My Wild West is Lissie s 3rd studio album and her most personal one to date; a fitting tribute to Lissie s life in California, from her arrival as a fresh-faced singer-songwriter to now, leaving for the Midwest wiser and more self-assured.
Their third album, Human Performance, establishes Parquet Courts as one of the best rock bands in the world right now, no qualifiers needed. This brilliant, accomplished rock band have established themselves as deserving a role in the legacy of the genre alongside The Velvet Underground, REM, Sonic Youth, Pavement.
The new album, Bad Self Portraits, is a microcosm of Lake Street Dive s evolution of the band from a weird alt-country jazz group to a pop-soul juggernaut, that includes 60s influences like Brill Building girl groups, British Invasion rock, horn-driven Stax R&B, Motown soul and even The Band-like gospel blues.
Side Pony takes its name from a song on the record that refers to a whimsical hairstyle, but it also serves as a metaphor for Lake Street Dive’s philosophy and personality as a band. This debut from Lake Street Drive is a fun, genre-less, joyful summer-time soon-to-be classic.
