The Test Drive: Joe Symes and the Loving Kind – Joe Symes and the Loving Kind
If you want to take an infectious musical ride of the loving kind then give the eponymous album by Joe Symes and the Loving Kind a listen. These guys are musical historians with a key to the creation box. Seamlessly mixing elements of The Beatles, Queen, The Kinks and a huge chunk of their own originality Joe and the gang are able to create an indie masterpiece that can actually stand the test of time and that is a rare thing to say about any band less than 20 years old.
Every song is a surprise in the way a good novel has a story changing plot twist in every chapter. “Fine Line” and “Ready To Ride” would normally have little in common musically but there they are, right next to each other on the album and they compliment each other very well.
Joe Symes and the Loving Kind is definitely what I would call a travel album. Get in the car, load it up, and just let it play as you coast down the highway and enjoy the moment.

Not every band gets the privilege to play at NOEL GALLAGHER and The High Flying Birds Official After Show Party but JOE SYMES & THE LOVING KIND did and when you hear them you’ll know why!
