The only album by Lovage, Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By was released on November 6th 2001.
"It's an album of stylish, funky, dreamy trip-pop, with hip-hop allusions here and there and a slightly cartoonish side."
The album features sexually hyper moods, lazy trip hop beats and a wicked sense of humour. It pays homage to French artiste Serge Gainsbourg and the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.
"It was really Dan's project, I just tried to fill a role, and in some ways it was moreacting than music. There was a lot of performance on that record. I was basically playing a persona, which was a lot of fun. Jennifer and I didn't do much of it together, but the stuff we did do together was pretty entertaining. There were definitely some episodes involved in that that I shouldn't disclose." - Mike Patton 2013PopMatters | 2002
Lovage isn't a cohesive concept album as much as it's a half-joking, half-serious stab at romantic mood music. While what "sexy" means no doubt varies from person to person, it's hard to imagine that most people will find the album as a whole to be music for love-making. Still, it isn't a complete joke either -- there's plenty of moments where the vibe steams up more than you might expect.
