An eclectic mixed bag of pop and rock, Spottiswoode & His Enemies recently released their sixth studio album, English Dream. The New York based band, fronted by Jonathan Spottiswoode, has been together since the late Nineties. A fixture of the New York music scene, they released their debut album, Ugly Love, in 1998. The band’s sound is strewn with ballads, flourishes of jazz and gospel touches that make for a hard-to-describe yet engaging musical experience. “No Time For Love” is the kind of piano driven pop song that sounds like something of a deep track from a Randy Newman or Ben Folds album, with a catchy chorus and sentiment. Spottiswoode & His Enemies play World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, Delaware on Thursday, May 1st, and are at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Saturday, May 24th. Stream or download “No Time For Love” below.
