Sara Lov: Some Kind of Champion

Singer/songwriter Sara Lov has been a longtime regular on the KCRW airwaves, first as a member of local dream-pop group Devics, then as an acclaimed solo artist. But it has been a while since we've had new music from her, a condition rectified by the impending release of her latest self-released album, Some Kind of Champion.

Produced by Death Cab for Cutie's Zac Rae and featuring guest spots from Hauschka and her old Devics partner Dustin O'Halloran, Lov's new record is a perfect antidote to the over-sized productions of so many of today's indie-pop "sensations." Brimming with subtle, but dynamic arrangements, Lov spins emotional tales that she admits are very personal to her, but are never so insular as to be obtuse. They are the kinds of intimate, passionate songs not often showcased in an ever-increasingly noisy marketplace, but are so delicately crafted as to be welcomed by anyone seeking inspiration, solace or genuine artistry.
