Love Coma – Love Coma

I was pretty surprised to hear that Love Coma was making a new album a few years ago. I loved their other two albums, so I was afraid that their new album might not measure up in my nostalgic mind. But wow is this album great. It feels like the opening track is an intentional callback to their earlier work, and then they pick up and grow from there as if they had never stopped making music. Which, okay, Chris Taylor has been making excellent music as a solo artist since back then – but the way they made this collection of songs a definite Love Coma album and not just a “Taylor put the Love Coma name on a solo album” thing that so many returning bands do is impressive. They are still mainly in the “alternative rock” category – but it feels like they defy that category in many ways as well. If you were hesitant about this album, be sure to check it out on BandCamp – you won’t be disappointed. Oh, and I would highly recommend the vinyl version – the beautiful artwork looks stunning at full size. I sincerely hope this is not just a one off recording, as I would love to hear more.
