On WMSE Today: The Love Language

North Carolina’s The Love Language isn’t the first band to dig into the vaults of trials and tragedy to bolster their songwriting, but few do it credibly. The band’s front man, Stuart McLamb has had his fair share of knocks, including the usual relationship skirmishes and some jail time, unapologetically relishing in these finer moments of life and shaking them off good-naturedly in song. Those skeletons that surface are forced to dance, and The Love Language orchestrates a pretty sweeping sound to sway across the floor to. Their latest release, Libraries [Merge Records], is filled with spry pianos and guitars, leading the listener through McLamb’s colorful tales. Paste Magazine comments that “McLamb makes records you can swoon to,” and nothing could be more true.

Tune into 91.7 FM today at 1:30 p.m. [CST] as WMSE DJ Dori Zori will talk to McLamb on The Girlina Show as the band travels from Minneapolis to Milwaukee tonight to play a show at Linneman’s.
