Lovesick

Released March 2007

"Call it roots rock, folk rock, singer/songwriter rock, Americana, whatever you wish. The important thing to remember is that Mike June & The Dirty Doves' new CD, "Lovesick", is a real album. Not just a collection of songs put out as an album, this CD features 11 tracks that seem to convey a story about the highs and lows of love. Sure it's a topic covered over and over again in song, but when it's done well, as it is here, it can still have emotional resonance. Choosing to record and mix the album using only analog equipment works to great effect, as the music has more of a timeless sort of feel to it, like the way you can look back at an old Springsteen or Dylan album, and not think that it sounds so much of the year it came out (unlike say, a Madonna album). "Lovesick" is held together by Mike June's compelling vocals and perfectly accompanying instrumentation (which includes Hammond B-3 and Wurlitzer organ, slide guitar, lap steel, and accordion). At times up-beat and jangly, but more often mellow and melancholy, "Lovesick", is a great album." -Blowup Radio
