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”.

TRACK LIST:

  1. “LoveBlood”
  2. “Mississippi Isabel”
  3. “Bam Bam”
  4. “Love Lust”
  5. “Polar Bear”
  6. “Lady Percy”
  7. “Ivory Road”
  8. “The Brightest Lights (feat. Mumford and Sons)”
  9. “Beating Hearts”
  10. “Coco Chitty”
  11. “Wilde Love”
