I don't want to wake up knowing I don't have a future.

File this one under "best album of 2007 that I didn't hear until 2008".
It all began a month ago when a friend sent me an mp3 of "Impossible" and exclaimed "if your life had a theme song, this would be it!" That immediately peaked my interest, or at the very least made me morbidly curious considering the amount of stress and angst I was encountering at the time. Luckily the Swedes did not disappoint. They soundtracked my mopiness with brilliant dreamy indie pop- the kind that sparkles and cracks and floats on and on and on. Our Ill Wills overflows with looping, cyclical melodies that at once go everywhere and nowhere, the kind of melodies that both reinforce and assuage our daily melancholia. And I love it for that. You should too.
