MP3 At 3PM: Shout Out Louds

shoutoutlouds6359What with the recent snowfall we’ve been having, Philadelphia feels pretty close to Sweden right now. So what better time for a new record from everyone’s favorite Swedish popsters, the Shout Out Louds? Their third album, Work, will be released February 23 on Merge, and if album track “Walls” is any indication, it’s going to be a killer. A moody number with Lou Reed coolness in the vocals, “Walls” starts off slow, but does it deliver. Chiming with pop goodness, Work just might make the Shout Out Louds the biggest Swedish import since Ikea. Read our 2007 feature on the band.
