Headlights have been here before, most recently with their contribution to Christmas 2007. The latest appearance brings with it the first fruits from their new album ‘Some Racing, Some Stopping’ which was recorded entirely in a farmhouse in rural Illinois. And the change of location seems to have worked wonders, as you’ll see for yourself on first single ‘Cherry Tulips’. This is something that you’d expect from a bespeckled group of Swedish sorts such is its grasp on freewheeling pop arrangements. Lead singer Erin Fein is in particularly inspiring form as she gracefully glides over the dainty music with the skilled acumen of a Phil Spector starlet. Headlights play several dates at the SXSW music fest over the next week, so you can expect their stock to rise miraculously in its aftermath. KD
