Chicken El Diablo was formed in Stockholm in 1999 and has over the years distinguished themselves as one of Swedens best live acts, and they have attained somewhat of a cult-status. Their music can be described as updated krautrock with hints of post rock and Swedish psychedelia in the vein of Träd Gräs och Stenar. Bands like Spacemen 3, Neu, Can and Sonic Youth are sources of inspiration, but they always end up sounding like nothing else.

A theme that runs through ”Love It or Level It” is the band’s relationship to their hometown, brimful of feelings like alienation, frustration, escapism and resignation. Two unlikely cover tracks grace the album, the first one being the old Kraftwerk single "Kometenmelodie" off the "Autobahn" album that ends up sounding far more focused and driven than the original. The other cover is the Velvet Underground "Loaded" outtake "Ride into the sun" which is beautifully de-constructed.

A mostly instrumental band, Chicken el Diablo’s music is based largely on improvisation, and the band is very much into creating in the ”here and now”. Over the years they have developed a nigh on uncanny ability to communicate with each other in their playing, and even though the songs usually have set structures a lot is left open to the spur of the moment.
