The Cardigans: New Album

If all The Cardigans are only remembered for their 1997 pop hit "Lovefool," then that will be a shame. The band released two solid albums before their brush with commercial success and they haven't missed a beat since then. In the group's early days, they were masters at combining vintage '60s pop with dark lyrics, but with 1998's Gran Turismo, the group shifted their focus to a more fuzzed out and distorted musical base and they remain on that path to this day. Their latest album, Super Extra Gravity, gets its stateside release on September 19th on Nettwerk, and shows a band with a bona fide legacy further exploring the ins and outs of dark indie rock.
