Peter Bjorn and John - Gimme Some - First Listen

I'm taking advantage of NPR Music's First Listen series to get a sneak peak at the new Peter Bjorn and John album, Gimme Some.

I wasn't a fan of their first album (which totally puts me in the minority because EVERYBODY likes that album).  And I definitely didn't like the second one (which puts me in the majority).  I really, really like this new one.

Writer's Block seemed so... twee.  I don't really like twee.  It's kind of a turn-off.  But Gimme Some is awesome.  It bounces, sounds nicely polished and doesn't sound twee at all.

Favorite track: Maybe Macabre

I agree, I really enjoy this album. I heard it on NPR (full stream) and will definitely be going back for more!

Thanks for the heads up... great band!

Rats, I missed this free play on NPR. But I'm glad to hear it's a good record.
