The album consist of 13 new song all writing by Fontaine’s own hand.As many times before Mr.Fontaine uses many musicians on his albums, Buried & Blessed has been recorded in 3 different countries, with 13 different musicians.
Kristina Dobele (Briefing), who has never ever before, played drums in her life, is taking well care of that, she also plays the Hammond Organ & backing vocals all through the CD.Longtime music partner Anders Banke (DK), has once again has arranged the horn section on 5 tracks, giving some of the songs the Mex Tex flavor that fits Fontaine’s music universe very well.

Songs such as Mama Hell Road, Buried & Blessed, Let Me Die are representing the darker side of the album, and shows Fontaine ability to write great songs, that last for ever.

Louie Fontaine never made albums in the same style, in contrast to the dark songs, you suddenly run into happy love songs like, My Dirty Heart, Lucky Guy, I Gotta A Crush On You , all with heart breaking stories, representing the melodic side of this great album.

On the Rockie side you got the story telling rock ‘n’ roller songs New Birds In Town, about a man taking his wife, into a new strip club in town,were she ends dancing the pole, who knows maybe it’s Mrs.Fontaine. It continues with the anti plastic breast rocker Big Boob Girls that’s rocking hard, followed up by The Road a country rocker that rolls well, with a harmonica solo spicing it up.

Louie Fontaine who lived in New Orleans for a couple of years, knows his blues to the bone ,songs like Real Life, Lunch From A Can, My Babes A Liar, clearly shows how well blues can be, when not preformed the traditional way.
The album ends up with the strange one chord tune, Anti Talking Type , that talks about a hardcore relationship, on the edge of a total breakdown.
Louie Fontaine now 40, is a great song writer, that seems only getting better by age.

PRESS RELEASE : LOUIE FONTAINE NEW ALBUM EVIL LOVE

Evil Love was recorded in Black Tornado Studios in Fontaine’s native city of Copenhagen, together with the backing band Starlight Searchers.
Starting of with 40 songs, 16 songs found there way to the new album Evil Love, during the 3 week session, the album is recorded 100% analog, you will find the sound extremely comfortable and dynamic.
Louie’s voice is right up in your face and the stories told on this album, are worth digging into, it is clearly that Mr. Fontaine got what he wanted on this record, it’s meant all the way through and don`t compromise the music in anyway.
Songs like Dancing On Fire stick to your brain like glue, performed with just drums and slide guitar, the beautiful Running Hot and I Cant Resist No Pain moves into some kind of hot Mexican rocky atmosphere, with a bunch of high trompets playing along the guitar themes.The much slower country ballads Wasting Time & Today She Is Mine, two pieces of well composed music, performed extremely well, the voice is superb in these two ballads.
The albums bluesy & jazzy songs are represented with songs like I Had Enough Of You a story of a hateful relationship with a woman, who fucks around with a mechanic. Head Full Of Hate a story of a evil unfair tax department lady, ending up with the rusty voice, story telling song Six Nights.
The murderous ballad Swimming In Blood shows Mr. Fontaine’s talent of telling good stories, this time about a man who kills his wife, because he loves her to much, the words of the chorus is Kalita Kalita, which is the name of Louie’s lover at this time, who knows what happened.
Moving to the rocky part of the album Mr. Fontaine clearly show how well he manage to play Rock ’n´ Roll songs like
The World Don´t Turn, You Cant Always Love Them says it all, clean cut roots music.
The CD ends up with 2 Bonus tracks, the perverted Gang Bang Ball a real party song and another song written to Louie Fontaine by his music mentor Rockie Charles (New Orleans), who recently passed away I Got You Exited this album is dedicated to the late Mr. Charles.
To say that Evil Love is the best from Mr. Fontaine hand so far, would not be wrong to claim.

ROCK BLESS YER ALL
