Listening Post

Furthering my firmly held belief that all the best music these days is coming out of Scandinavia -- particularly when it comes to female singers -- here's an unbelievably cool song from Monica Birkenes, who performs under the stage name "Mr. Little Jeans."

She took the anthemic sprawl of Arcade Fire's The Suburbs and thoroughly transformed it. The result is something lush, lovely and oh-so-sexy.

I can't stop listening to this track, and if you're interested in downloading it you can find it here.

Here's The Suburbs.

Awesome track. But her name is spelled "Birkenes".

Eh, I wrote fast. Thanks for the catch.
