Stockholm's Last Lynx

The Eurasian Lynx is allegedly being reintroduced to Northern Europe. I don't know anything about that.

What I do know is that Last Lynx, a Stockholm quintet off of SoFo Records, seems to be introducing themselves quite well to the Scandinavian music scene, and to the Electric Mississippi as well. Their chief influences? 60's organ music and wolf howling.  I can hear a bit of both in "Luminous Blue," which is part Doors solo, part Western showdown, and on principle part Edward Sharpe. The texture on that organ is just ooh baby!
