New York-based indie label Whatâ€™s Your Rupture has been busting out some of the best punk and classics-sounding rock records Iâ€™ve heard in awhile. The label is fresh and everything you want an indie label to be: rough and tough with a heart of gold â€” no strings attached.
The latest in WYRâ€™s line up is a Swedish band called Love Is All and I canâ€™t get enough of their new record, Nine Times That Same Song. This record is SUCH a good time, soulful punk at its tightest. A sax blasts though the album, adding an awesome component to an already amazing sound. Thereâ€™s no doubt that Josephine Olausson's punctuating vocals will get some Yeah Yeah Yeahâ€™s comparisons. But is that a bad thing? Hell no.
Recommended tracks: "Talk Talk Talk" and "Busy Doing Nothing."
Buy the record at Insound or drop into Rocks In Your Head, a great record store in Soho, NYC where Whatâ€™s Your Ruptureâ€™s founder works. They have plenty of copies there. (map)
