Chin omelets galore!
As their name implies, the Lovemakers (via Oakland) are a sexual band that makes new wavish pop music, lets call it new pop. No, that's lame? Ok, pop wave, whatever you want guy.
I have to admit that I tried very, very hard to dislike their album, Times of Romance, and passed it off after a first listen as shitty Duran Duran rippage. But, boy was I wrong. Their music is catchy as hell and if I were a comparison man, I would call it New Pornographers slightly mixed with a little Bravery influenced by Human League. How's that for a comparison. The Bravery might be the shittiest band on earth, btw... The sexual theme gets a little old after a while, but the synth hooks carry their music and make for a solid, solid album. The title track might be the best of the bunch, as it chronicles passionate lovers heading downhill driven by violins. Check these guys out.

The D-Train thinks that Carp deserves the Cy Young. Nice.
