The Swedish really get everything right, from discount furniture to tasty tasty meatballs, those gummy fish treets, and most recently the lovely Mary Onettes who just finished a four night jaunt here in NYC. I met them briefly at Royal Oak when photog/their biggest fan Kyle was drinking with them and documenting their every move for Stereogum. They may be a bit of an 80s alt-rock throwback (that's putting it mildly), but they do the Cure/New Order dreamy-ness and they do it well.
Their album, Islands came out November 4th.
