Lovewhip needs a sat AM cartoon! chink, choo, chink, choo, chink, chink! yeah!!!!! Screw the brooding indie rockers and their pouty stupid problems! Lovewhip guys know how party! They are putting fun back into... ehhh... Whereever it is missing! And I am there! Yeeeeeeaaaaaaa! Weeeeeee!
Excellent, fun CD! I stumbled on Lovewhip in a bar on Block Island and was really impressed with the level of musicianship in the band. Bouncehall is a totally infectious CD! These guys/gals are really great. Excellent production and just a fun CD all around.
The title track says it all: "Come with me to the dance floor now, you don't have to worry if you don't know how, all you have to do is move your feet and shake your body to the beat." This album that combines reggae, afro-pop, ska, soca and something called "world booty funk" into a celebratory, irresistible party soundtrack. Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of the Talking Heads/Tom Tom Club were sufficiently impressed to add a saucy remix of the title track. Pure joy!
