[Scandimania! & A Whole Lot of Otherwheres]
Hrm, My Viking Is Lookin' Rather Stout

A few months ago I applied to a certain Swedish company some of you may know as IKEA. Well, I bagged a job and start next week, so to celebrate I thought I'd post a mix. This mix. The Scandimania! Mix. Oh Sweden & Company, for such a cold, cold region, what makes your heart so warm? Next to Australia, you're my next source of happy. In fact, if Australia cans euphoria, the Baltic region crates the essence of care-free. Chocked to the brim with unique sounds, Scandimania! just gives a quick taste of different artists from Europe's chilly cap. Enjoysen ya?

The Scandimania! Mix (all songs are right click - save as & artist name leads to site)

Acid House Kings - Do What You Wanna Do
Buckaneers - Cold Morning
I'm From Barcelona - Jenny
Leopold - Work
Husky Rescue - Summertime Cowboy
Audrey - Views
Shout Out Louds - Comeback

Did I forget someone? Of course I did! So then, who do you like from the area?

I noticed you said that you're from Austin; are they opening an Ikea near Austin? I'm originally from there, and will go back at christmas time.

Heyo Laurie - The IKEA barely just opened today (15th), and it's located a bit north in Round Rock, the exit right before the also new outlet center.
