FROM THE DESK OF T.L.A.

To: You, the listener.
Re: This record.

Hi - it's us again. A lot has happened since our last record: a lot of shows, a lot of mileage, a lot of friends; a tour of Japan set up by our friend Ken Sekioka; the destruction of our station wagon and the purchase of our minivan; in short, some bad times, but mostly good times. And that's all because of you listening to us. So thanks! We'll probably be playing near you soon, so come see us and say hello. We hope you're doing okay.

Love,
John, Matt, and Tobin.


REVIEW

"Absolutley brilliant album. 'Sunshine' is one of the best songs ever written. Perfect post-Smiths indie pop written along the lines of Belle & Sebastian, Looper, and others. Can't recommend highly enough."
-Amazon


"Wow, this rocks. When you start to listen to this cd, you're immediately wisked away to a beautiful beach on a radiant summer day. I just bought this cd today, and I've already listened to the 42 minute beauty four times. True Love Always consists of John Lindaman, Tobin Rodriguez (no longer a member), and Matt Datesman. These guys just make blissful music, plain and simple. The tunes on hear can penetrate through the hardest, darkest person and have them rocking out in a flash. Underneath, 'Sunshine', 'The Losing Part', and 'Rockets + Jets' are the most alluring tracks on the cd, but every song is really great."
- A. Bubul, Amazon
