Some bands grow on you. Love-cars don't -- unless you count the thirty
seconds it takes to come to love them as a growth spurt.

Produced by Jason Orris (Polara), their pop is atmospheric without being boring, smooth and bouncy and heartbreaking.

Look up "cathartic" and you'll see a picture of singer James Diers. "Emotive" will get you pictures of guitarist Matt Foust and bassist Alex Gaddis. Drummer Dave King, meanwhile, would show up somewhere between "busy" and "godlike." But you really ought to just file them under "L," because that's where people will look for them. And they will be looking.
