It’s probably a good thing that Libraries, the lovely second album by The Love Language, sounds not that far off from their well-received eponymous debut (which was one of the more outstanding first efforts from last year, in my opinion), as the band continue to tap into a rich vein of fuzzy garage rock crossed with rapturous summer pop sensibilities. The music generated from these psychedelic Libraries is delivered with confidence and zeal, while a spirit of nostalgia holds sway over its most knowingly retro moments. The frenzied bloom of “Heart To Tell” sculpts all that aching wistfulness into two and a half minutes of knockabout pop wonder, adding an enlivening presence to an album awash in dreamy enchantment. – keith.
