Love Inks

After the distractions of last week it is time to get back to the original intentions of this blog, in other words to inflict my somewhat dubious taste in music on anybody prepared to read the nonsense I type here.

Love Inks first came to my attention a couple of months ago when the track Blackeye, which was later to become the first single started floating around the blogosphere. There was something in Sherry LeBlanc's vocal delivery which sucked me in straight away to what is a lovely track which may or may not be about domestic violence.

The trio hail from Austin, Texas and their debut album, ESP was released last week. On a couple of tracks the sound is reminiscent of Mazzy Star but a little less intense if you know what I mean. The album is not up there with All At Once or Mazes by Moon Duo but then again very few albums this year will be but it is still well worth purchasing if you like your indie on the poppier side..

Very plesant indeed. Does it actually 'go' anywhere though? And should it have to? Probably not, actually.

Her voice. Melts me.
