Come on play that 45 and dance like sin.
I’ll lock up the doors honey so no one’ll come in
You’re beautiful alone but with so much to give to the world
so why not let ’em in?

~Southern Knell,
Lovedrug, Ep – Part II

I am so excited for their album to come out at the end of the year, I can’t even describe it. This band inspires me so much, namely because they can write any kind of song and still sound like Lovedrug. It’s so great. “Miss California” might be one of the coolest songs they’ve ever written, sweet keys and bass line — lots of subtlety all over this EP. Made my week. Good music should break your heart, make you believe in god, or some such feeling.

I don’t want to do anything other than sit around and listen to this. For days.

UPDATE: Like most Lovedrug, it gets even better with multiple listens. I’ve concluded this has a “Pretend You’re Alive” feel if I had to compare it to any of their other releases, notably on “Faith” and “Elastical.” They won my heart over when they covered The Pixies’ “Where is my Mind” live on WBER one time, and they kicked the shit out of the recorded cover.
