Vincent Kircher (of Jaill) and Martha Cannon (of Lady Cannon), came together with a crew of Milwaukee’s finest to form L’Resorts, who are making funky garage-esque indie rock tunes. “Highs and Lows” is the band’s latest offering of a killer tune, with dueling vocals that remind me a bit of The Dutchess and The Duke. The fuzzy guitars are nicely juxtaposed with lighter elements (what sounds like marimba if I’m not mistaken) and pop sensible choruses with “Woahs” for you to sing along. The group has an album that just came out last Friday, and if you dig what you hear below, you can check out the rest of the album on their Bandcamp page.
We’re nearing the release of Highs and Lows by the Black Watch, which means it’s time to share a new single from the long-running act. This is our second taste of what’s to come, and I’ve been really impressed with what’s coming out. There’s a juxtaposition from the guitar work, at point sounding bright whilst churning out a slight jangle, though it’s contrasted with a darker tone that also lurks throughout. This darkness is reemphasized by John Andrew Frederick’s voice, though he does take on a smooth croon during the chorus. You’re likely to hear slight hints of psychedelia, but that’s one of the great things to appreciate about the band…you’ll love them, but you’ll never be able to define them. Pop Culture Press will have the record out this weekend!
