During Record Store 2023, I had the great pleasure of seeing Love Montage perform on the indoor stage of Vinyl Tap. Lyrically, his music has always touched on relationships, love and sex; delivered with an optimistic shine. Seeing them live, it all burst forth with even more exuberance. The band was full of legitimate swagger and brought a full-on good time with them. With that context, the latest single Inglewood Shandy is ratcheted up a notch. It’s already a shiny slice of summer on its own but imagining a band of beaming smiles delivering it makes it that much more endearing.
