Sounds Like: They Might Be Giants, The Head And The Heart, Mumford and Sons, poppy-country-folk-rock, Sweden
Why you should care: Sweden will take over the world soon enough, so now is as good a time as any to get to know your future överherrar.
So every so often we get submissions from bands that we like to post here. They usually come from smaller acts that maybe are just getting started, or regional acts that are trying to push out into the world a little bit. In general though, they're NEVER from Sweden, so it was just damn weird that we would receive not one but TWO submissions from the Mother Svea.
The first of those submissions that you'll hear today comes from The Bland Band. Taking a cue from the the current musical craze that can best be defined as ZOMGEVERYBODYSINGATONCENOWDAMMIT country rock, "Pålsboda Jam" is The Bland Bands first, as in "they don't even have an album yet", ever song that they've unleashed upon the world. Does it sound familiar? You betcha! But there's nothing wrong with that when the music is this catchy.
Watch the video for "Pålsboda Jam" below, and tell us what you think. And be sure to subscribe to The Bland Band's Soundcloud profile where not only can you download this track, but you'll be the first to know when the band releases more music.
