Live Video: Peter Bjorn and John

photo by Ron Henry

Peter Bjorn and John may be best known for their 2006 single “Young Folks,” a song whose carefree, infectious whistling provided the soundtrack for many summer parties. But the Swedes haven’t let their big hit overshadow the rest of their catalog, and with the release of 2011’s Gimme Some, the trio proves that they’ve got more vitality than ever (and a whole lot of cowbell). That’s saying something coming from a band with six albums under their belt, but Peter Bjorn and John have a knack for crafting hook-filled, addictive, summery rock. If you’ve been looking for the music to your barbeque, look no further than the videos below, as PB&J take to the KEXP studios for a thrilling live set.

    These guys are great. I had the pleasure of meeting them back in January when I was covering two secret house shows they were doing. One of them was actually in a tiny rehearsal room in a garage, the other at a wonderful loft space in downtown LA. They are a band that are as comfortable at any venue whether it be thousands of people at a festival or a couple of hundred literally inches away from them. I was fortunate enough to have contributed footage to Dezi Catarino’s mini-documentary- Peter, Bjorn and John: Digging Deeper which is a must see for any P,B and J fans. I look forward to seeing them as they swing down to do some shows in LA in a few months!

    Love KEXP- keep up the good work!
