Acid House Kings
Acid House Kings
On the second, Advantage Acid House Kings (1997), the aim was to make a The Smiths-for-very-sunny-days sort of album. This sort of succeeded, and the band rate it 3.8 out of 5. In 2001, the band built their own, now famous, Summersound Studios. Here, Acid House Kings could spend endless amounts of time to create the more sophisticated third album Mondays are like Tuesdays and Tuesdays are like Wednesdays (2002). Former guest vocalist and present sister-in-law Julia Lannerheim was introduced as a full time member while Joakim Ödlund never showed up for recordings (his house was too far away from the studio).
It’s an easy, breezy, beautiful album and the band rate 4.2 out of 5. Spurred by the quality of “Mondays…”, Acid House Kings set out to break their own five years between albums record, while still yet again refining the meaning of pop music. The fourth album, Sing along with Acid House Kings (2005), is to date the crown jewel in the Acid House Kings catalogue and a should-have-been-in-the-Guinness-World-Records-book since it included a karaoke-DVD (yes, a karaoke-DVD) with the first 2000 copies. The press release stated untrendy is the new trend, while the music showed an unusual combination of sophistication and catchiness. The band rate the album 4.4 out of 5. The newly-trimmed down trio of the Angergård brothers and Lannerheim released their latest effort Music Sounds Better With You in March 2011. Site: Twitter Read more on Last.fm.
