T'other day I was sent a remix of Nike & The Dove's 'DJ, Ease My Mind' by Bi-Polar Men. I'm not sure if this was because I had signed up to a mailing list, or if they somehow found me, but I hadn't heard of either of these groups.
But, boy-howdy am I glad to have made their acquaintance!
For those like me who don't know, Niki & The Dove hail from almighty Sweden, and you can definitely sense a hint of, or maybe a lot of, Lykke Li and Karin Dreijer Andersson (maybe it's just the accent, but I like it. Lots), but who's complaining?
Not me, with booming, anthemic choruses and whimsical electro-pop that can help to lift you out of the November gloom.

It also somewhat reminded me of Baron Von Luxxury's remix of Little Boots' 'Meddle.'
