Let it Snow...Miike Snow

Artist: Miike Snow
Recommended If You Like: Little Boots, La Roux, Passion Pit, Vampire Weekend

When I first heard Miike Snow on LSTN #3 and 4 from Urban Outfitters I originally thought it was just one person but later I found out that it's actually a 3 man band. Two Swedish musicians/DJs Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg (best known as production duo Bloodshy & Avant for their work on Britney Spears’ Toxic) teamed up with American producer Andrew Wyatt to create drum-heavy synth rock that has me hooked. Check out tracks Animal, Burial and Plastic Jungle. They've also remixed some tracks by Vampire Weekend and Passion Pit.

The self titled album, Miike Snow, was released on May 12, 2009 and they are currently streaming their entire album on or you can download some free tracks courtesy of RCRD LBL here. Miike Snow will be playing at The Supermarket in Toronto on Friday, June 5th and their US debut will be in Brooklyn at Studio B this Saturday June 6, 2009. Tickets are only $5 in advance!
