Now, before you go ‘Geez, they STILL going …’, think again! Of course Helen Love are still going, they’re just being their elusive selves, but that has never stopped anyone from releasing great records.
On the subject of great records, that is just what Long Hot Summer Is! It’s been literally years since Helen Love’s last release, and I dare say the wait has been well worth it!
No need to panic, Helen LOve haven’t changed their formula either(what could be called ‘doing a Data Panik’). Long Hot Summer weighs in featherlight, sugradrenched and, of course, summery! Needless to say, the words ‘Ramones’ and ‘Joann Jett’ feature repeatedly. No need to reinvent the Wagon Wheel, is there? It tasted delicious in the first place, did it not? Call it summer pop, bubblegum pop or, if you’re a cynic, the aspartame of indie, doesn’t change the fact that Helen Love will rule victoriously in their little world. And yours, too. Enjoy!
