If The Jesus and Mary Chain could be combined with Belle & Sebastian, and actually work -- Sambassadeur would be the result. This fabulous Swedish band with a lo-fi energy is signed to a favorite label of ours, Labrador Records -- where some other great bands on their roster include: The Radio Dept, Acid House Kings, and Douglas Heart. Sambassadeur hasn't had an official US tour as of yet, but hopefully will set one up soon.
For now you can download these standout tracks from their self-titled debut and a couple others on their official website:
[Mp3] Sambassadeur - Sense of Sound
[Mp3] Sambassadeur - If Rain
Befriend them on their myspace
