Love, Sex and Death etc
 
Love, Sex and Death etc Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $18.00
Artist: Simon Love
 
 
Quantity:
 

“Love, Sex and Death etc” is the followup to 2018’s “Sincerely, S. Love x”.  The 12 songs, written between 2017 and 2019 mostly, were recorded in two batches in July and November 2020 after being rehearsed for six months with the initial plan of recording them as live as possible all together in one room. Simon says, "Apart from COVID-19 and all the death and hand-washing, it was surprisingly the easiest album I think I've ever made! We were laser focused when it came to do these songs and it shows."  Swinging from love songs (‘Me And You’ and ‘I Will Always Love You Anyway’) to hate songs (‘The F*ck-Up’ and ‘I Love Everybody In The Whole Wide World (Except You)’) through all points in-between, the centerpiece of the album is the nigh on seven-minute long pop epic ‘L-O-T-H-A-R-I-O’.  Simon explains "That song started early one morning when a photo popped up on Facebook.  I couldn't sleep and seeing it reminded me that it was taken the evening I almost had a one-night stand. I then wrote out a series of tweets about what happened (a lot happened) and originally, I thought it could be a poem to put on an album sleeve Bob Dylan style, but somebody replied saying, 'It sounds like a Leonard Cohen song' so instead it became a tune.”  The non-musical influences for this record include his wife, his son (‘Au Revoir My Dude’), the Conservative government (‘I Will Dance’ and ‘You're On Your Own’), ex-girlfriends (‘North Road’) and his inability to pick up on signals (‘Yvonne’) whereas musically Simon was aiming for (but not always hitting directly) Nick Lowe, Kevin Ayers, Silver Jews, Ween, and all the Kinks between 1971 and 1975. The album’s title comes from the fact that every song mentions or references love, sex and/or death in the lyrics. That fact makes this somewhat of a concept album but even though it's a concept album, there's no through line, no direct narrative, so you can listen to it however you want.  EXCELLENT!!
