The Love Language's Merge debut, Libraries will be in stores tomorrow! Stuart, BJ, Missy, Justin & Jordan are playing a few CD release shows, and a dj night as well as an eponymous cocktail to celebrate!
Beginning tonight in Washington, DC at the Black Cat Backstage, the Love Language will bring their "perfect summer soundtrack" to Boston, New York and Charlottesville before returning to the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro on Saturday night for their hometown party!
Also, The Love Language have created a delicious summer cocktail exclusively for Bowbarr (705 W. Rosemary St. Carrboro, NC) to celebrate Libraries during the month of July. According to the band, "The Love Language" is a delectable southern treat to beat the heat with "(fl)aurals of love" featuring gin, green tea, lemon juice and more. Everyone who orders "The Love Language" will be entered to win a limited-edition autographed 7-inch and tickets to the CD release show for Libraries at the Cat's Cradle on Saturday, July 17. And come to Bowbarr on Friday, July 23 for a special DJ set by The Love Language!
Pre-order Libraries on CD and LP in the Merge store now or go buy the record directly from the band this week!
"Libraries evokes a landscape that’s a cross between Swingin’ London and the ambient galaxy where doo-wop went to die, with McLamb’s epic wail as your guide to the cosmos of romantic trauma." ~Spin Magazine
"Rather than mute its pop hooks, the lo-fi quality of McLamb's self-recorded debut only bolsters his enthusiasm, giving his songs not only the urgency of the best pop music, but a rascally Southern charm that distinguishes him from all the other bedroom auteurs and indie-pop bands out there." ~Washington Post Express
