song of the day - 5.22.09: peter bjorn and john - nothing to worry about

Peter Bjorn and John's new album Living Things has a lot of good stuff going on. It's an album worthy of year-end considerations. They've gotten a little more adventurous with their sound, and it's worked out just fine. Their Scandinavian charm is fully intact. My favorite track on the album is "Nothing to Worry About." This song rocks on it's own, but the video makes me love it even more. It's a mash-up of screaming children, hip hop beat, and PB&J's usual indifferent, dryly comedic vocals. Add the crazy Japanese dance/biker/Elvis gang from the video in the mix and you have a treat for all the senses! Ok, just sight and hearing. Those are definitely the top tier of senses though.
