Johnossi on tour

For fans of Ikea, Ace of Base, Swedish Fish, Jens Lekman (who just put out a new album of his own), and all other things Swedish, check out the country's latest export: Johnossi. Except if you listen to them, Swedish would be the last adjective that comes to mind. With a command of English better than many Americans I know, and a hard hitting get-down-and-jam bluesy sound, you'd swear that John and Ossi, the duo that comprises the band, were straight from the States.

If your curiosity is piqued, it's not too late to check them out opening for Shout Out Louds on their fall tour (check remaining dates below).
