As a token of my regret, a few more treats for you. I discovered Sambassadeur in mid-2005, and was totally smitten. How could I not be -- bittersweet Swedish pop (a la Jens Lekmman and The Concretes) with boy/girl vocals and a heavy '60s pop influence as well? (To me they sound quite a bit like early Magnetic Fields or early Spoon from an alternate universe -- must be that shared Wire influence.) Anyway, I think Sambassadeur is just fantastic.
Sambassadeur -- New Moon (from the Sambassadeur's self-titled debut LP)
Sambassadeur -- Still Life Ahead (from the Sambassadeur's self-titled debut LP)
Sambassadeur -- The Only Living Girl (from the New Moon EP)
(more mp3s available at the Sambassadeur site; buy their albums from Darla -- just search on the band's name for available LP and EPs. There's more sample tracks there too!)
