List O’ the Week: Favourite Swedish Bands

The Swedes are masters of several musical niches: Metal, spiky new wave garage rock, wistful and delicate indie pop and catchy synth-inflected dance pop. I don’t have ear for metal but the other 3 vague categories are well represented here. I purposely haven’t include ABBA because they almost transcend and typify Swedish music.
