“It would stretch, it turned out. After releasing an instrumental rock album and then an experimental one, Peter Bjorn and John are back with their most memorable work since 2006’s “Writer’s Block,” whose lead single was “Young Folks.”

More impressive, “Gimme Some” is arguably Peter Bjorn and John’s first release that captures the immediacy and primal joy that course through their live performances.

“We often feel when people come to our shows, either they are shocked and think that the records are better, or they love the live show and think the records are lame,” Morén says recently ahead of Peter Bjorn and John’s show at the Paradise Rock Club on Thursday. “We wanted to make a record that reflects the energy and the punkiness that we have onstage.”” [Boston.com]

Peter Bjorn & John played Bowery Ballroom with Bachelorette twice last night, early and late. They play their third NYC show on the tour tonight (5/3) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Bachelorette then plays her own show at Glasslands before the tour continues out of town.

More pictures from last night’s early show, including a shot of the guy who was waving the LP around and then eventually got it signed, and one of the setlist, below…
