CMJ 2k6 Preview: Kristoffer Ragnstam

Is it just me or has there always been a certain type of band that came out of Sweden? No matter what the music, the feeling always evokes the beautiful landscape of the tundra, but Kristoffer Ragnstam recalls a beauty of a different kind. He is equal parts the passion of Ted Leo, the pure pop of Spoon and the expert eclecticism of Beck, a sound that he has spent years crafting. Look for the full-length Sweet Bills in March [an EP is digitally available now], and check out his CMJ show on Nov. 4th at the Alphabet Lounge.
