Every now and then there comes a band that floats between genres, and all you can really say is that the music makes you feel genuinely warm and fuzzy inside — i am Love’s “Pillar of Salt” is a perfect example of that. After recovering for twelve months from a near-death car accident, frontman Joshua Christopher would meditate while strumming his guitar as melodies and inspiration came to him. We gotta say, we’re sure glad that they did. Starting off as a singer/songwriter project, i am Love is now comprised of seven members playing a variety of unique instruments such as zither, banjo and sax as well as percussion, keys and guitar. The end result is a whirlwind of trippy, lulling music floating around in your head. If you missed them at CMJ, then you’re in luck because the band has been touring extensively and is releasing their debut self-titled album on January 20th.
