Another gem crafted from the loins of the majestic Labrador label. And while we’re on the subject the same label has just released a retrospective of their first 100 releases. If pristine pop is your bag then this will go some way to packing it. Somewhat surprisingly Acid House Kings have been around since 1991 but have flown under the radar despite some admirable promotional campaigns such as the Acid House Kings karaoke DVD! Listening to their music it’s obvious all AHK’s need is a marketing agency to append their sunshine pop to any TV advert they have planned. The sound reminds of Camera Obscura, the Legends (which shares some members), early St. Etienne and there are even some shades of the Carpenters. ‘Do What You Wanna Do’ is a faultless tune from the bands 5th album ‘Sing Along With Acid House Kings’. Here you’ll find cascading vocal melodies, sixties soundscapes and the most finely tuned handclaps this side of Gypsy Kings. Acid House Kings have contributed 7 songs to the aforementioned Labrador 100 compilation, enuff said. KD
