Hello. This is Tom from indie-mp3, one of many bloggers blogsitting for Laura whilst she is away in China. I thought I would write a quick piece on a band that is never far away from my stereo, pc or mp3 player!

The Acid House Kings have nothing to do with electro, techno or trance. They are without doubt Sweden's premier indie pop outfit and have been making luscious tunes for well over a decade. Inspired by the English 1980's independent music scene they have blended this with a love of Phil Spector inspired 60's girl bands. And if you were a mad professor you would shout "eureka" as this forumla works!

The band have released five albums and six singles since 1992's Play Pop! EP and members appear in other bands such as Club 8, Poprace and The Legends. I would recommend getting hold of Mondays are like Tuesdays and Tuesdays are like Wednesdays (2002) or Sing along with Acid House Kings (2005) for starters. Here is a track each from both albums:

Acid House Kings - Sunday Morning
Acid House Kings - Do What You Wanna Do

The band have also covered the Loveninjas' track Keep Your Love. It's taken from their last release Do What You Wanna Do EP which was released earlier this year.

Sweden is a hot bed of indie-pop right now. If you want to find out more this is an introduction I wrote for the Take Your Medicine blog earlier this year.
