Love Is All

Sweden’s Love Is All have established themselves with a pair of albums and various EPs of bubblegum-sweet post-punk-pop songs with youthful, yelpy vocals and sing-song lyrics. Their latest full-length, the aptly-titled Two Thousand & Ten Injuries, is out March 22 following the band’s recent move from long-time label What’s Your Rapture? to Polyvinyl. For those still unfamiliar, although Love Is All sound like a bunch of riot grrls, they actually consist of mostly men – Nicholaus Sparding on guitar and vocals, James Ausfahrt on sax and keyboard, Markus Görsch on drums and Johan Lindwall on bass – with the irrepressibly rambunctious Josephine Olausson on vocals and keyboard. An excellent way for anyone to be introduced to the fluffy catchiness of Love Is All, preview track ‘Kungen’ sounds like a tidier, 21st century rehash of ’70s punk grrlies X-Ray Spex. On the surface the band are almost overwhelmingly jingly, kicking off with perfectly poppy “bah-bah-bah”s,but a few listens to Josephine’s riotous and occasionally drooling vocals reveals a true depth to the band that will leave you wanting more. Early purchasers of the new album may be able to score one of only 500 yellow-vinyl editions (exclusive to Europe). MP3 after the jump.
