I love talking about bands that inspire me - and that's why I love to talk about Lovedrug! Some bands completely touch you....in all the right ways....and Lovedrug knows right where to lay their music on me!
In 2005 I lived in Prague, Czech Republic for a time, and I had a 8am class on Thursdays. I would head out the front door in the cold early morning air and make my way through the snow with my head phones pumping Lovedrug's first record Pretend You're Alive. Every Thursday morning while sitting in the no. 14 tram, emerging down into that amazing city, passing the Prague castle, over the Vltava River, falling in love with the country, and with this this band.
8 years later, here we are, and Lovedrug is still making amazing music. They released a new album in March called Wise Blood that I listen to at least every other day on my own personal vinyl copy that the band gave me at SXSW! Michael Shepard's voice is pretty much part of my DNA now, sweet and haunting...
Check out this live video they did of "Wild Blood" for Look Session. They are currently on a US tour....and I know where I will be on May 6th!!
