Sleepover Show #59: Love Language
When we met up with The Love Language at T.T the Bear’s Place, we’ll admit we were hoping that they would want to film indoors, anywhere indoors, it was ridiculously freezing outside and one of us had decided to wear flats with no socks, we’ll just say that it was neither of the male Sleepover Shows members. Despite our hints that we would like to keep our toes warm, Stuart McLamb and his brother Jordan scouted the streets near the venue and settled on filming in front of Buckaroo’s Mercantile nearby. They chose their location well and, despite the frigid temperatures, played an amazing set as cars whizzed by, their headlights reflecting off windows and buildings.
In 2009, The Love Language’s self-titled first album debuted. The songs were the result of Stuart McLamb’s personal struggles and the album was recorded in his parent’s basement. Flash forward to 2010 when the band’s second album, Libraries, came out. This time recorded in a studio, the album has a more finished sound than their first- McLamb’s songwriting is meticulous and eloquent and the seven member band brings every song to life while not failing to recall some of the best, and almost buoyant, touches from their debut.
We hope that you enjoy the set, even watching the videos now makes us feel a bit chilly. It just might be the perfect way to fight off the summer heat. The Love Language has a few dates scheduled in August, but go out and grab their album just in case.
