Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In 2007, The Love Me Nots' debut album In Black & White (Atomic A Go Go Records) introduced the world to the band s fuzzy, farfisa-drenched rock, as captured by Detroit producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Romantics). The album went to the CMJ Top 100 within a week of its release, XM Radio listed it in XMU's Top 25 Albums of 2007, and the album received national and international airplay and critical acclaim. Now boasting a new lineup and a tougher, harder-hitting style, The Love Me Nots have unleashed their second album, DETROIT. Again produced by Diamond for Atomic A Go Go Records, DETROIT contains thirteen original tracks full of the raw garage sound of THE LOVE ME NOTS.

Review

DETROIT benefits greatly from producer Jim Diamond's huge, warm analog sound. With this 21st-century update of early, classic American garage rock, the Love Me Nots play music that anyone who loved Question Mark and the Mysterians, Link Wray and the Standells can relate to. Nicole Laurenne's sultry voice, Farfisa organ and go-go boots are front and center, but all the Love Me Nots pull equal weight. Check out Treat Him Good, You're Really Something, or I'm the One to see what they do especially well--midtempo, big-beat, slightly menacing numbers powered by Michael Johnny Walker's fuzzed-out guitar and Laurenne's pumping organ. In a word: rocking. --The Tucson Weekly

Listening to the Love Me Nots brilliant new CD, Detroit, you d never guess that the sharp-dressed band hails from the land of saguaros, cowboy hats and desert rock jangle. But even though they hail from the Valley, their crunching garage rock is, as evidenced by the disc s name, pure Detroit. The band finds inspiration in the city s vast rock n roll heritage from the Stooges and MC5 s booming guitar textures to the White Stripes minimalism and has made Detroit a sort of second home where the Love Me Nots record their records with the legendary Jim Diamond in the producer s converted chicken processing plant. Detroit is loaded with 13 short, blast-furnace tracks (the longest cut on the disc, Treat Him Good, is only 3 minutes, 50 seconds) packed with delicious ear candy choruses, reverb-drenched guitar chords, surfy Farfisa organ runs and distorted guitar riffs, and at the center of it all is singer Nicole Laurenne s husky vocal yowl. --Get Out

The new record keeps the fuzzy, organ-driven garage rock that made its 2007 self-titled debut so much fun. The 13-song Detroit also sounds more confident and quick-paced than last year's effort, relying less on ballads and more on straight-ahead rockers. --Arizona Daily Star

This band hails from Phoenix but their new cd is titled DETROIT. They came to Detroit to record at Ghetto Recorders in the heart of the city. This is top notch rock n' roll in the Detroit tradition of The Von Bondies, White Stripes, Stooges and MC5. Guitar, bass, organ and drums quartet with a female singer. The organ has that early Attractions sound. The song 'Birthday Present' might be the best birthday song ever. You'll want all your friends and family to hear it on their birthday's. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

All thirteen of Detroit's songs are true to the original Love Me Nots formula with very few surprises. Riffs from guitarist Michael Johnny Walker come off heavy, thick, and full of reverb. Nicole Laurenne contributes frantic Farfisa and sly vocal melodies. One noticeable difference is that the Farfisa sounds a shade darker on this album, which compliments the album's seedier atmosphere when compared to the previous record. The addition of more backing vocals is also easily noticed and could very well solicit more crowd participation at upcoming Love Me Nots shows.

If I was to do the honor of renaming this album, I would name it Dive Bar for it's potential to serve as a soundtrack to any smoky lounge Saturday night. The album has enough inneundos weaved into it's lyrics tokeep the sexual tension growing without anyone in the joint saying a word. With every listen my imagination grows deeper, acting out tales of thrift-shop-dressed, gin-soaked, beautiful losers trying to catch the eye of the wasted post-youth from across the bar. Everytime I hear Laurenne sing "I will wait in the darkest corner" in "Secret Pocket", I vision myself inside the back lounge of Tucson's Plush looking for her or wondering if she is really looking for me.

In "Love Letter" , Laurenne complains that she is checking her mailbox "15 times a day". The only mailbox that someone checks that many times is an email or myspace account, which proves both The Love Me Nots' connection to 21st century social behaviors and their ability to not get too wrapped up in their retro showcasing. The Love Me Nots were never a gimmicky band to begin with and could easily be experienced beyond their black & white matching threads of 2006-07.

Rachel Nagy (Detroit Cobras) has some serious comeptition for the best female singer in rock today. That would be Nicole Laurenne.
This disc is a gem from start to finish. Not a bad track on it. Nicole belts out the songs while playing a mean farfisa. Fuzzy, snarling guitar licks and solos, a dead solid rhythm section, (mostly) short tight songs. This really does have the garage band spirit. The organ and guitar lead the way on every song. Really solid bass work and the drummer shifts gears nicely from pounding out the faster songs to more tasteful playing on the slower tracks (slower does not mean ballads). Nicole is really special. One tough ballsy singer.
If you like the Detroit Cobras, I think you will agree that Nicole has lot in common with Rachel in terms of her delivery and style. Actually the bands are similar, not in style (DC's very R&B influenced; LMN's more Peter Gunn/James Bond/slam bang rock n roll with a hint of blues), but in the absolute professionalism of what they do. Commercial rock today is dead. I am grateful we have bands like this to remind me that great music still exists. The passion and spirit are alive. They love playing and you can hear it in every song.
Great stuff. Hope to catch them live. ps - everything here is equally applicable to their 1st release.
