The Cardigans - Super Extra Gravity out in the US now, finally!

The Cardigans' most recent album 'Super Extra Gravity' finally got its proper release in the US this week (man, are you Americans late!). So to celebrate, I decided to let those of you who still haven't heard anything from the new album, or still have that awful misconception that they're a one-hit-wonder, these two singles.

  • 'I Need Some Fine Wine...' is an ace title, the kind that Panic! At The Disco would kill for. However, it's really edgy and dark, the lyrics is about struggles in long-term relationship and the music video features Nina swirling on the floor!
  • 'Don't Blame Your Daughter', in contrast, is a wistful, haunting, touching downtempo song. Nina's vocals sound vulnerable and pissed off at the same time. Very beautiful song. The music video's quite unique, too.
    two songs are really really good alternative music (I won't really categorize them as indie).

So I highly recommend you to give both of them a try.
