Niels Nielsen, who I believe is Swedish, plays straight up indie pop/rock with enough flair and hooks to turn heads. Rhythmic acoustic guitars at times mesh with electronic gurgles and squiggles and when Niels utilizes double tracked vocals ("Shooting Dogs") he can't help but evoke Elliott Smith, intentionally or not. I like it.
On his minimalist homepage you can download two 4 track EPs... visit through the link above.
+ paycheck (song for thillda) from Cornerstones of Hell EP
+ shooting dogs from Invest My Soul You Devil EP
