    A massive 30-person collective (who are in fact from Jonkoping, Sweden; the name is a tribute to the catchphrase of Manuel, the much-abused Spanish waiter in the classic sitcom FAWLTY TOWERS) led by singer-songwriter Emanuel Lundgren, I'm From Barcelona return with their second album. The group's 2006 debut, LET ME INTRODUCE MY FRIENDS, was a cheerful blast of sunshiny twee pop, but from the title on down, WHO KILLED HARRY HOUDINI? is a more melancholy affair. The band's trademark choral vocals and oddball arrangements remain on tracks like "Paper Planes" and "Gunhild" (featuring guest singer Soko), but the overall mood is less determinedly upbeat.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.95) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Lundgren is] a softer yet more confident singer on grand ballads like 'Andy,' and his choir now adorns rather than simply bolsters him."
    Blender (Magazine) (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Despite all the players, these lush songs are transitory, not bombastic or cluttered. Sometimes they're even funny; the album ends with a glammy new-wave ode to a 'giant silver Labrador'..."
    Paste (magazine) (p.52) - "'Mingus,' a jaunty pop ditty with chiming glockenspiel and la-la-la-ing female singers, is reminscent of Spector's early experiments inflating teenage heartbreak to operatic proportions."
