Komeda - Pop På Svenska (1993)

Swedish indie pop/rock that takes cues from jazz fusion and space-age bachelor pad music, with ample amounts of vibraphone, Rhodes, and syrupy strings. So yes: it's gonna remind you of Stereolab. It's worth mentioning, though, that Komeda kinda beat Stereolab to the punch -- check the dates.

Track listing:
1. Oj Vilket Liv!
2. Bonjour Tristesse
3. Sen Sommar
4. Ad Fontes
5. Vackra Kristaller
6. Medicin
7. Feeling Fine
8. Vals På Skare
9. Snurrig Bossanova
10. Stjärna

What makes it go?

    1. Sorry, didn't mean to delete this comment. To paraphrase, it said that Stereolab had an album that came out in 1992. I know this -- I posted that album a while back -- but they were still doing their fuzzy indie version of krautrock, and didn't take on this kind of jazzy feel and instrumentation until later albums.

    2. Ok got ya. Anyway, great blog and thanks for everything.

  2. Amazing unknown band to me, love this album, your blog and Stereolab. If you have anything else by these Swedish wunderkids I would be forever grateful. Cheers

  3. OK. It's been two months and a few days since this post. I now own all 4 Komeda studio albums, and have been listening to them on shuffle non stop daily. The title of one of their albums is very, very accurate: Genius.
