A few EPs under their belt, and it sounds like Lofi Legs are set to drop their debut LP, Lamb. Our first listen is this lovable ditty that combines the playful with swelling harmonies mixed between real-life partners Maria and Paris. Aside from this slowly sidewinding guitar and recording fuzz, there’s really nothing else, yet that’s the magic the group share; they’re able to captivate listeners such as myself just relying upon simplicity and purity of melody. There’s this natural sense of longing, or perhaps yearning, that pervades the tune; one can only hope to enjoy the love penned on this number.
This brand new Tuff Sunshine track came into the ATH offices this morning, and it’s really hard to turn it off. It recalls that perfect era of indie rock, at least to me, during the late 90s and early 00s where Americana and punk rock all started to fuse (outside the emo realm). It’s got this incredible groove that drives it, but there’s also this distinctive quality that makes it feel like the brother of Superchunk, just a bit warmer on the ears. The NYC trio will release Fire in the Hero Building on October 31st.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/tuffsunshine_dreamin.mp3]
