Wildbirds and Peacedrums – This shouldn’t be Swedish

This Swedish duo does what Swedes do: great music. Unless most Swedish duos, though, they don’t dabble with Electronic Pop but rather work with very earthy percussion instruments and the width of Mariam Wallentin’s voice. Their album „Rhythm“ (2014) draws heavily from Afro-American Blues which results in some fascinating songs because this is – after all – the white middleclass getting inspired (but nevermind my snark, the album is quite a treasure).
