SVNSNS006 : I DO NOT LOVE "Worship" Tape is OUT NOW

It's been a long time coming but we're happy to announce that I DO NOT LOVE's incredible heart felt music is now out on a tape in a fine-looking blue cassette shell. The whole tape is over 40min long and it's so great that I struggle to find words to describe the music of this young man from Massachusetts.
I guess that the first words that come to my mind are intense, beautiful, emotional.

Rough Trade says : "gloriously morose and romantic pop tinged with a dark heart on svn sns records. i do not love is a mysterious youngster from massachusetts, that we much we know. from his 'worship' debut cassette we might also deduce that he is lonely and though young possesses a wonderful baritone that john maus would be proud of. melodically, i do not love is indeed in love with the melancholy vocal lines pioneered by morrissey or even frank sinatra, but the backing track belies a knowledge of the cure / echo and the bunnymen jangle. there's also elements of post-industrial loops and ghosted-out atmospherics smothering the tape liberally. accomplished and filled with the extreme emotion of youth, i do not love hits several of the right spots at the same time."
