As mentioned before, Swedish trio Liechtenstein will make the U.S. debut next Friday (5/15) at Don Hill's as part of this year's NYC Popfest. (Tickets are on-sale.)

The ladies will make the most of their trip with a short East Coast tour, including a second NYC-area show at Bruar Falls in Brooklyn on May 19 with Finland's Cats on Fire (who also play this year's Popfest). If you dig '80s indiepop like The Mo-dettes, Talulah Gosh, the Would-Be-Goods or, more recently, Vivian Girls you're definitely going to want to catch one of these shows. Check out their track "Roses in the Park" above, which comes from their debut, Survival Strategies in a Modern World, out June 2 on Slumberland Records. Video and tour dates are below...
