Church of My Love

I was lucky to catch Church of My Love, a five-piece from Montgomery, Alabama, playing their first show in New York. Highlighted by guitarist Raidy Hodges’ country-inspired indie jangle, the Church’s songs tumbled together a variety of prominent styles from the past forty-plus years. At one point, I thought I heard the bright rumble of the Velvets’ “What Goes On,” and Hodges occasionally reflected the palette of introspective 80’s bands like R.E.M. and the Go-Betweens. While barking like David Johansen in the early Dolls, lead singer Frank Thomas’s near-constant twisting came straight from the legacy of Wooly Bully. The result was a party rock that had done its homework. Reaching into a different vocabulary, keyboardist Andy Dale Petty grafted a synth line onto one song that sounded like a shaky, sped-up sonar ping; it was as if an unknown, musical creature emerged from the depths of DBA and swam over the music.
