Stuart McLamb had to make a big move to complete his new album under the moniker The Love Language. Baby Grand got its start in a warehouse in Virginia, but it was McLamb's move to the west coast that prompted a creative surge that completed the collection. Each song inhabits its own universe and stands alone, but it also holds together as an expression of McLamb's creative vision.
The Love Language will play Raleigh's Lincoln Theater as part of the Hopscotch Music Festival tonight.
You can hear the new songs from Baby Grand on WUNC Music and at 91.5 HD2. Stuart will be a guest DJ on WUNC Music tomorrow afternoon. He'll be spinning records live from Hopscotch alongside members of Superchunk, Waxahatchie and other Merge Records artists.
