Anyone for some Scandinavian lo-fi pop? Look no further than Swedish musician Shitkid. The rudey name might dissuade some stations from giving this experimental electronica musician airtime, but that’d be their loss.

Waste of Time chimes with the disaffected youth in me; half-hearted vocals contrast with a backdrop of impassioned synth beats, while FARMBOY is a wonderfully trippy jaunt into a psychedelic fairytale love story with a less than ideal ending. Dream Sequence is just that – as long as your dreams are also soundtracked by a kid yelling into one of those echoey toy microphones from the ‘90s. Shitkid might sound annoyingly childlike on first listen, but you’d be mistaken to think they’re anything less than captivatingly and unnervingly creepy.
