The Soundtrack of Our Lives
The members of the Soundtrack of Our Lives have been putting out psychedelic powerhouse rock since the 1980s. While most of their Swedish brethren were counting down the minutes to the next Euro-pop countdown, Bjorn Olsson and Ebbot Lundberg were freaking out to Captain Beefheart and crossing over to the other side with the Stooges' Funhouse on repeat. As the '90s blossomed, the group dug into the more baroque, luscious pop sounds of the '60s and their music reflected this. Buoyed by some heavy praise from Noel Gallagher, TSOOL found themselves receiving all sorts of glowing accounts in the British press in the late '90s. This began to reach into further sections of the globe when their album, Behind The Music was released. The group excels at creating heavy, tuneful, psych-tinged rock epics but nothing ever reeks of a rehash. It's a little bit freedom rock, a little bit of doe-eyed mysticism; but mainly it's just rock n' roll.
