Love Theme played Space Bar on 9/26. Who is Love Theme? It’s Alex Zhang Hungtai (of the now defunct projects Dirty Beaches and Last Lizard), along with Austin Milne, and Simon Frank, ‘Love Theme’ is arranged from an improvised session with twin saxophones, synthesizer, percussion, drum machine, and voice.
Being able to hear the self titled album played live is an experience. I’ll do my best to try and do it justice with an explanation of sorts.
It’s a narrative versed in lament. It’s a forgotten memory being rearranged before your very eyes. It’s the meeting or re-encounter of lost souls in a different time and place. All these feeling and emotions were transmitted at the show.
The only organic instruments were the saxophones and yet the cables came alive. The room expanded. The room caved in. The room was breathing.
