Postliljonen: “How Will I Know/All That We Had Is Lost”
Postliljonen are a Swedish group who I suppose are classified as “dream-pop”. This is the sort of fake, post-blog genre that annoys me on principle, despite my appreciation for dreams, pop and coming up with obnoxious names to describe stuff.
The trio covered Whitney Houston‘s “How Will I Know”, then mashed it up with their own original tune “All That We Had Is Lost”. The results aren’t particularly mind-blowing (much as I love ‘em), but it’s a nice variation of a pop favorite for the mopey fall/winter “listening to Vespertine on repeat” season.
If you’d prefer something upbeat, I’d recommend downloading their lazy electro-rock tinged track “We Raise Our Hearts”. The instrumental reminds me a bit of Gorillaz “On Melancholy Hill“, and it’s one step away from being in iPod commercials… But hey, I’m okay with that.
