Distorted lo-fi guitars; indie-pop music; and that Raleigh, North Carolina sound. The Love Language reminds you of everything you loved about Guided By Voices and Sebadoh.

It's the project of Stu McLamb, who was on the lamb a few years ago after a hard break up and being kicked out of the band (The Capulets) he was in at the time.

“I had moved in with a girl I thought was the love of my life but felt absolutely miserable. We had unhealthy tendencies like throwing beer bottles at the wall when we fought,” said Stuart about the experience.

He turned all of that into a lo-fi bedroom recording masterpiece of angst and regrowth, self-titled and released by the venerable independent label Bladen County in Portland. Lemonade, anyone?

Now The Love Language is back, as a full band this time, for the release of Libraries, the debut release for Merge Records. It's less lo-fi than its predecessor, but the sound is incessantly indie-pop and infectious.
