SWEDISH SOUND SYSTEM
While an exclamation mark in a band name does not always guarantee mad brilliance (are you still Panicking! at the Disco?), it does serve Movits! of Lulea, Sweden, quite well. Their winking combination of swing and hip-hop (oh, yeah . . . in Swedish) only sounds daunting in description: It's overtly giddy, it probably skirts logic in any language, and it's Colbert-approved (they appeared on The Colbert Report in 2009.) Fall into this pleasantly confusing, incongruous haze: There's really no other option by now.
