Release date: Columbia Website: http://www.myspace.com/miikesnow Rarely does Radio 1 hype manifest itself into more than just a one hit wonder, but widespread praise for Miike Snow’s live show suggests that on this occasion it just might be worth tuning in to. Animal’s radio edit is a catchy, playful if repetitive 3:40 of straight up Swedish electro pop. That the previous sentence leaves little else to mention functions as both succinct praise and damning criticism; conversely it functions as one or the other depending on taste. At the risk of being too succinct I suggest a listen, a buy, and expectations that the forthcoming album will be harmless, fun, pleasing and quite possibly utterly underwhelming. Rating: 6.5/10
