Pelle Carlberg is a new name to me (although three albums into his career after a spell with band Edson) but I came across him after seeing that How Does It Feel To Be Loved? are promoting his gig this Thursday at the Windmill in Brixton. And a finer recommendation you couldn't have.
And tonight Pelle plays Manchester at The Deaf Institute with support from Amida and Jam on Bread. On a quick listen Pelle is part of that fine Swedish tradition that combines 60s girl group pop with warm and melodic indie-pop topped off with heartfelt lyrics. You can download songs at Pelle's website (here) or via Last.fm (here).
Other UK and European tour dates here.
And coincidentally the record label part of the HDIF operation may have finished their October sale; but you can still buy CD releases from Butcher Boy, Saturday Looks Good To Me and Antarctica Takes It all for only £7.99. Highly recommended and available here.
