Mini Reviews: “LoveBlood” by King Charles

It was the summer of 2012 and I was working with McMaster University’s Student Success Centre on their Welcome Week production of IRIS when I first came into contact with the musical wonder that is King Charles. During a rehearsal one day, our director and a friend of mine, put on the song “Ivory Road” for warm-up/break and I instantly fell in love. From that point, I grabbed hold of the album and I was not disappointed in the slightest by its contents.

Each song flowed into one another flawlessly, creating a perfect range of both upbeat tunes and pleasant melodies. It’s a great album for those breezy autumn days and is an ideal companion for the transitional time from those autumn days into the wintery cold that lay ahead. While I enjoy the album as a whole, my favourite songs from the record include (and are not limited to), “Ivory Road”, “Lady Percy”, and “Mississippi Isabel”.
