Album Review

Love Is All were formed out of the remains of the indie pop group Girlfrendo, and they retain none of that band's slickness and polish in their new incarnation. They also take a giant step away from pop toward a more angular, jerky, and energetic brand of post-punk revivalism. Instead of Sarah Records, the touchstone is more like early Rough Trade. Instead of Heavenly, they look to Delta 5. What they don't do is sacrifice hooks and melody for noise or art's sake. Bathed in reverb and noise by producer Woodie Taylor, Nine Times That Same Song is a brilliant debut full of memorable songs and thrilling performances, equal parts ass-kicking and heartbreaking. From the opening blast of "Talk Talk Talk Talk," there's no doubt that Love Is All are plugged directly into an overloaded power source. On the uptempo tracks like "Spinning & Scratching" and "Ageing Has Never Been His Friend," the drums clatter like trashcan lids on pickup day, the bass and guitars scratch and scriggle wildly, the saxophone yaks up a storm, and Josephine Olausson's hyper vocals (think Clare Grogan with a switchblade in her tiny hand) ride the whole mess like a champion equestrian. When the group dials the energy back some on songs like "Turn the Radio Off" and the bewitching "Felt Tip," it is just as effective. Nine Times has no weak songs or half-baked ideas, and it sounds like the work of a band in total control of its sound and style. Put Love Is All firmly at the head of this class of post-punk revivalists.

buy these guys

there are many bands love is all sound like:

Life Without Buildings, Slits, X-Ray Spex, Kleelex/Liliput, Huggy Bear and YYYs. but they dont rip off any one particular sound. it's like all the energy and emotion of late 1970s girl punk and late 80s riot grrl with much more hook and without the politics

Good Album, Crappy iTunes

While iTunes is trying to stay hip and give the "latest" indie they ARE NOT. This is a great album and has been great for all those who chose to find out about it and listen to it before iTUnes "released" it on April 10, 2006. This is a travesty that iTunes can't keep up with "indie music" that they trump themselves on stocking so much of. I remcommend this to any punk/pop/rock lover who is willing to sit through fun eclectic mixes of beat-sy uptempo songs. And dont ignore the slower songs either, they are just as good.


Formed: Gothenburg, Sweden

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '00s

Swedish band Love Is All are comprised of Josephine Olausson (vocals, keyboard), Johan Lindwall (bass), Markus Görsch (drums), Fredrik Eriksson (saxophone), and Nicholaus Sparding (guitar/vocals). Olausson, Sparding, and Görsch had previously been members of Girlfriendo. The trio promptly regrouped after that band's demise and added Lindwall, who had recorded in a side project with Olausson and Sparding called Cat Skills. They finally added the missing piece with saxophone player Fredrik Eriksson....
