Love Child is the second studio release by Ann Arbor, Michigan-based band Ella Riot, formerly My Dear Disco.[2] Being a studio recording and final release, Love Child is the band's second definitive work. It was engineered and recorded at Mission Sound studio.[3] The band released a music video of the album's fourth track "It Could Be". The song's theme is "liberation" and according to band founder Tyler Duncan the video's concept is: "an unlikely person having the ideal response to our music."[4] An album review by Mark Deming of AllMusic characterized the music as pop, influenced by funk, techno and house, and called the band's approach original.[1] The last track "Clubbin" has bagpipes as the lead instrument,[4] with Deming calling the fusion of bagpipes and guitars "a welcome bit of inspired lunacy".[1]
