So we're kinda sad that we started this little blog thing a bit too late to post a list of our favorite albums of 2007- 'cuz we both felt like we had a great year where music is concerned. So to make up for that, here's a track from an album that would have been right at the top of my list. It's called At the Ballroom, and it's the third full-length from Sweden's indie-pop duo The Moonbabies. Why do I like it so much? Maybe I'm a sucker for the girl/guy vocal dynamic that's so hot right now, or maybe it's the straight-up sonic pop bliss they cram into every song, or maybe I just really like the idea of lunar infants making music among us. There's really no way of telling. But of one thing we can be sure: this is great music.

And of this we can also be sure: that this is one strange music video. It's for the song Take Me to the Ballroom, also from said fantastic album. Enjoy.
