The Larry David of Swedish indie music

"Josephine Olausson is the Larry David of Swedish indie music. On her band Love Is All’s recent album, A Hundred Things Keep Me Up at Night, the 30-something singer alludes to the paranoia that wards off blissful R.E.M. But if 100 neuroses keep her eyes glued to the ceiling, at least a million nuisances plague her during waking hours. On the new LP, for example, a relaxing vacation getaway 'on the world’s most extravagant ship' inspires Olausson to complain about too much teriyaki and old ladies doing yoga. “I’m bored to death, I’m bored as shit!” she screams in frustration after several days off-shore."
