I'm from Barcelona, Forever Today

June 30, 2011


By Lori Kennedy
This is the happiest album I’ve ever heard . . . and actually liked. How can you not like 29 Swedes (nope, not from Barcelona) singing about shooting stars, belting out lyrics like “Everybody’s got bellies full of butterflies”? Forever Today has the requisite handclaps, poppy keyboards, and catchy hooks. Nothing can bring this group down. The best part? They’re not disingenuous. I’ll bet you’ll find yourself doing a cartwheel or giving random strangers an unprovoked thumbs-up. (Mute | imfrombarcelona.com)
