What bands do you like? Do you like dark music, as well?
Right now, I’m listening a lot to Beach House. But I’m more into punk rock, a lot of British punk rock — the Buzzcocks, the Adverts, the Chameleons — and Swedish punk rock. There’s a band called Ebba Grön, a legendary Swedish punk band from the late ’70s. I’m a huge fan. It’s all in Swedish, so people won’t understand a word, but it’s pretty aggressive punk rock. It’s frigging amazing. I love it. Of course, there are the Sounds and the Hives, but I think there are a bunch of really good and up-and-coming artists like Fever Ray, the Knife, Mattias Alkberg, and Miike Snow. Theresa Andersson lives in New Orleans but she’s from Sweden — her self-titled record is a very good album. If you’re not into punk rock, I recommend that. It’s very mellow, very beautiful.
