Acid House Kings / Alpaca Sports (Dufflecoat/Luxury Split 7")

A lovely split single released on Dufflecoat and Luxury Records featuring two poptastic Scandinavian bands. With Nordic Noir being all the rage these days... well you get the total opposite here! Acid House Kings' "I just called to say jag älskar dig" bops along with an infectious melody complete with sweet synths and a truly beautiful chorus.
Alpaca Sports' "telephone" reminds me a bit of the kind of up tempo indie pop songs that used to abound on Sarah on the classic days. A simple but lovely melody taking you to twee heaven. The song just gets better and better and you wish it would last forever. A lovely pair of songs and lovely artwork by Ray Kimura too!
