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

Product Description

Product Description

Brand new album from SWEDEN's Love Is All, now on Polyvinyl, Two Thousand And Ten Injuries is an eclectic collection of pop melodies, anchored by New Wave and punk rock rhythms, that are as refined as they are unpredictable. Highlights of the 12 track set include the art punk urgency of 'Bigger, Bolder,' the lilting pop of 'Never Now,' the Slits-like reggae of 'False Pretense' and the classic New Wave rallying cry found in 'Dust.' Two Thousand And Ten Injuries was produced, recorded and mixed at the band's home studio, Bananaflux, during the summer of 2009 by Love is All and Wyatt Cusick (ex-member of The Aislers Set and Trackstar). All told, Two Thousand And Ten Injuries successfully manages to be Love Is All's most adventurous, and dare we say, accessible, album yet.

BBC Review

This is a great album: smart, thrilling, bouncy, imaginative, sussed, melodic, fiery, punchy, passionate, repetitive, and immersed in the technology of 2010 but the ideology of the 60s and late 70s (and early 90s Olympia, if we’re going to be exact). There are plenty of guitar hooks that do just that (hook), and a glut of soaring sky-bound trembling noises that manage to do everything Radiohead promise but never deliver – entertain. 

Singer Josephine Olausson sounds like a less precious Claire Grogan (Altered Images) – she’s equally as joyful as she articulates personal despair. She also recalls Gina Birch (The Raincoats) and wrongly forgotten singer Wendy Morgan of Brighton’s early 90s indie star-cleaners The Popguns, and you can really tell she’s from Sweden despite all the rush and clamour and such, the same way you can really tell The Concretes and Those Dancing Days are from Sweden. Being English, this is a massive plus. Sometimes (on Less Than Thrilled, for example), she affects a slight lisp as she turns ferocious, but that’s okay. It really is.

Her band dance and quickstep around her mannerisms with deftness and the assurance that only comes from having released two albums already – Two Thousand and Ten Injuries is this five-piece’s third. Drums clatter with 60s garage rock (The Rats, The Trashmen) finality. Bass scatters and tosses aside with post-Riot Grrrl (and early Rough Trade) duality. Everything is burned clean, fresh for the pickings – the lovesick A Side in a Bed, the hectoring Again, Again, the truly final cascades of album closer Take Your Time (close your eyes, count to 10 and dream, and it could be one of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ finest moments).

This is such a great album.

The boy-girl harmonies on the tumultuous, accident-prone Early Warnings are crying out for a modern-age John Peel to play them 30 times in a row, on prime-time BBC and catapult them into the firmament of NME front covers, blanket coverage on 6 Music and Drowned in Sound beer-mats.

Where is the new John Peel we were promised, anyway? --Everett True

Format: Audio CD
Love Is All are a sassy little five-piece band from Sweden.
Their new album 'Two Thousand and Ten Injuries', rather than
doing any kind of damage to the world or bringing misery to
our ears, is a perfectly-formed collection of twelve punk-pop
gems which arrives from the Cold North like a breath of fresh air.

Singer Josephine Olausson sounds like a pixie. Her joyfully cutesy
voice contrasts perfectly with the abrasive sounds thrown out by
her musical partners in crime (Nicholaus Sparding/vocals & guitar,
Johan Lindwall/bass, Frederik Erikkson/sax and Markus Gorsch/drums).

None of the songs last much more than three minutes but their
raucous concentrated energy more than makes up for their brevity.

The clickety-clackety rhythm of 'Less Than Thrilled' hurtles along
at breakneck speed. Ms Olausson holds on for dear life, buoyed-up
by some delightfully see-sawing harmonies.

The spirit of Bow Wow Wow lives on in songs like the cranky
'Early Warnings' and 'Again, Again'. Short and sweet and raw.

The twee sixties tune and Mamas and Papas vocal cadences of
'Kungen' pins down a time and a place which the band are far
too young to ever have known. They have both learned their
lessons well and brought something uniquely their own to the mix.

The viciously angular guitar shards of 'Dust' thinly disguise
the rather charming folksy melody romping along just below the
surface. Mr Gorsch's rumbustious drumming deserves especial praise!

The album concludes with a curiously magical mid-paced piece
entitled 'Take Your Time'. A lovely little misty glimpse of
fairyland to counter the pagan rites echoing still in our bones.

Love Is All make a gloriously big little noise. I'm all for it!

Recommended.

Do you like unique music?

Female vocals?

Fun music that get's you rocking?

Try this album!! It offers a breath of fresh air in a stagnant musical world. Love Is All are masters of fun, engrossing tunes. The singer has a slight accent, and a very unique singing style. The music is varied and almost never slows down, while keeping a sentimentality that you rarely hear.

Great album! I listened to it non-stop after I got it.
