Shout Out Louds live

There were a lot of great shows going on in Chicago last night, (Bright Eyes w/ Andrew Bird, The New Pornographers, the Raveonettes) but I wanted to go to the Logan Square Auditorium for the Shout Out Louds. Why? I hadn’t seen them before. and they’re one of my wife’s favorite bands. So I wore my Merge Records t-shirt for the occasion, and it was well worth our time. check it:

The Shout Out Louds are from Sweden. Now I don’t feel this way about any other country, but Sweden has a certain knack for producing wonderful music. There’s a sincere pureness in the pop of bands like the Shout Out Louds (along with other wonderful Swedish artists like Jens Lekman, Jose Gonzalez, and The Knife). These guys sound tight, look sharp, and feel good. Check out the tour dates at the bottom, and try to make it out to their show. They do it well.
