Sing Along with Acid House Kings is the fourth studio album by Swedish indie pop band Acid House Kings. It was released on 20 April 2005 by Labrador Records. All tracks written by Johan Angergård and Niklas Angergård, except where noted.
The album is thrilling in a low-key and sweet manner, filled with songs that you'll be humming for weeks. The gentle "That's Because You Drive" starts the album off in the usual (quite nice) AHK fashion. The Angergard brothers have delivered an indie pop gem with Sing Along; shiny and bright enough to hook you, deep and emotional enough to reel you in, it's the kind of record you play for your friends, feature on your blog, and play over and over even when no one is around. As a bonus the record comes with a bonus disc with a very witty premise.
Acid House Kings are a Swedish indie pop band. They were founded in 1991 by Joakim Ödlund (also in the bands Poprace, Double Dan, and Starlet) and brothers Niklas (Red Sleeping Beauty) and Johan Angergård (Club 8, The Legends, Poprace). With the release of their first album, Pop, Look & Listen, they supposedly decided on a 10-year plan to release an album every five years to have a trilogy of albums released by the year 2002, a plan that eventually worked out exactly as scheduled.
Acid House Kings' fifth LP isn't menacing, once you get past the absolutely terrifying cover. Do they have Olan Mills in Sweden? Is it haunted? The eyes just follow you. But visions of some wainscoted dystopia where bands wear turtlenecks and play acoustic Kraftwerk medleys are dispelled as "That's How You Drive Me" pops in like a pacifier, with all of the comfort and none of the sucking.
Swedish indie pop group Acid House Kings, by the year 2002, already had two albums under their collective belt. But it wasn't until third album "Mondays Are Like Tuesdays and Tuesdays Are Like Wednesdays" that the band honed their distinctive twee style into a cohesive mixture of delirious hand claps, sunny guitar melodies, and late night fireside lyrics. You probably wouldn't guess that from their moniker, which admittedly recalls some obscure stoned seventies garage rock group rather than a cheery European twee band. Also included are a couple of promotional music videos.
follows in the twee footsteps of early Belle and Sebastian: the album is packed with fey harmonies and soothing melodies that are most effective when spearheaded by the coy voice of Julia Lannerhiem, whose delivery charmingly veers between heartbroken and just plain bored.
