Ok, so I don't even know of a handful active local bands, but from what little I have heard and seen, these guys are definitly my favorites.
The four guys of ...and everyone fell asleep formed the band in 2005. With three of them having a background in jazz (they even use a double bass!), their quite melancholic songs often have a very nice jazzy feeling to them. And I really like the singer's voice.
Don't miss the song below and go visit their MySpace for more. A new song should be available there in not too long ^^

If you happen to be in Linköping on Wednesday (Dec. 20), I'd suggest a visit to Passagen at 19.00 for an evening of young experimental sounds from ...and everyone fell asleep and Wildbirds & Peacedrums ^_^
