Love Is All

Listening to the Swedish five-piece Love Is All gives you the same frenetic feeling that a sugar rush does. On the band’s third full-length, Two Thousand and Ten Injuries, lead singer Josephine Olausson has toned down the screechiness of her vocals since the band’s 2005 debut Nine Times the Same Song, but she still sounds like a bratty little girl giving you too much sass. The music is packed with buzzy guitars and super-high energy level but breaks from the standard pop-punk formula with quirks like a saxophone player and lightly bouncy melodies. Such twists give Love Is All’s songs a snappiness and an edge over fellow Swedish female-fronted pop-punk outfit the Sounds. With Princeton. ERIN K. THOMPSON
