If this song had a tongue, it would be something that would taste itself. What Two Inch Punch has done to The Child Of Lov’s “Give Me” is nothing short of amazing, almost making it reach the borderline of something on the level of Andre 3000/Outkast.

New indie rock band The Child Of Lov combine a bit of garage distortion with a bit of groove, sounding a bit like some serious lo-fi midwest funk, as if they met up with George Clinton, the MC5 and Iggy Pop and said “let’s rock this out in a gym”. The end result is their debut single called “Heal”, the picture sleeve of which looks like this.
A video for the song has been created, and looks like this.
I have to make a confession. The Child Of Lov are not a band, which means they’re not a “they” nor are they “are”. The Child Of Lov is a child, or in truth a grown-man doing the one-man band thing and his name is… well, for now it’s a secret. We do know The Child Of Lov is a single individual, and as for how he looks? That’s unknown either, for this is what the record label offered as a promotional pic.
It reminds of a certain album cover by Leo Sayer so… is this guy Leo Sayer? Is he a Strutter? HUH?
Eh maybe not, but if you like The Child Of Lov’s music, put value in him. Also of interest is the B-side, a cover of D’Angelo’s “One Mo’ Gin”. Yes, we have now lived long enough to where artists are doing D’Angelo covers, and that’s a good thing. You may order the single directly from Double Six Records by clicking here.
The funk of chicken makes the heart grow fonder for pollo, and when that manok gets hot and ready for serving, it’s time to tell everyone to give you some moa. The Child Of Lov know the deal, since he called his song “Rotisserie”, and the cover displays a collage of photos in the shape of a chicken. Is this poultry soul? You tell me, but it is definitely cool enough for kuku.
