Nordic songstress Monica Birkenes (aka Mr Little Jeans) first appeared on Hype Machine in late 2010. But it was her 2011 cover of Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" that established her as a blogger favorite, racking up 25k user 'hearts' in the process. On her long-awaited debut album, she writes, sings and even takes a hand in production, crystallizing her unique take on modern electronic pop music.
