As if we needed more proof, another great voice / band from Scandinavia.

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation hail from Sweden.
Josefin grew up in Stockholm but has family in Belgium and France and she also lived in Paris for a while.
She was brought up on Pink Floyd, Neil Young and David Bowie.

Josefin Öhrn and the band describe their music as Stoner Pop, so let's get to the music, and what music it is.

First up, this one is gonna haunt you.
Amazing song, singer, backing, here it is the perfect storm.
Where everything comes together.

This one is a bit heavier.
But also thoroughly enjoyable.
Love the percussion, the jangly guitars and that voice, ohh that voice.  

Sunny Afternoon

We'll end up today with another perfect gem.
Damn, this band is just so tight.
Awesome to the extremis.

Amazing amazing amazing sounds.

Yat-Kha is a band from Tuva, led by vocalist/guitarist Albert Kuvezin. Their music is a mixture of Tuvan traditional music and rock, featuring Kuvezin's distinctive kargyraa throat singing style, the kanzat kargyraa.

When Beijing-based punk rocker Ilchi heard throat singing for the first time, he was determined to investigate his family's Inner Mongolian heritage. He journeyed there, met two traditional musicians named Hugejiltu and Bagen, and soon Hanggai was born. Based in Beijing but devoted to traditional Mongolian songs, Hanggai's spacious, undeniably gorgeous music has won it many fans.

Somehow I think this is a collaboration of the two, maybe.

But whatever it is, it is freakin' awesome.

And even if I'm the only one who sees/likes it I put it here so i can play it daily.
