And that’s just what The Love Me Nots have tossed out there as a taste of their upcoming album, The Demon and the Devotee. Available right now on CD Baby, Thringle whets the appetite with a 1-2-3 punch of the Spector/garage hybrid that this Arizona band has consistently excelled at.
Once again working with the legendary Jim Diamond, the band combines catchy but meaty pop songs with a sonic wallop that’s at once retro and current. Vocalist Nicole Laurenne is the personification of sultry, but she can pounce as well as she can purr. And while I’m enamored with her presence front and center, the whip-crack trio standing alongside her (Michael Johnny Walker, Kyle Rose Stokes, Jay Lien) are equally critical cogs in this machine.

The Love Me Nots have dropped three albums in recent years, and with each one they get better. I’m already smiling at the ringing twelve string chiming on “The Girl Lights Up“, but I’ll save my thoughts on these three tracks until the full length comes out.
The Demon and the Devotee will soon be available in Europe on Bad Reputation Records, with a US release on Atomic A Go Go Records shortly afterwards. So drop the two dollars now and get your Thringle on. And if you haven’t already done so, I recommend that you grab those other three albums to help hold you over.
