Lewsberg :: Out And About

Is this band the Dutch Yo La Tengo? Eh, that is probably an oversimplification — but maybe I’ve got your attention now. Lewsberg’s latest, Out And About, definitely shares a bit with YLT’s brand of winsome indie pop (more than a little Feelies in there, too), but there’s plenty of originality and imagination here, too. Half-spoken, half-sung girl/guy vocals, straight-ahead Moe Tucker thumps, alternately chiming/chugging/fuzzy guitar … it’s the good stuff, my friends! And though the songs sound friendly and catchy on the surface, the lyrics have a certain melancholy tension to them that grabs and keeps your attention. Get Out! | t wilcox
