98 Seconds Of Pure Fun With Peter, Bjorn And John

I was just listening to Pink Flag by Wire, thinking, "No one writes great 90-second songs anymore." Then, back from the dead comes Peter, Bjorn and John.

Gimme Some is the Swedish trio's sixth album, and it comes out the end of March. This is a promising record, especially given that I couldn't get through the last one. (Like everyone else, I loved Writer's Block from 2006.)

This sweetly caffeinated tune is called "Breaker, Breaker."

How do you suppose they made the video at the top of this page?

You can get an MP3 of the song from the band by entering your email address at their website, at which point I can only assume they'll put you on their mailing list.
