Possibly the most exciting live band in the country at the minute.
see them live.
the demos are awesome.
Couldnt go last night though, was feeling a little under the weather, and you have to be tip-top for a lovvers gig, or you will die.
if you say so
\and i was ill. It hurt. HURT!!
At dot2dot last year. Knew nothing about them at the time, but impressed me a hell of a lot with the sheer energy brought to the fore from their frontman...
to see this band live.
there playing near me soon (22nd feb) very excited, havn't seen any of the murder of... of shot bands. only have a 7" from tera tora
is really good.
and have any lovvers stuff i don't have anything
but it won't let me download :(
Lots more to come but I've stuck a couple online.
They were superb the other night, they've improved every time I've seen them. They seem to meld that disjointed squall/fury of hardcore with a melody and intricacy which at first I think is lost in the live experience until you know your way around the songs and then it really shines. As they get tighter and develop a few more styles and ideas these guys will have a breathtaking live show. what's hard to place is what audience they have, who do they appeal to?
But yeah, I can see what you mean, as they don't fit into any kind of genre or sub-genre for that matter.
I think that could be a big positive though as every time I've seen them they seem to attract a real cross-section of people, and no one I've spoken to who's seen them has said anything less than complimentary things afterwards.
...Lovvers are doing anything that new. Rites of Spring/Skull Control/Oxbow but with a slightly slower, doomier feel.
But by Christ, they do what they do mindmeltingly well.
Sean is obviously a great frontman, but his voice is just as incredible: furious, righteous and very angry. Henry's guitar playing is brilliant too. Listen closely and you can hear his love of stuff like Pavement/Yo La Tengo/Tim Kinsella. Not many people can use a loop pedal like him, either. Then their rythym section's unrelenting and as tight as fuck.
They'll go far. They've got a ltd.edition 4 track 7" coming out on Jonson Family soon.
I think the moments of sludge are more breathing spaces for sean to get some rest. Although henry's loops often give that doom like quality.
I meant doom in that they give you a sense of doom rather than sounding like Boris. Sludge is a better word.
jarcrew. the singer collected empty pint glasses then sat on my lap and sang to me
this was the exact moment i fell in love with that band.
also first time i saw Engerica, very good night
