Majesty Crush

I Love You in Other Cities

The early ‘90s wasn’t that long ago, but given the fast pace of the musical world—especially now, with a million blogs each proclaiming a different band the “hot new thing”—it sometimes feels like it was. Self-appointed music historians might be able to distill an entire decade down to a handful of bands, but actual music lovers understand how many interesting bands get lost in the sands of time. I Love You in Other Cities is a welcome celebration of one such band, Detroit’s Majesty Crush: a dream-pop band with a more complicated, contradictory sound than is ever implied by the phrase “dream pop”. Their music swoons and drifts, but also struts in a cocky, rock n’ roll way. The lyrical mash notes get ridiculously macho, and the musicians always seem at the ready to let out their inner hard-rockers. Three cheers for not letting distinctive bands go forgotten.
