Album Review

Is lo-fi indie pop dead? Perish the thought! As long as guys like Stuart McLamb have a song in their heart and a cheap recording setup in their bedroom, homemade pop epics will be embraced by folks wearing carefully chosen thrift-store sweaters all over the world, and McLamb's project the Love Language is the latest example of this long and noble tradition. While the Love Language exists as a six-piece band that's taken this music on the road, their first album is a one-man-band effort, with McLamb writing all the songs, playing all the instruments and handling the engineering and mixing all by himself. In an era where digital technology has put quality recording in the hands of even the most humble amateur, McLamb's dedication to low fidelity (especially in the distorted, overdriven vocals) seems like a sincere if possibly misguided homage to the Golden Era of four-track cassette machines, but thankfully he's a better musician than most of the characters who have blazed these trails, and he's a gifted, engaging songwriter. The sweet, lovesick opener "Two Rabbits," the country-flavored love proclamation "Stars," the Spector-on-a-budget spectacle of "Nocturne," the waltz-time sway of "Manteo," and the near-Merseybeat pop of "Sparxxx" show McLamb has an impressive number of tricks up his sleeve, and if his skills as an engineer leave a bit to be desired, as a writer and arranger he's already a force to be reckoned with. The Love Language could be the first of a long series of charming lo-fi efforts from Stuart McLamb, or a demo for some grand-scale studio project in his future; either way, it's a short (29 minutes), sweet serving of indie pop from someone who is clearly a talent to watch, even if he's still getting the kinks out of his working process.

Customer Reviews

Great Album!!!

I saw The Love Language live a few months ago and I was immediately drawn to their eccentric style. Everyone in the band looked like someone I wanted to be best friends with and on top of that they were extremely talented. I picked up their EP the night of the show and I have been listening to them ever since. If you enjoy truthful lyrics, passionate folk vocals and real music, Click “Yes”.

Four Track Goodness...

Simple, dirty sounding, wonderfull-ness. I have no idea how something that sounds so gritty and wrong can be so good. If you aren't sold by Lalita, there's something wrong with your head holes... This is very very good stuff.

God bless the love language

oh how many different things i could say about the love language... this album is full on great. my buddy jordan is in this band and ever since i first saw them play i have been impressed. you may think this is bias but i assure you i am a big critic of music and these guys kick butt!

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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...
