elaborate hoax. [Oct 2006, p.110]
