Amoeba Review

02/16/2017

Continuing in the tradition of sentimentally hardened troubadours, Timothy Showalter's raw and candid songs on Hard Love paint vivid portraits of turmoil and introspection, while being served on a full course platter of sound. What starts with unbridled, chaotic noise soon turns into a dark syrup of a guitar melody in "Radio Kids," which combines the sonic textures of My Bloody Valentine with the upfront, nostalgic vocals of Bruce Springsteen. On "Rest Of It" Showalter infuses his beer-soaked, dive bar vocal chords with the glam sounds of Diamond Dogs Bowie and Electric Warrior T-Rex, while title track "Hard Love" starts with a more intimate and bare arrangement, showcasing his unabashed directness.
