Lots Of Love is the vehicle for Los Angeles USA based indie pop singer songwriter Jessica Fleischer to deliver her ideas.
There are very rare occasions when pop bubbles and great song-writing are not an oxymoron and Lots Of Love is one of those cases. Somehow Jessica is able to make lyrics of sentimental slush sound harder edged and it is this ability to give credibility to the incredulous that I just enjoy. Musically nothing like, but over all the effect similar to Isabella Rossellini singing Blue Velvet in the David Lynch film – intoxicating.
Jessica Fleischer is not only deftly able to handle the compositions of the songs, but to add a slightly ironic twist to it with a vocal that transfixes the attention of the listener. A fine debut ten track LP From The Start was released on the 27th August which should find Lots Of Love gain wider interest. There is more to the sounds than a fine vocal as the instruments also keep a lid on the pink froth within a well behaved rock derivative that harkens to the ’60s and ’50s.
There is much to enjoy here, even a cynic such as myself finds themselves defrosting slightly as the material contains none of the crass marketing autocue that lives inside much of this genre as Jessica writes about her own emotional twists and turns, throwing them up for investigation. I hope Jessica continues with this honesty going forward as this is what is the real value that differentiates Lots Of Love from mainstream pop pap.
