Rotation: Love A

Love A_Jagd und Hund_CoverHere we go again spreading a lot of love with Love A. As I tried to remember when the second album “Irgendwie” of Love A hit the stores I realised that already two years passed. It doesn’t feel like! The truth is, there is still this craving for moving legs, shaking arms and heads when I listen to the first seconds of their new songs of “Jagd und Hund” (released 27.3. via Rookie Records, booking via Audiolith). And I am still craving for perpetuate their lyrics on walls, cut them into the bark or ink them on my skin. It would all worth it!

As “Irgendwie” was an album full of Hits Hits Hits, “Jagd und Hund” takes a step backwards from Indiedisco without loosing the brain fucking hooklines, without  loosing the rage of getting older, wiser or just without loosing the craving for a sick world. You can feel the pain, the hope, the desperation, the rage and aversion. You can read it in lines like:

Ihre Narben werden heilen mit der Zeit, die kalte Angst im Nacken bleibt gleich. […] Die Knie und das Hirn vom Hoffen weich” (Song 1 “Lose Your Illusion”)

Wenn man sie kennt, kann man getrost die Regeln brechen. Weil die meisten doof sind, fällts uns gar nciht schwer. Nur wer mal aufgestanden ist, der darf sich setzen und darum bleiben hier so viele Stühle leer.” (Song 4 “100.000 Stühle leer”)

Wir bleiben dumm und klein und sprachlos , wir spielen das Gegenteil und das steht uns gut, krallen uns weiter fest am Tellerrand und schaun dem dahinter weiter zu. Wir machen Schulden, sammeln Herzen denn unsere Selbstzweifel lassen das zu.” (Song 10 “Regen Auf Rügen”)

And you can hear it in the remarkable voice of singer Jörkk. Since their first album “Eigentlich” they extended their sound from indiepunk to postpunk and wave, never lost the heart for great guitar pickings, never lost their attitude and pay homage to bands they like (“Alles was ich will ist, nichts mit dir zu tun haben”, “Nein nein, no way, wir tanzen nie wieder zu den falschen Liedern”). As if all this rage and resignation would not be enough, they end the album with the very clearly lines “Brennt alles nieder, fickt das System” / “Burn everything down, fuck the system”. Nothing more to say…

Guys, you made this difficult third step (since the third album is called a difficult task) and it is really hard to unlove you! So again and again and again: LOVE, EY!!!
