Genius musician

Every time The Love Language has released a new album I have been amazed. The excitement of another release is hard to describe. This band exemplifies what good music stands for. The 2 titles released are amazing as I am sure the others will be as well.

About The Love Language

North Carolina-based lo-fi indie rock outfit Love Language were formed in Raleigh by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Stuart McLamb after a series of false starts, hard times, and general malcontent that found the newly reformed artist ready to embrace a healthier, less destructive lifestyle. Recorded, written, and produced in a storage space by McLamb alone on an old four-track, Love Language's heady blend of Guided by Voices-infused indie pop and nightmarish, Phil Spector-meets-Animal Collective-style production caught the ear of Merge artists the Rosebuds, who asked McLamb to join them on tour as the opening act. McLamb quickly threw together a band, which included drummer Thomas Simpson, organist Kate Thompson, bassist Joshua Pope, keyboardist/vocalist Missy Thangs, guitarist/vocalist Junis Beefmonth, and guitarist/percussionist/vocalist Jordan McLamb, and the band hit the road in support of its eponymous debut, which was released in early 2009. Soon after touring ended, the group disbanded and McLamb went back to Raleigh to begin working on another album. With the help of producer/engineer BJ Burton, McLamb moved from the lo-fi D.I.Y. approach of the debut to a more orchestrated and produced sound. Libraries was released in July of 2010 on new label Merge. Around that time McLamb formed another edition of the band featuring Burton on guitar, holdover Missy Thangs on keys, and newcomers Justin Rodermond and Jordan McLamb on bass and drums, respectively. ~ James Christopher Monger
