The Love Language Returns to Local Roots at this Weekend's Phuzz Phest
The Love Language started out in a Winston-Salem apartment as a lo-fi love letter, and has developed into a panoramic indie pop pastiche, bringing elements of music’s past, present, and future together - a wall of sound approach that harkens back to the days of Phil Spector and his recordings with the Crystals & The Ronnettes. But beyond the strings, the horns, the glockenspiel, and the healthy dose of reverb, there’s the great songs of singer, songwriter, guitarist Stuart McLamb.
The latest release by The Love Language is called Ruby Red – it's their third record, and second to be released on Merge Records.
The Love Language are playing in Winston-Salem on Sunday, April 6th at Krankies Coffee, as part of the Phuzz Phest Music Festival. Eddie Garcia talked with Stu by phone, about Ruby Red and the evolution of The Love Language sound.
Tune into Triad Arts Weekend Friday at 1 and Sunday at 4 for a deeper look into Phuzz Phest 2014.
