‘The Music Lovers should, by all rights, be major cult figures. The San Francisco band has a distinctive, immediately identifiable sound, an elegant blend of Scott Walker sweep, Serge Gainsboug slyness, British guitar pop hooks and Dusty Sptingfield soul. Even better, the group’s leader Matthew Edwards can lay fair claim to being the best songwriter in the world right now, and I don’t say that lightly.”  -    BIG TAKEOVER
