A Most Aesthetically Pleasing Art Form, Museum of Bellas Artes.

A Most Aesthetically Pleasing Art Form, Museum of Bellas Artes.

Remember electronically inclined Stockholm baroque-pop troop Museum of Bellas Artes? They of the reprehensibly neglected Days Ahead of 2010? No? Well you missed an exhilarating Scandipop trick in that case, for it was doubtless one of the most commendable extended-plays of that particular year. We’d implore you go wallow in the nebulous synthetic billows of Watch the Glow, the big Balearic beat majesty of its title track, or the insouciantly ecstatic throwback glitz of Paloma posthaste if so, but before you go scuttling off to Spotify, please do lay ears on carnivalesque comeback single Twine below.

For simultaneously embodying both the pomp of Madonna long before the career-ravaging MDNA kicked in and the blasé naïveté of kitsch ingénue Gabriele Kerner, and then filtering the fusion through the limitless sonic vision of Joanna Herskovits, Leonard Öhman and Alice Luther’s compatriots Björn & Benny, Twine is not only a complex tangle of cultural histories, but so too a thoroughly progressive listen that, as a preemptive strike, bodes pretty auspiciously for the future. And now you may go ogle all those aesthetically pleasing art forms of yore…

Museum of Bellas Artes’ long-awaited début full-length, Pieces, is anticipated November 11th via Best Fit Recordings.
