Swedish bands frequently charm the ears of English-speaking folks, and Gefle, Sweden natives The Deer Tracks are no exception. The nifty electronica duo deconstructs traditional electro-pop by mixing in a wider range of influences and mid-tempo beats that are both atmospheric and trippy. Imagine a post-disco Eurocentric dance party at Grandma's log cabin, deep in the Scandinavian woods. I'm digging tunes like "Ram Ram," and lead singer Elin Lindfors reminds me of Paris Hilton. Check it out and see. Sparx & Yarms and Kurt Andrew open.
The Deer Tracks performs on Sunday, December 1, 9 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave., $6-$8, bugjar.com.
