Art of Rolling

In the three-months leading up to the making of their debut album, the members of this shaggy-haired Danish quartet relocated to a rundown loft in Brooklyn and played over 50 live shows around New York, never once failing to fill a room. The secret? A surge of Hammon organ, go-go beats and chaotically wielded electric guitars, resulting in a heady, infectious sound that brings together '60s rock 'n' soul together with vintage punk and modern garage rock. Singer Steffan Westmark is a marvel. Like the Hives' Howlin' Pelle Almquist he's able to do authentic American R&B ("Baby, I've Got Time") and powerhouse wailing ("Revelation of Love") with equal poise, while the band bashing away in the background plays so hard it sounds intent on bloodying its fingertips.
