Love is All
Nothing says '80s punk and New Wave like a sax solo: X-Ray Spex, Adam & the Ants, Siouxsie. Swedish group Love is All's very signature quasi-'80s sound was dramatically shaped by the sax, but not anymore. For the new Two Thousand and Ten Injuries, horn wrangler Fredrik Eriksson flew the coop. What remains is (mostly) still the same: Spastic frontwoman/keyboardist Josephine Olausson's emphatic shout-sing, drummer Markus Görsch's disco-punk beats, and guitar jangles and spirals that retrofit the sounds of Madness, Spex, and the Clean. With Crystal Stilts.
