Club 8

Sweden's Club 8 have been on my radar for a number of years, mostly thanks to my friend Mike's infatuation with all things indie-pop.  Their jams have always been such bouncy, danceable, sing-songy pieces of pure pop joy, that their latest single "Kill, Kill, Kill" is all the more jarring.  Somber and hypnotic, with an occasional organ death knell, the song is a meditation on animal cruelty and slaughter.  The accompanying video is intense and uncomfortable, but the song will stay with you for days.
