LAKE / Let’s Build a Roof

Indie sunny dream pop with a subtle smoothness and whimsically raw vocals. Very Airy and Earthy sounding. Produced by Karl Blau, very natural sound without an overly “composed” sound, though don’t be fooled. These songs are very well-thought out. The sleepy sounding vocals by Eli Moore deliver catchy, yet complex songs. I really like this album. Similar to Camera Obscura, Marshmallow Coast, Julie Doiron, Architecture in Helsinki, Au Revoir Simone, No Kids.
FCC CLEAN! Try: 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, (I really liked this album?)

1. **relaxed, dreamy, nice vocals tambourines, piano, glittering electric leads 2. “ooh’s” relaxed, yet slightly off-kilter beat, little electronic bits in background, saxophone 3. upbeat, cool nice whimsical tune and vocals, airy with muted cheer: soujourn into Margaritaville… 4. *** more upbeat, light but deceptively rugged garage-rock with clever back and forth between vocals 5. **really twinkling and whimsical female vocals subtle, upbeat pop 6.* more experimental, shrouds of reverb, light vocals, violin, twinkly, dissonant guitar riffs fade it out, bells? 7. *** really nice, chilled out guitar riff and smooth vocals, catchy yet simple and suave per se? 8. ***more upbeat, more energy, yet still relaxed and very pretty, really cool guitar solo in middle 9. ***slinky mid-tempo song about camping, soul inflected sounds, great range of horns 10. ****upbeat, horns, smooth vocals, tambourine, great track 11. ***camera obscura feel, really great track 12. really interesting beat and blend of bass to create melody with interspersed vocals and bursts of sound
