Love Is All, 'Two Thousand and Ten Injuries' (Polyvinyl)

8
Two Thousand and Ten Injuries
Critical Mass
Label: Polyvinyl

by Jon Young

With her piercing squawk, Love Is All frontwoman Josephine Olausson could be a disruptive preteen deserving of serious medication, or a stretch in after-school detention. But her aim is true on the Swedish quintet's third full-length, a fizzy, exhilarating hybrid of bubblegum pop and bratty punk. For all her seeming eccentricity, Olausson is a crafty performer whose outbursts provide vividly specific snapshots of a full-throttle life. "Early Warning," a hyperactive bad-day saga that begins "Straight out of bed / I smashed my head on a bookshelf!" is worth the price of admission, and doesn't work when discussing recorded music alone.
