“Life of Leisure” (by The Laureates)
This Chicago band has been an EFD favorite going back to their first EP in 2007, and they're finally heading east for a couple of NYC shows! They've drawn comparisons to Guided By Voices and Big Dipper, among others, with production that hints at a more twisted wall of sound than even Phil Spector could have imagined. Their songs are plain-spoken and plaintive, with more hooks than a fleet of tow trucks. Catch them live at Arlene's Grocery on Friday April 9, and Pianos on Saturday the 10th; their new EP No Kontrol is out now on the Funambulist label.
