A review of the band's first full-length, #3, might only require five words -- "Swedish version of Magnetic Fields" -- as singer Johan Hedberg is a near clone of MF's Stephin Merritt. But in great mimic fashion, the charming half-acoustic, half-electronic, all-happy folk of 3 trumps its American version. "Noodles" is demonstrative bedroom pop -- banjos jangle against corrosive flute lines, hyper howl samples, lo-fi tom bangs, and a surreal yet singable chorus: "Noodles are the smell of denial, you will never grow old." Most of the lyrics are just as silly -- particularly in "Loop Duplicate My Heart," a whirling, synthy ode to four-track recording -- but for the most part, this Swedish duo gets the right balance between goofiness and wit. Take "Parakit," where Hedberg sings about indie-loving graffiti in his hometown: "The tags are still there, 'Meat Is Murder' and 'Pavement'/I used to wonder when I went for a walk, if they meant Pavement the band, or if it was just coincidence." Right after those lyrics, a lush '70s-style shakedown with harmonious cries, chimes, and horns seems to answer his question.
