god’s Greatest Gift
If you find yourself on Lovers Touch’s bandcamp page, you’ll notice they list themselves as “Inspired by dad music.” On their latest release god’s Greatest Gift, they are not afraid to show this influence. As a whole, god’s Greatest Gift sounds like the soundtrack to a house party that your Dad threw back in the day. “Dancin’ Like a Man” and “Funky Woman,” the funkier tunes on the album draws everybody into the kitchen and gets them dancing. Whereas “Tigerblood” and “Lil Sally” turn up the Creedence Clearwater Revival influence to set the groove. Beautifully lo-fi, Lovers Touch captures the 1970’s vinyl aesthetic that so perfectly fits with the overall sound of classic dad rock with a little bit of Mac Demarco and Father John Misty sprinkled on top. Bottom line, if you want to turn your next house party into a rockin’ dance party, throw this album on.
