David Myles – “Real Love” Release
David Myles returns to Shivering Songs with a full band in tow, to release Real Love at the Boyce Farmers’ Market. Rock ’n’ roll’s diverse, electrifying roots dig deep into this, Myles’ tenth album. You can hear them in the old-school Johnny Cash shuffle and lightning-in-a-bottle twang of “Night And Day.” They pull you by the hand and dance slowly to the swingy drums and ‘50s-era, Roy Orbison croon of “Easy.” With the rousing orchestral thrill of “Night After Night,” they sprawl out into simmering soul, as Myles seethes at a lover who’s been running around with another. Over Real Love’s thirteen tracks, those roots grow into a spectacular family tree of American musical tradition—with all its blood, sweat, and tears—that’s as endlessly entertaining as it is riveting. Real Love’s tendency to mix lush arrangements and danceable rhythms with timeless rock ’n’ roll structures has led some early listeners to dub the album’s vibrant sound “Elvis in Motown”. Real Love is an absorbing rejuvenation of rock ’n’ roll’s dramatic power—it will make you dance, weep, and never forget where you were the first time you felt it. That’s how you know love is real, after all.
