It isn’t much of a secret that I’m not the biggest music fan, a fact that stymies my best friends and perfect strangers alike. I don’t believe that music taste can tell me everything there is to know about a person, because I personally don’t have any music taste – I would rather listen to silence. Probably, I just don’t want to learn what that says about me. I imagine it’s something like: does not like music = does not have soul. So while I’m a soulless automaton, I am going to point out I just came across a Regina-based “power-pop” band named Library Voices, and they’re releasing their second LP: Summer of Lust available August 23rd. Yes, I am recommending based on “Library” being in their name and the fact that the 4th song on the LP is entitled Reluctant Readers Make Reluctant Lovers. Do I need any more reason than that?
To find out more on , including sneak peaks of the songs, check out the Ampersand Record Club article.
For those of you far more hip than I (who haven’t deleted their Myspace page due to neglect and years of disuse), you can find more information on the Library Lust Myspace. I won’t be giving a review of their music since I consider myself unqualified, but you can certainly listen to featured songs on the playlist there. There is also some information available on their website and Wikipedia.
