Is Love Is All still all that?

I'll have to hear the rest of their new album Two Thousand and Ten Injuries, which drops on March 23rd, to really answer that question. The leading single "Kungen" is an underwhelming shadow of their previous two albums. The song lacks the instantly captivating melodies and that raging sax and characterized their earlier work. Furthermore, frontwoman Josephine Olausson's unique and occasionally frantic vocal delivery now seems somewhat practiced, and in the frenzy that is the new wave/ proto-punk sound of Love Is All, that's not necessarily a good thing. Judge for yourself, check out the streaming audio and download below. Happy listening!

Steve Jones of Jonesy's Jukebox hosts Jonah Hill and the Duplass Brothers to discuss their upcoming film “Cyrus”. John C. Reilly plays John, a lonely divorcĂ© who meets Molly, the woman of his dreams. It seems there is only room for one man in Molly’s life and her son Cyrus, played by Jonah Hill, is not going to give up the top spot without a fight. John and Cyrus have met their match in this comical struggle for power written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass. May the best man win! Check out this, and many more of Jonesy’s Jukebox full length interviews with Bob Saget, Wilmer Vilerrama, Billy Corgan, Zeina Durra, Michael Chiklis to name a few at
