Today folks have been discussing the change in sound the Dodos underwent at the hands (and click tracks?) of Seattle producer Phil Ek. Now you get a chance to hear what the Shout Out Louds sound like after emerging from the same studio (hint: no string section, bells, whistles). The streamlined, upbeat (hang in there) “Walls” is the lead track from Work, Swedish quintet’s forthcoming follow-up to Our Ill Wills. You also get to see what the Shout Out Louds look like in that aforementioned studio in this behind-the-scenes, sleepless-in-Seattle Ted Malmros-directed video.

Work is out 2/23 via Merge. The band’s performing an album-release show at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg on 3/1. This is what Work looks like:

  4. I really wonder whose address and phone number are on that scrap of paper. Or rather, I wonder how many people have called the number to find out.

  5. this is a pretty good song. I like it. I dunno how they could top Our Ill Wills, but it’d be super rad if they somehow managed to.
