MP3 The Swedes - Photolab 9000
Sounds like the best set of 70''s Pop Rock you''ve ever heard played in the 21st century. Strong melodies and massive choruses equally supported by guitar and lead analog synth.

ROCK: 70''s Rock, POP: New Wave
The Swedes are Chris Edwards (keyboards), Phil Crain(bass), Phil Harbut (drums), and Jon Gray (guitar & vocals). We''ve been playing together for about two years and have been told that we sound like The Cars, Thin Lizzy, T-Rex, and Squeeze. We''ve been told that we sound like other bands, too, but we didn''t like them so we didn''t list them here.
Our premiere album "Photolab 9000" has just been released independently and people other than our moms seem to like it, too! Ed Gross of "The Deli" magazine, writes: "Photolab 9000 stands up well with the other albums you might have heard in London 25 years ago, and as a result it is also one of the best New York records I''ve heard this year."
Phil Crain is Oklahomanian. Chris, a native of Providence, RI, pitched his tent in L.A. for a few years before finally migrating back East, turning up in NYC. Phil Harbut is from Canadia, Vancouver-style, and just landed in the city toward the end of 2003. Jon moved to New York from Chapel Hill, NC about five years ago. Since then, it''s been rock shows, writing songs, and mastering the art of the photo booth.
