Lo Moda - Gospel Store Front Review

by Kevin Wierzbicki

The music on Gospel Store Frontreminds me of the kind of stuff that a frat boy would sit in the dark and listen to night after night because he can't get a date. Lots of things add up to that image, the first and foremost of which is that there is no mention of relationships in the traditional way. No back seat urges, no trysting by the pool, no long winded talk of conquests. So our lonely boy hears the love talk just the way he likes it on Gospel Store Front---icy and detached. During "Seduction" Lo Moda singer Peter Quinn drones on about how love is just "a chemical process" and on "Les Jardins (de l'oubli)" Quinn blows off a relationship with pure hipster cool, "Your beat is too complicated." So yeah, while everyone else is busting a nut our guy is using Gospel Store Frontas a surrogate lover. But guess what? He's got himself one intriguing little hottie. She talks in riddles, which is just fine, because he really does love her for her mind. She's exotic as hell; man can she work that viola (Raili Haimila)! She likes it nice and slow (down-tempo makes for the best, uh, well, you know). And like I said earlier, she's ready night after night, literally on demand, no headaches and no hair to be washed. She is so cool, though, that it's just a matter of time---her voice will be calling from the wrong side of frat boy's dorm wall. From down the hall, from down the street and from around the corner. Oh, yes, she'll get around. Well too bad, Chad, you were the one afraid of commitment. Aah but once she was yours and only yours…

If you dig quirkiness a la Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers, check these guys out.
