Three of a kind #12

Two of my favourite Swedish artists, Hello Saferide and Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, have recently been on tour together in Brazil. During their time there, the Brazilian website Pocketmusic - who like to record bands performing songs in unusual places - filmed them. Here are the results.

First up it's Hello Saferide's Annika Norlin playing a song I'd not heard before, I Wonder Who Is Like This One - in a lift! (complete with baffled civilians getting on and off said lift!)

Next, it's those wacky Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, who seem to have gained an extra member since last year, performing another new (to me) track, Middle Class Life, at night, on the streets of São Paulo. (as opposed to the streets of San Francisco!)

Finally, Maia Hirasawa, who Spike wrote about a few months ago (and who was on this tour as part of Hello Saferide), performs the song Crackers from her solo album Though, I'm Just Me, outside some sort of late-night newsagents. (nice t-shirt, missus!)

And, while we're at it, here are some oldies-but-goodies from the aforementioned trio.

Excellent interview, thanks. It's nice to have the mystery of the "Noodles are the smell of denial" line cleared up once and for all, too.

Annika. Lift. Lovely. Haven't heard that song either and I thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Cheers too for the 'birthday' greets over at my place Kippers.
