21st Century Rock music with 60s-70s rock sensibilities.

Fists of Love's eponymous debut displays the breadth of its members' experience. This brainchild of songwriters Donna Jay and Shady Schadler has the unexpected turns of a carnival ride; reflections, dark corners and bright, open spaces. At once brooding and exuberant, the songs speak to the present, drawing on a deep, eclectic vein of rock-n-roll and soul. Fists Of Loves' influences transcend genre: Journey to the End of the Night, Duchamp, Psychedelia through the ages, post-rock, post-punk, post-industrial and post-post-post-modern.

Their process is visceral, and so's the experience. While their record creates landscapes of liquid tones and contrasting moods, the yen to make unique, exciting music from collaboration, coupled with the sheer pleasure of making and listening to great music shines through this debut with an infectious fervor. Fists of Love puts to disc the same showmanship they strive for on stage.

Fists of Love is the ’60s and ’70s getting together to devour the sex/drugs/Rock and Roll excesses of the ’80s and ’90s and puking up the new millennium in the orgiastic afterglow; a careening rollercoaster ride through the Post Rock apocolypse that somehow manages to sound howlingly chaotic and tightly focused all at the same time. -Brian Baker, City Beat ... more
