Lovesucker is the duo of vocalist Crystal Crosby and multi-instrumentalist Zoltan Von Bury. They're from Charlotte, North Carolina, but with the funky-soul sound they produce together, you'd assume they were from much deeper in the south. For instance, opening track "Mississippi" would seem to pass for the duo's home, as well as its first single.
When Crosby tamps down the aggression significantly during "Don't You Leave Me Now," it's the first time you catch a little bit of the girl's gentle spirit. That's because, for the most part, she's a really aggressive singer. She sings with a whole lot of aggression, almost exclusively.
Musically, Lovesucker's sound leans toward the hard funk side of the fence. If you can imagine Parliament/Funkedelic infused with a large dose of punk's angry spirit, you get a picture of what this unique pair sounds like.
While this is a constantly powerful recording, it tends adhere a little too closely to the anger emotion, without too much variation. However, if you're feeling angry, but also in the mood to dance, this just might do the trick.
