TELEPHONE LOVERS: Self-titled: LP

Mar 20, 2018

This record is pure mid-‘70s, Los Angeles rock’n’roll powerpop (remember when that wasn’t an oxymoron?) packed up and shipped into present day. Every minute is packed with tight, danceable drumbeats, catchy guitar riffs, and just enough reverb to evoke that retro garage sound. No feeble attempt at imitation, Telephone Lovers is an educated, authentic, and perfectly executed American rock band. You can almost hear the greasy hair and bouncy skirts. It’s just fun. The album’s vintage-style cover is complete with leather jackets, sunglasses, and bubble type. I dare you to listen to this record and not tap your foot. It can’t be done. –Michelle Kirk (Disconnected, [email protected], disconnected-records.com)
