Highlife Juicy Juju! The dance is on! Lovewhip swings your soul, twists your tush, shimmies your jimmie, and boosts your beat. With their "world pop", Lovewhip will bring a smile to your face, a buzz to your brain, and a sultry motion to encourage your booty to vibrate. Whether it's highlife, soukous, reggae, or ska - skillfully interpreted by the soulful, bluesy voice of diva Erin Harpe- Lovewhip's vibrant beat will shake your feet!
Wherever you go, there you are. Lovewhip seems to be everywhere. It would be too easy to say that Lovewhip is a ska band, or a reggae band, or a soukous band, or a Carribean band, or a dancehall band. Sure that would be easy, but the problem is that Lovewhip seems to be all these things at once, and more. Their complex, island-inflected rhythms combine and clash so recklessly with salsa guitars, a chewy horn section, relentless percussives, and Erin Harpe s downright, deliberate, lounge-lizard vocal approach, that it makes my head spin. I can count bands that evoke this kind of sound on one foot and Lovewhip s latest cd, "Whip It Baby!!", will take you to island ecstasy faster than 100 proof Captain Morgan s sipped from a coconut. Lovewhip is Club Med for the soul. Yeah!!! --The Noise Magazine Boston
A sassy and bold album complete with a salsa and ska sound that at times is remniscent of Blondie and others including the Talking Heads, but all in all a completely unique sound for Lovewhip. Up tempo tunes carry you through movers such as Rudies In Stereo, Nairobi and I Don't Care to close out the album. The trumpets and brass causes the groove along with a reggae/salsa rythm. --Grassroots Entertainment
