Swedish hip-hop jazz swing [Aug. 5th, 2009|09:30 am]
drdeleto pointed this song out to me. I have no idea what's going on, but I think I love it.

Partial translation

Coming from the wrong part of town,
from the other side of the tracks
I grew up with Gypsies and Roma
playing accordion, wanting to tell my future
while my dad emptied a bottle of Explorer [cheap vodka]
taught myself to play guitar and them chords
Djangos quintet playing from the gramophone
with second hand suits in the closet
and brass bands live every night in the garden.

It started out good but then the problems came
stepped in the shit early, and the tax bill
I mean the responsibilities
the justice system
the likelihood is small, the unemployment office admits.
Maybe you should change your name or
sell your caravan or
knock out your gold tooth
but some time the prejudices must be overcome.

Banjo, sax, accordion and trombone. Not your average instrumentation.
