Sing Along With The Acid House Kings

As many of you already know, I am an avid fan of the Swedish indie rock scene (or rather the Swedish music scene in general). Today, I have another great Swedish band to tell you about, also part of Labrador Records (in my opinion, the best Swedish label).

The Acid House Kings make feel good music, the kind that makes you think of everything good in the world. It's the kind of music that is infectiously delightful, young, fresh-you'll feel a little silly perhaps but you shouldn't. AHK laces lollipop beats over the sweet and innocent vocals of Julia Lannerheim, and don't forget about the delicious harmonies. I don't think AHK take themselves too seriously, and that's what makes the music so rewarding. They're not going to deliver the most profound lyrics you've heard. Nevertheless, their message is quite clear and significant in our "It's-cool-to-be-depressed" world: Put a smile on your face, (wo)man! From that respect, they're dead on.

Go out (or stay in) and buy Sing Along with the Acid House Kings.

Listen to This Heart is a Stone (highly recommended).
Listen to Sunday Morning.
