Acid House Kings - Music Sounds Better With You
An enhanced iPad experience
e collaborated with Labrador Records, and the Acid House Kings to produce an enhanced musical experience for the iPad, "Music Sounds Better With You". We remember the days when bringing home the latest record from our favorite band had a real sense of discovery. The cover, liner notes, posters, postcards -- you never knew what was going to be inside when you peeled off the cellophane. Our goal for this immersive, interactive album experience is to bring back that same feeling of discovery, using the latest combination of interactive technology and unique mobility that only the iPad has to offer. Plug in, sit back and enjoy the music. It sounds better with you. Anywhere.

I'm not sure if audiences will ever interact with music with the same commitment of time and emotion like in the heyday of vinyl albums once the stereo era began and coincided with a generation revolting against the status quo from politics to fashion and art. Obviously well before our era of hyper-connectivity, omnipresent multi-tasking, and reduced attention spans. This music album as an app is a delightful attempt to rekindle the sense and depth of emotional engagement with a band transported into our time and technology. I have no idea, if this app/album will ever be counted as a big success in the numerical sense. But I sincerely hope it will, because something that is put together with so much charm and caring deserves success. For listeners who prefer their pop music intelligent and catchy, there's a lot of ear candy here. And for singing along, one can fire up karaoke mode inside the app.
Sweden's Finest Pop ....to play with. ★★★★

What a cool app.! Tons of info, lots of cool stuff if you love AHK. The karaoke option is the coolest part of this experience. I also enjoyed the BIO page where the members of the group slide from side to side.....I'm easily entertained obviously. Also, all the band info from the label's other bands was very informative. All this info could be researched and found on the web, but its neat-o that they took time to make this just for us fans. I love it. It's worth the cost just to support real bands like this. Thanks AHK, thanks.
Works for me ★★★★★

Pros: * Album tracks can be imported into iTunes * Music continues to play in background when switching apps * same price as album alone (or cheaper if you catch the .99 deal like I did) Cons: * music stops when switching views within app
Beautiful app by a beautiful band. ★★★★★

I wish more bands would create experiences like this for fans. Some people complain about the price point. But fans of the band will often pay a ton extra for limited editions of cd's and vinyl releases. It's filled with music, videos, extras, joy and happiness. Labrador also includes info on other artists on their label. Ace.
