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.
Bjorn: My grandma, Berta Yttling, has got a new apartment, and it’s great. It is, of course, in Boden, where she lives, and is located on the seventh floor with a view over at least four or five nice mountains. You can also check out the Hotel Bodensia rebuild. And it’s a corner apartment! I like it.
