PB & J: New Music

Peter Bjorn and John (commonly referred to by hipsters as "PB & J") new record, Writer's Block, echoes sounds of a darker Belle and Sebastian while somehow shining the bright sunlight through. I am having a hard time finding anyone else to compare them to, but if you don't like B&S, don't dismiss this post (trust me). Your skull will be begging for "Young Folks" after the first or second listen. The song has a whistling rift that is sure to make Andrew Bird envious. Having listened to many songs on this record, I would highly recommend it. Don't believe me? The self-reassuring Pitchfork gave it an 8.5.I know what your thinking...Hey, where is my Mp3, well here it is!!! Young Folks
