Mr. West likes the Swedish indie band’s “Nothing to Worry About” so much, in fact, that he exclusively debuted it on his blog this week. Because premiering songs by other artists is apparently something he does now. (Hey, why not?) As Kanye emphatically explained: “THEY SENT THE SONG TO ME FIRST! PETER BJORN & JOHN… S— IS DOPE!! DRUMS ARE CRAZY AND I LIKE THE KIDS ON THE HOOK.” I also like the kids on the hook, Kanye.
Anyway, “Nothing to Worry About” is no “Young Folks,” but you knew that. And it is very catchy in its own right. In conclusion, I am looking forward to many more breezy Scandinavian tunes cropping up on Kanye’s site before the rest of the MP3 bloggers get to them in the future. Aren’t you?
