The Hives


Evidently recovered from whatever led them to hire the Neptunes to produce 2007’s The Black and White Album, these Swedish garage guys get back to the bare-bones business they know best on the recently release Lex Hives. “Come on!” frontman Pelle Almqvist shouts approximately 700 times in the first song, and his bandmates never stop trying to keep up. With L.A. surf-punk brats FIDLAR, whose name rather excellently stands for “Fuck it, dog—life’s a risk.”
