A disclaimer!? Really!? If any reader has ever thought they might have known even an iota about life and love, this reviewer kindly asks that they immediately drop any preconception about the outrageous and magical journey in which we are together embarking on. Destination unknown and duration varying, this wild ride called life just got a whole hell of a lot better - thanks to a trio of uber-talented female musicians hailing from the Pacific Northwest. Portland, Oregon to be geographically precise and there is literally NO OTHER WORD in language itself that could better describe what it is that they do. Lovers. Their quintessential fifth release, Dark Light (2010, Badman Recording Co.), further exemplifies the tremendous amount of talent, insight and LOVE Lovers have to offer.

Collectively, the group is comprised of celebrated lyricist, Carolyn Berk, synth programmer/performance artist Kerby Ferris and multimedia artist/percussionist Emily Kingan; and while these three ladies warm up the disc nicely with a combination of experimental pop and new wave elements on "Barnacle" and an impressive Ladytron meets Roxette meets Kill Rock Stars vibe on "Figure 8", the live percussion and electronic elements of "Boxer" stand out as our immediate favorite thus far. The music is comprised of both analog and digital elements and maintains a strong sense of organic composition. The song is about getting in touch with others; and comes across sounding as if the Chemical Brothers and MGMT got together to sing campfire songs in the desert while coming off of a three day peyote trip. This is a masterpiece my friends, a true-to-life, tangible masterpiece made of fuzz and bleeps and vintage analog synths that swell and sweep the listener right onto their seat.

I second the sentiments of the previous reviewer, and then some. In your lifetime, only a handful of artists/groups touch your very soul, and this unique band does that, for me. Their music resounds with utter, naked sincerity, and the lyrics are just phenomenal, heart-stopping- on their own, prose of the highest order, but when combined with the drop-dead purity of the vocals and the music they convey much more than mere words can- they capture and express the ineffable- right here, right now, full stop.

I bought this album shortly after it came out. I've listened to it many times since and played it for others. Every song is lovingly crafted, perfect in its own right. The music is chameleon-like, reflecting and deepening whatever you're feeling, whatever's happening in your life. It's multifaceted, like life itself. It can express joy, or irony, or heartache (while helping to heal your broken heart). Although not even REMOTELY similar stylistically, this chameleon-like quality, utter originality, and ultra-personal, intimate feel and immediacy reminds me most of early David Bowie (Rock and Roll Suicide, Aladdin Sane, Ziggy Stardust, Oh You Pretty Things, etc).

I believe in Cedar Falls... get this album and I think you will too...MAGIC.

Like many people, I assume, I first heard "Boxer" on the Slate culture gabfest, just last month when this CD was already two years old. I bought this CD right away and I'm very happy to say that the rest of it is also fantastic. While I'm a bit old to be falling for music this romantic, if this band existed when I was in high school they would have moved me as much as The Smiths. I'm interested in any new material from them when it comes out.

This Portland hipster band is soooo good. One of the up and coming bands in the Pacific NW. I was tempted to give it 5 Stars because of how good this album is, but give if you give it a listen and enjoy this type of music then you will NOT be disappointed.
