Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Swedish Indie Pop trio. For their sixth album, the band chose to work with a producer for the first time ever, enlisting the skills of Per Sunding at Tambourine Studios. Gimme Some, the follow up to 2009's more experimental Living Thing, is a definite return to Peter Bjorn And John's Pop roots. So the move to work with Per Sunding - a member of the now defunct Eggstone (a band that was once dubbed "the godfathers of Swedish pop") seemed especially fitting.

Writer's Block was a great record, full of hooky rock tunes like Young Folks (the whistling chorus went viral overnight). This record is a return to form after some more mellow discs. There's not a weak song here. The band's roots are showing with riffs lifted from Archie Bell & the Drells classic "Tighten Up" on Dig a Little Deeper, just to mention one of the more obvious homages.

The first single, "Second Chance" is made for heavy airplay. "(Don't Let Them) Cool Off" is a hard charging 80's-ish arena rocker that has to sound great live -- it's in parts punky, REM-ish, and pure PB&J fun. "Black Book" starts off like a White Stripes outtake but late in the track it rocks harder and harder.

There is a lot more guitar up-front on this record than in past efforts and it has a great sound. It's as if REM moved to Sweden and got good again.

Five stars, one of the best CDs so far this year. If you like your rock with jangly guitars and hooky melodies, check out this great disc from Peter Bjorn & John.

Peter Bjorn and John shot to indie-critical claim out of nowhere in 2006 with their 3rd album "Writer's Block", which truly was an instant-classic album, containing so many memorable tracks. The band toured crazily behind it and then took its time to come back with new studio material. There was the side/interim-release of "Seaside Rock", which then was followed in 2009 with "Living Thing", a decidedly much darker album than anything before from the Swedes. Not surprisingly, the album fell mostly on deaf ears here in the US. Now comes the band's 6th album.

"Gimme Some" (11 tracks, 37 min.) kicks off with "Tomorrow Has to Wait", one of the few tentative tunes on here. But after that things pick up and things feel differently from the "Living Thing" album. The energy seems back and the vibration is positive. "Dig a Little Deeper" feels like it could be a radio single, but wait, there's more of that! "Second Chance" is en equally upbeat can't miss sing-along, and is certainly the most infectious tune from the Swedes since "Young Folks" on the "Writer's Block" album. "Breaker Breaker" is a 1'39" rock and roll romp, just great. "May Seem Macabre" takes its time to develop but pays off, with great underlying drums. And so it goes, the album goes non-stop from up-tempo track to hum-along track, and in fact there is only one slow song on here ("Down Like Me") that almost seems out of place on the album. But it all culminates into the closer "I Know You Don't Love Me", which is the "Up Against the Wall" equivalent from "Writer's Block", a long but irresistible song that brings it all back home.

In all, I can't emphasize enough how pleased and surprised (in a very good way) I am with this album, which, there is no denying it, is a return to the sunnier side of the Swedes. At 37 min.

Great fun throughout. Pure pop. Mainly sunny, happy, high energy, but with an edge that is part New Wave, part Vampire Weekend, and with nibbles of Clash and Ramones. Plenty of 1960s, too. Songs are all short, simple, and full of hooks. Settings are simple and clean, often with repetitive builds of short modules in each instrument. Perhaps the best power pop I have heard since UB40 and Squeeze, who peeps through here and there. High quality throughout. Strongest tracks are marked "S" below.

1. Tomorrow has to wait. Big tribal beat with what sounds like a girl group chorus behind. Sing-song, vaguely pentatonic melody with a mid-tempo, steady drive. Chorus is pure pop. "I don't think that you are sorry for what you did."
2. Dig a little deeper (S). High pop in a ringing West African lilt. Think Vampire Weekend. Sunny, high-spirited, summer song. Hyper-simple setting, chords; raw/happy Buddy Holly rock and roll.
3. Second chance (S). Add a cow bell and slightly darker/heavier tone to the same forward-leaning driving pure pop spirit. Dance!
4. Eyes. New Wave dissonances meet Bo Diddley. Skittish pure pop. Clean, transparent setting, built from short modules layered in repetitive patterns.
5. Breaker breaker. Rippling, driving punk energy. A pop version of the Ramones. I see surfers jerking frantically on a beach around tenor singers pumping it in black.
6. May seem macabre (S). Big-city cool/noir version of Squeeze. Thumping simplicity in bright colors with long-cast shadows creeping everywhere.
7. (Don't let them) cool off. Big classic rock drives with ringing guitars, a thumping bass, anthemic choruses. The bridge is straight Clash.
8. Black book.

(Taken from my blog at [...])

With their last album, Peter, Bjorn and John went to the gallows, wallowing in extremely sparse song creation and going for mood and melody over arrangements. They've used that as a springboard to produce "Gimme Some", quite possibly their strongest record to date.

The two albums could not be any more different: one cold and distanced, the other hard rocking and welcoming. This might possibly be their most approachable record to date, even more inviting than "Writer's Block" which saw them enter public consciousness with "Young Folks" being sung (whistled?) by every schoolkid and adult alike. It sounds like a band who simply wanted to jam out and enjoy each others company, which they have exceeded beyond what they more than likely set out to accomplish.

With this record, they prove that they are a bonafide rock band. "Breaker Breaker" and "Black Book" scorch as they make their way across in less than 2 minutes. "Tomorrow Has to Wait" is just as catchy as anything they've ever done and "Second Chance" sees them bringing it all together in one cohesive track. It was difficult to see where the group would head next after their last album, but thankfully, they just decided to relax and have fun, letting the music spring from their personalities instead of forcing the process.
