The Lovemakers


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 Lovemakers - Is It Alright?
The Lovemakers - Gonna Find
The Lovemakers - Times of Romance
The Lovemakers - Prepare for the Fight

Had to take these down to make room for JCN. If you want the album shoot me an email and i'll hook up a torrent. Holler.

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