Most listened to album of the year so far? Definitely All Dahled Up, the 2011 [!] album by Norway's The Dahlmans featuring Yum Yums guitarist Andre Dahlmann and his wife Line Cecilie Dahlmann. We've talked up this band's C86-meeets-CBGB's'76 sound before (see HERE) but this album delivers what their stellar EP's promised. I can't say for sure why they left off the delicious "I Love You Baby (But I Hate Your Friends)" but I have to guess it's because they had a surfeit of tip-top pop originals. Songs like "Lonely Boys Brigade", "Going Down" and "Love the Haters" have a feel of classic pop given a rough-but-respectful handling. If, like me, you missed this late-2011 album - go out and check it our right NOW!
