Song of the Day - November 14, 2006

Wow! Swedish quartet David & The Citizens' album Until the Sadness Is Gone is the best thing to come out of Sweden since the massage. The album consists of a collection of pop gems of varying colors, brilliance, and sonic exuberance. Their sound is a mixture of Belle and Sebastian, Violent Femmes, Devotchka, and a dash of Dinosaur Jr. Choosing a favorite tune is a conundrum of the highest order. I love the opening track, "The End," the Eastern European influenced "Long Days," and the ironic cheery pop of "New Direction." Yet, I just can't escape the cerebral musical trap of the title track "Until the Sadness is Gone;" a song that reminds me of the Violent Femmes with a driving energy that just drills deeper and deeper into my gray matter.
