The Legends, 'Over and Over' (Labrador/Caroline)

8
Over and Over
Critical Mass
Label: Labrador/Caroline

by Barry Walters

No one does depression like the Swedes, except maybe for the Brits of yore. Stockholm's Johan Angergård tries to master his pain by paying tribute to the U.K. gloom-pop heroes who soundtracked his childhood: Applying shrieking guitar feedback to spun-sugar melodies like razor blades cutting across smooth teenage skin, he exaggerates the Jesus and Mary Chain extremes of "Seconds Away," a love song to the antidepressant Tryptizol. Song after song, he slices away at his sadness until the clouds lift and a glockenspiel twinkles. The effect is so not corny.
