A Camp

When: Sun., June 14, 8 p.m. 2009

Even though most people will remember the Cardigans and its slinky singer Nina Persson for the frothy mid-1990s smash "Lovefool," the Swedish outfit carried on well into the new millennium. A Camp is Persson's side project that got its start back in 2001 with a country-flavored debut produced by Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous and featured contributions by Persson's now-husband Nathan Larson of Shudder to Think. While that project slipped under the radar, the band's sophomore bow Colonia finds Persson, Larson and Linkous regrouping behind songs that reverberate with girl-group harmonies and baroque horn arrangements while sardonic allusions are made between American colonialism and love -- Max Martin it ain't. A Camp will be showcasing the dark side of Swedish pop at the Independent (628 San Divisadero St., San Francisco) on Sunday, June 14. 8 p.m., $17.
