Coming To Your Local Bandstand: The Concretes

The ConcretesVeteran Swedish pop octet The Concretes hit North America next month to promote its latest release In Colour. The Stockholm-based act, which formed in 1995 but didn't release a full-length until 2003's self-titled set, is more than just a pretty face (plus a bunch of other peeps, too) and the source of a sublime Target jingle. The act's latest set is an arresting assortment of pop confections, not the least of which is the Partridge-tastic lead-off "On The Radio." But we're not going to try to sell the set too hard, because we bet if you scroll down to the most recent Free Range Music we suspect the link to the full-album stream posted there is still live. Dial that stuff up and groove while you peruse the tour dates below.
