ACKERMANS, THE: Nobody Knows Us Better Than: LP

Swedish power pop! That’s like saying East Bay pop punk! Or Czechoslovakian polka punk! This is pretty decent stuff, in the Hives vein. Nothing to wet your pants about, but if you love all this stuff, you’ll definitely need to get this. Me, I suffer from Yum Yums Dented Head Syndrome (YYDHS). Every time I hear Swedish power pop I expect it to be as good as the mighty Yum Yums, and when it’s not I bash my head against the wall. If this were a cereal, it’d be Alpha Bits.
