I've been spending most of my free time since CMJ listening to new music, and trying to fix this $@#$@# website. I do that (the listening part) every year as it draws closer to that time - the time people expect you to tell them what you liked the best this year -- and every year I end up discovering at least one new favorite album and/or artist. Over the course of the next few days and weeks I hope to document my findings for all to see, but in the meantime I couldn't wait to gush over my latest crush. Her name is Britta Persson, and she's from Sweden (natch). Maybe I should just rename this site swedesthankyou. swedesplease, swedesthankyou. Download the above MP3. Watch this video...

Britta PerssonWatch the same song live-acoustic @ YouTube. If you like, check out the whole album - it's called Top Quality Bones and a Little Terrorist (pictured to the right). Some of it is also streaming at MySpace. You can buy it here, and for a real review, check out Stylus.

No upcoming tour dates on this side of the Atlantic. In fact, according to Britta's "shows" page, she has yet to play here at all.
