don't bring flowers

The other day I was online and Angel Taylor tweeted something about how awesome it was playing a show with Erik Hassle.  I'd never heard of the dude but went to check him out and was really impressed.  Sweden's pumping out more than pretty girls these days.  He's got a super cool voice, really interesting stylings, and the coolest hair since Flock of Seagulls.

Apparently he's blowing up over in the UK and just finished a little tour of the States.  He's got two really interesting videos out there for his biggest songs, Hurtful, and the one I'm covering here, Don't Bring Flowers.  Although I've got to say I have no clue what the video for Flowers is all about...it makes NO sense to me.  Then again neither does his hair but it somehow works :)

I've also been listening to a couple great new albums in addition to this guy.  Check out Two Door Cinema Club's album Tourist History and Jonsi's album Go over at KCRW's album previews page.  Totally worth it.

Enjoy the cover.
