The Soundtrack of Our Lives


Editorial Review

Over the past 15 years, Swedens The Soundtrack of Our Lives has demonstrated a chameleon8 like ability to ape (and occasionally, improve on) the sounds of its heroes: Dreamy, psychedelic rock a la Pink Floyd, the harmony-laden pop of the Kinks, the charging power chords of the Who, all touched with 60s spaciness. The Soundtrack of Our Lives is still touring behind 2009s double album "Communion," and the band touches down in D.C. for two very different shows on Thursday. First, theres an early (6 p.m. doors) acoustic show at the Swedish Embassys House of Sweden. Then the band packs up and heads to the Black Cat for a full show (8 p.m. doors) with Los Angeles rockers Nico Vega.
