Lake Street Dive then--and now

Post  pinhedz on Mon Sep 28, 2015 10:13 am

2009, and the same song in 2015.

This is like how on other sites they ask you if you like acoustic Bob or electric Bob. geek

Here's the words (if you're into that kind of thing):

Elijah had brains and long legs and wears jeans at his hip
and nary a girl in the world has been missed by his grip
He's long curly hair, that when wet, goes as far as his chin
and his knowledge of poets and punks is admittedly thin

The thing I like most about him is what I see on the surface
Like two distant shores, we are bound by a love that’s an isthmus

Oh Elijah!

Elijah, he lay in psychosis one bright sunny day
and even asleep I could not make myself walk away
So pretty was he, I said something I couldn’t retract
and so for three years, we spent most of the time in the sack

Although it’s November, I know we won’t make it to christmas
Like two distant shores, we are bound by a love that’s an isthmus

Oh Elijah!

Elijah once told me in private that he’d like a break
although he revealed through his actions that he was a fake
And so, then in public I told him that he’s too dependent
and now to this day I maintain that I am unrepentant

All he can see through the tunnel is none of his business
Like two distant shores, we are bound by a love that’s an isthmus

Oh Elijah!

I think that's just because Rachael always wears really poor-fitting classes that make sore spots in the right side of her nose.

The pinhed is going to copy/paste a review.

This goes against pinhed policy, but it's happening anyway. bounce

Lake Street Dive never expected to play anywhere other than dive bars--because they were just a "Hobby group" just screwing around outside of their day jobs.

Here's the review--the only thing I would add is that Bridget Drives this bus, and Nordic Mike's first insrument is trumpet--he just fools around with the gitaar:

"Brooklyn indie pop quartet Lake Street Dive performed at UCSB’s Campbell Hall on Friday, November 6. The band arrived in town on tour while prepping for next year’s release of the follow-up to 2014 album Bad Self Portraits."

"Lead vocalist Rachael Price’s big, Winehouse-esque voice first appeared to dominate the show, but the concert revealed how all four members are virtuosic musicians and friends with a playful onstage rapport and the ability to cordially share the spotlight. Mike “McDuck” Olson doubles as a guitarist and trumpeter, and he’s so skilled in both it’s impossible to tell which is his forte. Bridget Kearney, meanwhile, deftly maneuvered along the upright bass’ fingerboard over the course of the night, and drummer Mike Calabrese provided a steady rhythm backdrop with precise stick work."

"As for the highlights of the show, the quartet gave us a taste of several new tracks that will most likely appear on the new album: “What A Spectacular Thing,” “I Rock the Side Pony” (a song inspired by McDuck’s affinity for the hairstyle), “I Don’t Care About You,” and “Hell Yeah.” The absolute peak came during “What I’m Doing Here,” when the band grouped up to sing together. They proved their versatility with tasteful covers of Annie Lennox’s “Walking on Broken Glass,” Van Halen’s “Jump,” and Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl” — a finale that had the whole hall singing along."

"If there could be one suggestion for a follow-up Santa Barbara performance, it might be to hold it at a smaller venue with more room to dance (although the folks grooving along the side walls of the interior certainly didn’t seem to mind). The band pulls off such a tight, squeaky-clean performance that you tend to believe their talent is completely inherent and unpracticed, an unfair estimation that overlooks their dedication and hard work."

"By show’s end, there’s a certain sense of appreciation that you saw the band play in person as opposed to simply listening to their records. The hard copies, while essential, don’t measure up to their performances, and pen and paper won’t do their sound justice; you quite literally have to see Lake Street Dive live to understand their talent."

So, now that Lake Street Dive has finished 2 years of touring the country, they say that they want to go back to some of the old dumps and dives in Massachusetts (sort of like Paul McCartney wanting to go back to the dives in Hamburg).

The "memory lane" tour sold out in 5 minutes, and it won't be like back in the old days, that's for shure:

I suppose I shouldn't be too hard on them

Boston has one of the more atrocious popular music scenes

What if they're from Brooklyn?

Lake Street Div is a band that was founded in 2004 in Boston, Mass. They met while attending the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.

Contempo gentrified Brooklyn's music scene is probably worse, though, judging from all the artisanal popsicle shoppes they have there. ROLF.

Boston, if where you went to school is where you're from. The blurbs usually say "Brooklyn based." study

But none of them are from Out East (although one is from Philadelphia, if that counts geek ).

well take a Talking Heads, you can call them a New York band, but they weren't like the other New York bands, and that is because they met and formed as pretentious art students at Rhode Island School of Designing

similarly, I suspect Brooklyn and the B movie actor grandfather of LSD's singer, plus McDuckian Minnesota and Massholia - these all must be factored in when trying to comprehend the unabashed OFFENSIVENESS of the LSD band.

... and, as we all eagerly await the release of their 7th album in February, we must also factor in that they are now signed with Nonesuch, which might affect their sound, but I can't say how.

Evidently Nonesuch got them matching outfits:




Anyways, here's an advance message directed right at all the haters.bounce

BSP, this was a divisive album for LSD, a controversial album for LSD, many thought Bad Self Portraits should've been called Bad Sound Engineering

many of the user reviews go like this

"i saw LSD at the county fair and they were peppy, but then i heard this song-pak and i wanted to off myself"
