Blake Rainey and His Demons
Love Don’t Cross Me
TWO SHEDS MUSIC 2014

Blake Rainey's most recent LP effort, A Man, Not A Biography (Spin Magazine - 7 out of 10 stars) might just signal the swan song of his longtime group, The Young Antiques, but after last year's live-in-the-studio EP Ambulance Alley Sessions, the Atlanta rocker/singer-songwriter is back with a full length studio album with his current outfit, Blake Rainey and His Demons (which consists of Joe Foy on bass and Eric Young on drums - a dazzling combination of talent that make them one of the music scene's best rhythm sections). The result is Love Don't Cross Me, a stoic and stylistically schizophrenic meditation on the prizes and perils of love—nine concise tunes that lay bare the puzzle pieces of those epic, classic human relationships we all know too well.

From indie-pop to country rock, punk to noise to folk, Love Don't Cross Me is a return to the character studies Rainey does so well, with songs that swing from naive young lovers to the hopelessly lost and alone, to forgotten losers who spit in love's face, to long-time lovers reflecting on their lives together. All in roughly 35 minutes.

lyrics

Oh, she's a devil
Who knew how to please
Well the things she'd do to me
Full of fire and fury
She could bring me to my knees
It's clear and plain to see

That the angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her all along

A wolf in sheep's clothing
With whom she's been confused
A violent lover, misunderstood
Brandishing her pistol
That she conceals underneath
A red riding hood

Yes the angels were wrong about her all along

That the angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her all along

Oh sweet devil
Who knew how to please
Well the things you do to me
Full of fire and fury
She could bring me to my knees
It's clear and plain to see

That the angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her all along

That the angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her
The angels were wrong about her all along

Oh she's a devil
Oh sweet devil
Oh she's a devil
