Mean Lady - Love Now LP
NEW. FAT POSSUM RECORDS. MEAN LADY is the duo of KATIE DILL and SAM NOBLES. They are from Delaware and theyre both so nice its kinda creepy. Really, really nice. They wrote a bunch of songs about lust and innocence and vulnerability. Through bubbly synths and rhythmic production, Dill and Nobles managed to cobble together a timeless, concise pop record. Its a finished product that could only exist when kids from Delaware grew up, trashed all their soul records and then got high some time after DJ Shadow started to suck but probably before J Dilla died. Lonely chronicles the emotions behind loving someone and not being nearthat nasty burn, the powerless, physical feeling, the one that makes you dry heave on a dirt road somewhere outside the city limits. What if it takes too long and Im lonely / How can it break me, make me so strong, finally blurting out, I need you next to me. Its universal love and loneliness. It sucks, but Mean Lady makes it better with their music. Love Now is deep and rich. The sound is Sams wonderfully abrupt sampling and skipping drum beats underneath the bands live instruments. All of this is anchored by Katies songwriting and sharp, but sweet vocals. Take heed: this is an important debut for a young band.
