The Love Language @ Mercury Lounge
Love Language

Allegedly born from the heartbreak of a past relationship of Stuart Mclamb, The Love Language‘s real spectacle is the impersonal liberty McLamb has taken in order to retell each ardent story. The majority of the live band contributed backing vocals in a fun jaunty exchange supported by Missy Thangs on keyboards. With two guitars between McLamb and lead guitarist BJ Burton, the interplay can take the form of a shimmering wall of sound, with a clean edge not heavily relying on distortion…

On this particular tour [Telekinesis‘s] Lerner has chosen to play drums and sing vocals, displaying an accomplished musicianship and versatility in writing the songs. Although openly admitting that he was currently sick that evening, Lerner’s songs rarely faltered as a result of his strained vocals chords. Songs like “Dirty Thing” and “Car Crash” unfolded into irresistible sing-a-longs as Lerner sat holding a jovial rhythm on the kit. Ex-Blood Brothers guitarist and touring Telekinesis guitarist Cody Votolato was at his energetic best in support of Lerner on stage. -[SanDiego.com]

The above review comes from the San Diego stop on the March Telekinesis/Love Language tour that hit Mercury Lounge in NYC on 3/9. Belated pictures from that Manhattan show (which came one night before a Brooklyn show at Rock Shop), and more Love Language tour dates, continue below…
