My immediate response to first hearing Telephone Lovers was to
surmise that the band had to be from Los Angeles. I got that right,
although I may have been about 40 years off in pinning down the time
frame! Telephone Lovers' self-titled debut just screams "L.A. power pop"
- and in my mind I see this band sharing a stage with The Nerves or
20/20 in 1977. Telephone Lovers take it back to a time when power pop
was one of our purest forms of rock n' roll - coming on like modern day
heirs to the likes of Dwight Twilley, The Raspberries, Flamin' Groovies,
and Scruffs. Even with an added pinch of New York Dolls/Hollywood Brats
street tough glamour, the vibe here is so perfectly mid-'70s power pop
that it's not hard to imagine any of these tracks turning up on the old
Rhino Come Out and Play compilation. - FASTER & LOUDER
Brilliant, self-titled, period-perfect power-pop from just yesterday!
These Angelenos clearly marinated in the streamline and stripped-down
tunefulness of Paul Collins Beat, 20/20, Dwight Twilley, Flamin'
Groovies, and all the other usual suspects. Telephone Lovers ape that
dry production and tight, verging-on-distorted guitar sound, midtempo
drive, and drawly vocals all the best records of the genre featured.
Pick any track – "Downtown Girl," "Without You," anything – pop it into
your boom box, and find yourself transported into the eternal 1979 of
skinny ties and skinnier sounds. Nice attention to detail. - Austin Chronicle
