All You Need Is Lovers 

Wednesday, Nov 28 2007
In our dreams, David Bowie introduces Dusty Springfield and the Kinks to Morrissey, and the air erupts in song from the sheer creative force: This is the sound of the Music Lovers. Anchored by a team of experts purveying indie rock from the satiny side, the band also features a lead singer of mystery. Ted Edwards' voice sounds like the saddest moment of your life (watching her walk away, hearing those words, etc.) — why is it so beautiful and habit-forming? Often described as "grown-up pop," the group is well read, classy, and complicated. Opulent arrangements for strings and keys gloss up the rock like a Britpop Phil Spector, with a swing: This band makes several dreams come true.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
