This week I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Lake Street Dive. My thanks for Benjy Adams for the suggestion, a man who really knows my taste and knows good music.
I’ve just realised that the acronym for the band would be LSD. I imagine that’s done on purpose – in the same way that Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds is most definitely not. This LSD are a force to be reckoned with, including six albums and a number of EPs, there was an immediate groove that I got along with.
On songs like Hypotheticals, Rich Girl and Better Than, it feels, in the best way possible, like you know the songs. There’s a pop sensibility and the groove of a tight band together at once. There are elements of Alabama Shakes, The Dip and Bahamas in there.
This is definitely a band I won’t be forgetting about any time soon.
