Details are still scant here, but the confirmed list of artists involved in Smile points to a rising Swedish indie-electronic powerhouse. Smile is the newly formed group of Björn Yttling, from Peter Bjorn and John, and Joakim Ahlund from Teddybears. They're instrumental-only so far, but nonetheless ecstatic. What's even more exciting is the band's label, Ingrid, a joint effort between Lykke Li, Miike Snow, Peter Bjorn and John and a few of their friends. "Clean Gloves, Dirty Hands," which is thankfully excellent, will feature on Ingrid's first release, a 15-track compilation, out later this month and up for preorder now.
