Writer's Block

Much like the Shins, Peter Bjorn and John draws heavily from the sunny sound of British Invasion pop, though they dress up their breezy compositions in enough modern studio tweaks and beats to make them more than mere imitations. The don’t-miss track on Writer’s Block is the mood-enhancing ”Young Folks,” a shuffling funk groove topped with jaunty whistling and shagadelic bongos. Chipper, to be sure, but the mostly heartsick lyrics ensure that the balance of sweet and sad is just right.
