Swedish twee-poppers, Acid House Kings, have long been a favorite around these parts and their latest record, Music Sounds Better With You, is no exception. John Bergstrom praised the group in March for “streamlining their signature summery pop, focusing more on uptempo songs and a high energy level”. “Would You Stay Stop?” is the band’s latest single, as addictive and irresistible as anything they’ve ever recorded. Bergstrom said it best, “If some pop goes in-one-ear-and-out-the-other, these two tunes (“Would You Stay Stop?” and “Are We Lovers Or Are We Friends”) simply swirl around your head until you’re dizzy, then flutter away.” Today we present the online premiere of a brand-new Perfect Nines remix of that slice of perfect pop confection.
