ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This debut CD from acclaimed dark-cabaret band The Love Markets offers an evocative and wickedly beautiful vision of a world in which we are all on the market, looking for love against a backdrop of loss, greed, and political corruption. Lighting the way through the shadows with a glittering path of songs of debauchery, hilarity, art, war, whores, sailors and revolution, "World Of Your Dreams" may be the only album on record that includes both an elegy for the dead and a dirty song about wiener schnitzel. "Irresistible... Louise's lyrics are satirical, sexy and sad... The band's intoxicating theatricality comes alive and sets whole audiences to dreaming of running away with this deliciously dark carnival." - Seattle Magazine

"The Love Markets are a unique group of super-talents." - TalkinBroadway.com

"Ruffle-clad ruffians... Louise is a singer, songwriter and actress with fearsome chops." - City Arts (Seattle)

"Achtung!!" - Seattle Times

"Terrific... Powerful." - The SunBreak

"Louise shows an emotional range most performers shy away from... Sensational." - Seattle Gay News

More than your money's worth!
Angie Louise is such a gifted composer, lyricist, and singing actress -- or acting singer. Neither term sounds quite captures how her voice and manner keep changing to reflect the tone and import of each song. The songs themselves have enormous range , from the bitterness of "Banks of the Lake Wannsee" and "Wings of a Lie" to the naughtiness of "My Little Wiener Schnitzel" and the social criticism of "Ballad of the Housing Bubble." This last is an excellent example of how the CD brilliantly evokes the Weimar period in Germany while simultaneously addressing issues and ideas of our own time. In all this, Angie Louise has terrific support from the other members of The Love Market, each of them outstanding on his instrument (s). Finally, thank you to The Love Markets for the well-produced CD, with its photographs and booklet including all the lyrics, which are rewarding just to read like poems. Too many CDs these days give you hardly anything beyond the disk itself. "World of Your Dreams" gives you more than your money's worth!

echoes of old
The appeal of this disc begins with its folk music base, a haunting and energetic current of sounds that veers into jazz and swing. Angie Louise's voice is edgy and flexible and tells the sad-hopeful stories in a way that turns drear into lovely. Terrific supporting musicians that flesh out Angie Louise's compositions and lyrics in a way that seems just right. So glad I own this CD! Danke schoen, Love Markets!

Outstanding Debut!
Seattle singer-chanteuse Angie Louise and her band The Love Markets offer a delightfully eclectic and unique listening experience. Her sultry vocals move from the Berlin cabaret-style title tune to the 1920s march of "Slipwrecked", the plaintive reflection of "Little Nest" and the shadowed whimsy of "Undertaker's Waltz" with mellifluous ease. Not since The Squirrel Nut Zippers have I heard such an impressive collection of original material!!

World of your Dreams
This is a fabulous band and a terrific cd. The musicianship of all 5 members is outstanding. Angie Louise's music, voice and lyrics are amazing in their range, from tender and poignant to smart and satirical to rollicking fun. The Love Markets are an experience not to be missed!
