Gimme Some by Peter Bjorn and John
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Almost Gold/Startime International
It's a bummer that everything PB&J does is inevitably compared to that one whistle-happy hit. You know the one. It's fantastic fun, but so are a lot of the Swedes' deeper cuts, and Gimme Some has no shortage of that feel-good spirit. Clap-alongs, sing-alongs and conga lines (see "Dig a Little Deeper") all seem encouraged, but so is full-blown sarcasm ("Before you break my heart, I'm going to break your nose and sing about it"). And that juxtaposition embodies PB&J's charm, whether it's lit through jangly guitars ("May Seem Macabre"), garage-rock beats ("Lies") or cowbell ("Second Chance").
