Hummingbirds anyone?

Let's take a little departure from the usual electronic beats and blips you typically hear in Haizeeland and sample a bit of sweet Swedish folk-pop, courtesy of Theresa Andersson. I was on Aurgasm this morning and ran across this delightful little dose of sunshine. Theresa's voice fills me with a thousand little rainbow explosions and makes me nostaglic for days of yore. I'm not exactly sure what 'yore' is, but it's old school for sure.

The xylophone sounds in this song are magic.
