Acid House Kings

A few months ago, I posted about the Swedish garage pop band, The Legends, and their great album Up Against the Legends. Well, that album has only grown on me since to the point where I hear at least a few tunes from it each day.

So, I started poking around this internet-thingy to see what else they have going on. It turns out that Johan AngergÄrd of The Legends also play in another band called Acid House Kings. The stuff lacks the rocking punch of The Legends' fuzzy guitars but if you like mellow Swedish indie pop, then Acid House Kings are a-ok. The Acid House Kings have also been around a lot longer with albums going back to 1992.

This year, Acid House Kings released their fifth album, Sing Along with Acid House Kings which is available in the US via TwentySomething Records. I don't know how many copies they've sold but the first 2,000 copies come with the karaoke DVD. Who the hell thought of that promotion?
