Love Is All

Tomorrow: Love is All, Cause Co-Motion! – Warsaw $13
If I had to pick only one show tonight, it'd be Love is All at the Warsaw. Just when you thought you'd never have to deal with another overblown post-punk buzz band, Love is All has been hyped so much in the last couple of months that typically-wise folk like myself have remained an ocean away. But now they're here for a couple of shows, there's really not much more to do except open our ears. And the secret that all of us cynics try to ignore remains that occasionally the hype is somewhat justified. If you've been avoiding this Swedish fivesome as I have, it's time to give in. They're take on the tired post-punk is just too original, catchy, and well-conceived to avoid. Equally more chaotic and more structured than their contemporaries, with more unusual intrumentation to boot, Love is All has a brainy immediacy that can't be denied and I can't wait to see how it all translates live. Another great band on New York's What's Your Rupture? label, Cause Co-Motion, is opening both shows.
