There's a song on here called "Som en b-sida om sommaren" ("Like a b-side in summer") and that pretty well encapsulates this record. Pick a hot and steamy night. String some inflatable palm trees with lights. Fill a kiddie pool with ice & beer & soda and your backyard with friends. Imagine sand between your toes. Pop this one in your boombox and start doing the twist. All instrumental, it's part silly, part surf, part B-52s, part casios, occassionally a little annoying, but mostly just fun fun fun. Let the summer dance parties begin.
