Release Date: Out Now
There’s something about the stuttering, stumbling beat of this new release from London quartet the Lazlo Device that draws you in. ‘Known to You’ sounds like a Jazz tune wafting from a Denmark Street side alley but as it grows through some sax notes and keyboard ripples you emerge in to a more modern and less traditional world. This has tones of Manchester bands like Delphic or Everything Everything and breathy urgency that never really erupts in the way you might expect as it’s too busy throwing some Spanish guitar in to the mix. I’m more than a little intrigued by this tune but if I had the chance to get behind the mixing desk I think I’d probably dial down the sax a little more.
