- Country-past and country-present of Melodifestivalen - Cookies n Beans
and Abalone Dots relelase new albums almost at the same time. Abalone
Dots have already presented their "Chocolate & Cigarettes" last week
but as we didn't check it yet let's talk about the first girls.
Though taking part in MF-2009 hasn't brought a big success to the band the album "Big, Borrow and Steal" released afterwards has entered Top-10. Swedish audience has praised these sweet ladies with original voices and they pay back with another album "Go Tell The World" to be out on May 2nd.
The first single from it that was already premiered on the radio is "The First Step", very calm and kind example of European melancholic acoustic pop with very touching vocal line, you can still feel country-influences but not as much as you'd expect.
