Los Angelino rabble-rousers The Gloss first sprung to our attention last spring, the debonair and yet simultaneously disreputable Words catching on our ears, fingers and tongues at once. To this day, it remains among the most winsome post-Is This It pieces of dishevelled genius, and it can now be joined by Love Is Money – a first in some while from the Californian four-piece that, if that bit more melancholy, is no less alluring for it. For all glittery guitar lines, bulbous bass parts and forlorn lyricisms slurred quite poignantly by Fernando Andrade, love may be not yet be deemed legal tender – not in most countries, at any rate – and yet The Gloss’ stock is distinctly rising with their every release.
