Pop culture references are a dime a dozen, nowadays. Taking influence from McCarthy’s The Road, Kirkman’s The Walking Dead, and Shute’s On The Beach to create a 12-track concept album focusing on love in an apocalyptic landscape? Not so common.
Jimi Beavis’ new album, Post-Apocalyptic Love Songs has a shiny shell at first glance, but beneath it bubbles a dark and dirty soul. Beavis draws influence from pop culture, twisted true-life headlines, and strange but true personal encounters to populate the album with characters recounting tales of death,mistakes, helplessness, and the thoughts of how to start again once the world ends.
The first single, “At Least It’s Better Than Home” truly exemplified the overall tone of the album the opening harmonica, jaunty guitar and light harmonies a deceptive veil to the Goliard-inspired dark (yet strangely optimistic) story Beavis sings of Orleans, dirty rock-and-roll…a bit of everything.”
