LOVE ALIEN's newest CD is available
LOVE ALIEN's new cd "In The Waves" (available at www.cdbaby.com/lovealien) is an eclectic mix of world-beat , space pop, heavy alt-rock, avant-alt-rock etc.
Legends Magazine says about "In The Waves":
"...a tasty mix of fuzzy, funky, jammy and grungy guitars and Jill's pure angelic voice... nothing like the heavy metal, hard rock or abrasive punk
I usually listen to, but thats why I like it: for me, Love Alien is something totally new. The music on the album is so good and Jill's voice is so
pretty I had no choice but like it and listen again and again and again. If you need a positive and soulful change of pace, from your hard rock or hip-
hop...give Love Alien a listen...mixes well with mellow grunge, Neil Young, Kate Bush, Phish and Tori Amos"
