Good Tunes and Harsh Winds

31 Jan

© Sarah CassThe internet hates me.   It makes me fall in love with a new band everyday.  Today, my heart belongs to Lake.  Lake have recently released their 3rd album (12th if you include all their recorded full lengths with or without release) “Oh, The Places We’ll Go” on K recs. There is only one video of them that I can find on youtube and its crap quality, so I have nothing at the moment to share.  Except to say that you should take the extra second it takes to go here and listen to the song “blue ocean blue” off their new album.  If that don’t make you smile I don’t know what will.  Their bio sums it up better than I ever could:

“Listening to LAKE is like pouring sugar in your ears. They’ll turn your brain into chocolate, 67% cacao.”

Lake will be playing their next show on Feb 19th in Portland and will also be appearing at this year’s SXSW in march. 


In other news related to portland area musicians: Melanie Valera, of Tender Forever fame and past Favorite Things contributer, is trying to raise money to rebuild her parent’s home that was pretty well destroyed by a recent catastrophic wind storm in the south of France.  A total of four fir trees fell on the house and it’s in pretty bad shape.  For anyone interested in learning more or helping Melanie’s family out please visit her blog here
