Biography

Four years on from the critically acclaimed 'Tuned To Love', The Loose Salute is back with an album of splendid, rueful charm - a triumph of heart and soul. The music is still wearing it's bubblegum heart on its sleeve but it's bruised, tougher, wiser.

Opener 'It’s A Beautiful Thing' captures the band’s spirit in one song. A swoonful, melody-cut ... Read more in Amazon's The Loose Salute Store

I saw The Loose Salute open the bill at a concert at the Royal Festival Hall last year. I had gone to see the Rockingbirds (who were amazing), but came away wanting to hear more from the Loose Salute. So I bought "Tuned to Love", and I am glad that I did.

After a few listenings, an image formed in my mind of the band heading to a Cornish beach with their surfboards (like the Monkees in one of their shows - except in warmer clothes), and stumbling across a 1960's recording studio, abandoned like the Marie Celeste. Curious, they wander in, finding recording equipment and musical instruments of the era, along with a pile of Beach Boys records. Two days later, the band emerges with "Tuned to Love".

The Beach Boys comparison is an obvious one to make, with upbeat "poppy" numbers like "From Head to Sandy Toes" and "Death Club", but with a dreamier, and sometimes darker wash applied. Similar to the variety you can find on Pet Sounds, but sometimes all within one song. For example, the two tracks just mentioned seem to change gear part way through and drift into a slower, more spacey end.

I sometimes think I can hear other echoes from the late 60's and early 70's - possibly the Mamas and Papas, and even a hint of T Rex at one point on the title track. But I don't want to give the impression that this is simply a recycling of 60's music. There is something original about the sound of this group, maybe helped by the use of trumpet and steel guitar, and the album leaves you with a mellow, reflective, and satisfied feeling.

For me, the album loses a little momentum after the excellent "Turn the Radio Up", which is why I give this 4 stars and not 5. But I definitely want to see this band again.

A great album for the summer with plenty of toe-tapping tunes - some emotive like 'Why do we fight?', laid-back festival tracks like 'Ship on the ocean' and the fun, surfy, Beach Boys-style tune 'Death Club'. I reckon they're set for big things with the album being released in the UK in May apparently. You can listen to a few tracks on My Space if you fancy a preview.

If at any time this summer you intend to sit in a pub garden or in a suburban park or on an english beach or on a thames riverbank drinking copious amounts of cider then this CD is the perfect accessory. And if The Loose Salute are playing near you then go and see them. The future may not be bright but it can be a beautiful English sunset.

Cheerful & sunny, but with depth & variety 14 Aug 2007
By Scott Klapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
That sums up this wonderful CD done buy the drummer for Mojave 3 and his buddies. It sounds effortless, but it's not. It just breezes by, and would be a great musical accompaniment to a fun road trip.
