The Legends

From the land of Sweden, the Legends confound a bit. Originally touted as a 9-piece, the band counted 3-4 gals who clapped along to their songs as the percussion section. But with their latest release, Public Radio, they are now a one man band. Confusing.
The first record, Up Against the Legends was my favorite record of 2004. It's perfect; a mix of Motown girl group melodies and fuzzy Jesus and Marychain ambience. The new record is less Motown with more tunes reminiscent of the Cure, and it's good, but it still hasn't grown on me. Definitely not like the first one did. The official count? Up Against The Legends: 10; Public Radio: 6. But this could change. I'll keep you posted.

See if you can guess which of the following is from which album.

The Legends- He Knows the Sun
The Legends- Call It Ours
