Living Thing, the fifth album from Peter Bjorn And John, is a strong indication that the acute pop minds behind 2006 breakthrough record Writer’s Block have much more to give. Despite its spare arrangements and instrumentation, Living Thing incorporates fuller melodies and more intricate sounds, ranging from dub to a sort of Merseybeat gone electro. Peter Bjorn And John are guest editing magnetmagazine.com this week. Read our Q&A with them.
John: American Ninja 2: The Confrontation is the funniest movie I have ever seen. The first time was during a percussion summer course at Framnäs, Öjebyn (in the north of Sweden). We rented the movie at a gas station and thought that the it would be thrilling, but we ended up laughing so much that we almost felt sick. A great scene is when one guy knocks 15 people out with one air stroke. Better then all of the Ingmar Bergman movies.
