6. Landlady/#1 Kid/Touching

Date: Wedneday, June 19, 2013
Time: 9pm
Venue: Littlefield (622 Degraw St, Brooklyn, New York 11217)
Tickets: $10
Genre: indie rock

Landlady is the songs of Adam Schatz (Man Man, Father Figures, Zongo Junction, Those Darlins) realized and made infinitely better by a crack team of superfriends (Ian Chang, Booker Stardrum, Ian Davis, , Mikey Freedom Hart). Tonight’s show will feature a special appearance by the Brass Magic horn section.

#1 Kid is a lovely group of gents who play the chamber- bounce, bathroom dance music of Adam Dotson. An offshoot of the indie pop/ afro-beat group Rubblebucket, #1 Kid is in its first year of life and has recently released their debut recording; an EP called Boytones produced by #1 Kid/Rubblebucket guitarist Ian Hersey. It has been called “provocative” and “cute” and “fun”. Also “sick”. “Great music to dance to or go to the bathroom to!”

Touching tackles skewed pop a la Deerhoof and Jelly-era Flaming Lips; crunchy riffs the likes of which Queens of the Stone Age recklessly exploit; and fantastical diversions as exemplified by 70s prog-rock titans Genesis. Technical acumen and screaming enthusiasm funneled into a direct and engaging sound.
