Review: The Lovemakers, ‘Let’s Be Friends’

Review: The Lovemakers, ‘Let’s Be Friends’: Aidin Vaziri | Scott Blonde and Lisa Light’s romantic relationship may have fizzled out a long time ago, but they continue to make beautiful music together as the Lovemakers. After getting a taste of major-label life with 2005’s “Times of Romance,” the Bay Area electro-pop outfit has now found a home with San Francisco’s Talking House Records for its second full-length album. Relieved of commercial expectations, they are free to indulge in their love of swooshing synthesizers, dirty glam-funk rhythms and libido-driven outbursts like “I make my money by shaking my ass!” The Lovemakers come close to modern pop perfection with “Love Is Dead,” a song that surges forward on a big hook and bigger heartbreak.
