Last week, I got a treat in the mail. It was an advanced copy of the new CD by Lovie, Harshmellow. It’s an interesting title to be certain, as only half of the disc is mellow (my favorite track “Release Me” being a mellow song), and none of it whatsoever is harsh. This ten song collection is filled with catchy melodies, killer keyboard riffs, and a first rate production job by the Pipes brothers. If you are still feeling the void left when Sara Radle headed to Cali to become a Rental, then Lovie will help to heal that void.
If you’re interested in picking up the CD (which you should be), then you have two options. The first option is to purchase the CD through one of these sources: CD World, Good Records, or iTunes. Oh, and Austin folk, fear not: Harshmellow is available at Waterloo Records.
If you don’t mind waiting a few days to get the disc, then you can purchase Harshmellow at Lovie’s CD release party at Club Dada. Sunward, MC Router, and Austin’s Golden Bear are also on the bill. Either way, put a little Lovie in your heart. Sorry, I couldn’t pass that pun up.
