movitsA couple of weeks ago I joked on Facebook that the Swedish Government had officially announced that from here on out, their sole products of export would be death metal albums, ABBA reissues, and Movits! albums. Sadly, few people actually understood the humor there, but a new Movits! album was released this month. For the unfamiliar, the band is curious beast – an odd little mixture of hip-hop, jazz, and pop – and yes, it’s in Swedish. In fact, Movits! joins RAMMSTEIN and BRUJERIA in a select group of artists that sing in a language that I don’t understand, but listen to quite frequently.

Picking up where their 2008 release Äppelknyckarjazz left off, Out of my Head not only continues the legacy of uniquely quirky, ass-shaking grooves, but improves upon it as well.

There’s little bits of English tossed in, such as the “Ladies and Gentlemen…” at the beginning of Sammy Davis Jr. (the first single), but don’t let the language barrier deter you – Movits! commands to be heard, and done so in a loud fashion. Like a David Holmes soundtrack with elven gibberish on the top, Out of My Head is a record worthy of your time, and one that should inspire conversation and rhythmic twitching.

Rating: 4/5
