New Fave Band: Acid House Kings

My musical leanings have definitely been mellowing the last couple of months, most likely as a response to the swirl of Mrs. F's pregnancy and now to having a little guy hanging out with me (lying on my chest as I type this). Anyhoo, I discovered the Swedish band Acid House Kings earlier this winter, and their sound is nothing like what the band name suggests -- sweetly poppy blended with quiet-is-the-new-loud acoustic settings (a la Norway's Kings of Convenience -- Scandinavia sure is producing some great music these days). Check out some of their songs with this handy Flash player from Last FM:
