Fans of Sonic Youth or the Brian Jonestown Massacre should warm quickly to Sweden’s Youngteam. ‘Summertime’ is one example of the kind of twisted rock you can expect from their latest record ‘Daydreamer’. I’ve blabbed about them before but this track deserves a spin!

‘Summertime’ lulls you into a false sense of security during the gated introduction… then explodes in your face! The tremolo riding guitar work gives way to simple but catchy vocals. And there are heaps of catchy vocals on ‘Daydreamer’, Youngteam regularly switch between male and female singing duties when it suits. Another stand out is ‘Your Love’ which illustrates this point.

Here’s hoping more new music from Youngteam isn’t far away, in the meantime visit their official site here or connect @ Myspace.
