Friday Afternoon Drive/Dance Off

I don't really have anything of substance to say, but I kind of felt as though I've been slacking off a little bit lately. So, as a result, I thought I'd put up a couple of singles that I've really been digging to help you dance your way through your weekend.

Lykke Li is the next big thing from Sweden. I think she kind of kind of sounds like a cross between Feist and Nelly Furtado, but with a weird quirky/dancy Swedish thing going.

MGMT, formerly 'Management', has a newish (?) album Oracular Spectacular, and it looks like they're touring, although I have no idea where and when because of the indecipherable design of their myspace. B(oot)log, had a post on them within the last couple of weeks.

Chromeo is more 80s than any 80s band I've ever heard. I think they're the music version of the tracksuit I'm wearing in the photo up there. And, yes, that was Halloween.

Although it doesn't fit with the Friday Afternoon Dance Off theme, a track from Charlottetown , PEI 'powerpoppers' Two Hours Traffic . Unfortunately, I missed them on Tuesday when they were in London seeing that awful, awful, movie, but Brain and I are going to try and catch them at the Horseshoe in TO, Saturday night.

I'm hoping, but not promising, that Jen and I will have the first in a series of he said/she said posts up next week. Have a great weekend.
