Biography

When the members of Love Is All returned home to Gothenburg, Sweden after their spring 2009 tour, the quintet found itself in familiar surroundings but under strange circumstances.

After releasing two critically acclaimed full lengths (Nine Times That Same Song, A Hundred Things Keep Me Up at Night) and several EPs on New York-based What's Your Rupture?, Love Is All had no record ... Read more in Amazon's Love Is All Store

4.0 out of 5 stars A genuinely exciting new band 13 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
You wouldn't have guessed it from their sweet name, but Sweden's Love Is All have little in common with their country's current most talked-about indie exports like The Concretes and The Radio Dept. Instead, they favour the kind of noisy punk-funk not seen since LCD Soundsystem's debut album over a year ago, with the added bonus of having a full-time saxophone player (which works brilliantly as a backdrop, but occasionally becomes annoying when drowning out the guitar). Still, from the opening battle cry of "one more time!" on first song 'Talk Talk Talk Talk', it's clear Love Is All are providing the kind of feel-good, instantly exciting punky racket we haven't heard done properly for an annoyingly long time.

Their debut album has been described rather lazily as 'lo-fi' because it was recorded in a tiny room somewhere obscure in Sweden, but that overused term belies the meticulous genre-splicing underneath the choas. The infectious basslines and jerky saxophone turn 'Busy Doing Nothing' and 'Ageing Had Never Been His Best Friend' into indie dancefloor anthems-in-waiting. They're then juxtaposed with gorgeous soundscaping on 'Felt Tip' and 'Turn The Radio Off'- beautiful, reflective love songs in which the saxophone innovatively replaces a string section and Josephine's riot-grrl growl suddenly turns all wistful. These incredible slower tracks simply demonstrate Love Is All's versatility and potential (which has in some ways already been fulfilled) to effortlessly hop across genres. But if it's shouty punk-funk tunes with cowbells, staccatto guiars and infectious basslines you want, there's no shortage of those either.

The music may be incredibly diverse, but lyrically, love really is all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting! Poor sound quality! 26 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Buy it and impress your friends, it's an extremely rewarding album that actually makes you feel a bit excited about this band. Ageing Had Never Been His Friend merits a 5th star but the overall sound quality doesn't make for great listening in places.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a Punt 2 Sep 2006
By JB
Format:Audio CD
I came to Love is All through Rough Trade's Indiepop compilation. After I'd listened through it a few times I found that I kept coming back to Spinning and Scratching as the stand-out track on the album. Then after searching the internet for a while I found a promising NME review of Make Out Fall Out Make Up - and finally a few months later this album came out. It's true that the sound quality isn't great, there's too much vocal reverb, and the album's slightly uneven (Used Goods is AWFUL), but there's some great stuff .... Ageing Had Never Been His Friend, Felt Tip, Make Out .... and the brilliant Spinning and Scratching still tops it for me when it's really blasted out. Into weird Swedish Indie - or just something a bit different? Give it a Go!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! 3 July 2006
By English Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've always had a special place in my heart reserved for new Swedish musicians. I won't go as far as saying that it started with Abba or even admit that I was alive when they stormed the world. But what I will say is that Love Is All is perhaps the most exciting rock outfit to surface in the last several years. This is one of those albums that you listen to for the sake of musical harmony and not much else. I've probably listened to this album in its entirety close to 50 times in the last week but still don't even know the names of any of the songs. Because when you're listening to good music, who cares about the little things. But seriously, I hate remembering titles of songs I like and in Love Is All's case, I'd need to remember the title to all 10 tracks because every song on this debut album is amazing. I first heard Love Is All on college radio last month while scrolling thru the left side of my dial when all of the sudden, "Felt Tip" came on and I quickly became ecstatic about the song that this DJ was playing in her set. I love Blondie's first album, where Deborah Harry did "X Offender" so perfectly, you know straight up rock music with a female vocalist - exactly how I love it! Close to 30 years later, I've found an album just as exciting in 'Nine Times That Same Song' in a similar manner. Oh, look at that, I burnt my food in the other room while writing this review; darnit! Suffice to say, I'm still loving Love Is All!

5.0 out of 5 stars A 100 times better than Tilly and the Wall 17 Oct 2008
By grasshopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, such negativity from jerseygirl! Love is All is another great pop group from Sweden which makes music to rival the best of the 80's Rough Trade bands. While they may not be for everyone they certainly are an original and exciting band. If you like the Raincoats, Kleenex, Liliput, this is the best modern band in that vein going. There new record also comes out in November. I recommend this highly!
4.0 out of 5 stars Wow. What Is Going On Here? 15 May 2006
By Master Gryphon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Two minutes into the first song (of ten), you're not sure what you signed up for and might wonder if they'll literally trip through the rush of noise and urgent singing, by Josephine Olausson, nine more times. They don't. It's a charming kind of mess, apparently mixed loud with distortion for effect, amazing, heavy on the reverb and short on details like a wall of sound that's been stapled over with shag carpeting.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Day X-Ray Spex 25 Jun 2008
By Elaine Ellerton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The similarity between Love is All and X-Ray Spex is undeniable. However, for those of you who find X-Ray Spex a little grating and unrefined, Love is All fixes that. The production is good and clear and her voice is not quite as, well, annoying as that in X-Ray Spex (I actually love that about X-Ray). This is one of my favourite albums from that year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please stop! 9 May 2007
By jerseygirl_librarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had the pleasure (snick snick) of seeing this band live at a Tilly and the Wall concert. I have to say it, they were awful! Yes the band is from Sweden and play horns... but so do a lot of bands before for them. They are unoriginal and not even good abstract art. The lead singer just stood there looking at the corner of the wall and attempting to sing - which sounded more like screaming. Everytime they paused between songs people said under their breath "thank God! please let that be the last one". Being very open to the arts and different things I decided to try their musical cd. Wow, not a difference in any sense. I would pass up on this band as this is going to be a one hit wonder if that. If you are looking for something similar I recommend Tilly and The Wall and Pony Up! from Canada.

Blah to this band!! ugh..
