Ian McCutcheon's grim news about Mojave 3 nixing future recording sessions comes from the source; he was their drummer when he founded the Loose Salute. Tuned to Love draws from the same floppy-haired '60s popsters that Mojave 3 evidently basked in while recording their Spoon and Rafter LP, but nothing here warms as immediately as the inspired beauties that McCutcheon backed on that album; the Loose Salute's well runs dry at times. The Latin brass in 'Photographs and Ticketsâ?� smacks of Love's Forever Changes, but Tuned to Love's tussle with copyright infringement springs from the more-than-a-nod-to-'Good Vibrationsâ?� twinkling opener, 'Death Club.â?� McCutcheon's lead vocal on 'Death Clubâ?� soars alongside organ riffs and his galloping kick drum, while the gently rolling acoustics of 'Ballad of the Dumb Angelâ?� finds the Loose Salute at their bare best.
