Starting out as a few old friends playing in a drafty Stockholm rehearsal space in 2002, recording 60s-era and American indie-inspired songs backed by a temperamental drum machine stuck on bossa nova. Shout Out Louds ready to release their debut album out on Capitol Records. Features the single 'Shut Your Eyes'. 2005.
More evidence that there is actually a garage rock factory in Sweden--the U.S. debut from this perfectly formed, retro-rock quintet bustles with handclaps, keyboard-driven pop melodies and a potent new-wave punch. There's a drop-dead gorgeous blonde like the Ravonettes and a shaggy-haired front man like the Hives (plus someone that inexplicably looks like Moby) but Shout Out Louds otherwise offer up their own variation of the genre using crisp go-go rhythms on "Hurry Up Let's Go" and a woozy southern drawl on the bittersweet "Please Please Please." Fans of the Wannadies will certainly not want to look the other way. --Aidin Vaziri

I thought this was the best indie-pop album of '05. Superbly hummable hooks, driving grooves, gently humorous and slightly self-deprecating humor. Why aren't these guys stars!? Read morePublished on November 17, 2011 by R. Baker

This cd smacks you square center of your face with "The Comeback," and does not stop. Songs like "Please Please Please" and "100*" only compliment the Shout Out Louds more. Read morePublished on May 2, 2007 by J. Howard Jr.
I tend to agree with another review that said pop is the purest form of music and there's nothing wrong with it. I think that's pretty true. Read morePublished on December 14, 2006 by Buzzipper

The first song is okay... the rest are incredible boring. This album is completely unoriginal. I regret buying it.Published on February 10, 2006 by 6at86th
