Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love

Ends of June

I know, I know. But you’re going to have to get past it, because Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love have a lot more going on than their overly precious name would have you believe. The fragile bedroom pop on the band’s second album is relaxed, compelling, and down-to-earth—no freak in this folk. Lead singer Kelly Dyson’s voice has been compared to Elliott Smith’s, and while it does have a similar breakable vibe, at times he sounds closer to a very mellow Isaac Brook. Banjos, neatly plucked guitars, and soothing vocals give the feeling that Ends of June was conceived on a screened-in porch and birthed in the comfort of a good friend’s kitchen.  By the time the end of the album creeps up on you, you’ll be ready to hit “play” once more and let Low Low rock you all the way to sleep.

Ends of June
