[staff spinz] Icona Pop "Good For You" + "We Got The World" / 12.08 @ HOB

From this week's print edition of the Phoenix, Staff Spinz highlights what we're playing these days in our newsroom...

ICONA POP “Good For You” [Atlantic/Ten Records] Summer J-A-M “I Love It” launched Swedish electro pop duo Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt onto the playlists of every tastemaker from here to Stockholm, and now comes the tricky follow-up. New singles "We Got The World" goes into Top 40 pop overdrive, teetering on Ke$ha territory, while “Good For You,” the latest off the Iconic EP, is a bit breezier than its predecessor, carried by once-again sterling vocal hooks. We'll see the gals in full-room action on December 8 when they open for electro-pop princess Marina & the Diamonds at the House of Blues, which rules eight ways to Sunday until you realize it's the same night Trust and Icky Blossoms are at the Paradise. Oh and effin Spacehog is at Great Scott. Choices, Boston, choices.

In the meantime -- get it? -- check out the two new Icona singles on Soundcloud...
