Thematically centered around social anxiety, personal loss and other relatable content, the second full length from The Dovecotes is more than aptly titled. Humorless speaks on sadder subject manner, with the music not always reaching as low.
Staying on their same course of jangly dream pop, Humorless is the perfect follow-up chapter for the near two year old quartet. Over the course of eight days the band recorded and stripped down their new set of songs to keep their same powerful chord progressions and dynamic arrangements, with the help of producer Skyler Norwood. The results are complex and at times a bit unpredictable, though still true to The Dovecotes sound.
Celebrate the release of Humorless, along with a new album from the band Team Evil, tonight at the Alberta Street Pub. Your next chance to catch The Dovecotes won't be until the end of next month, during their show at the Secret Society with Risley and A Certain Smile.
