An MP3/Music blog that has really grabbed my attention lately is Swedes Please. Brought to us by the same folks (Craig) who also manages the excellent Songs: Illinois blog, SP focuses on new and up-coming regional artists. Self described as: “Mp3’s from Swedish bands. Mostly singing in English and mostly better than what you hear on the radio in the US. Free and legal links to mp3’s from multiple music genres (including Americana, indie rock, hip-hop, electronica etc).” Being that I know next to nothing about the Swedish underground, I ask Craig if he would mind wrapping up five or so of his favorite Swedish artists of the past year.
