#176 Lake Trout – Now We Know

It’s near impossible to trace Lake Trout’s jazz/dance background to their current palette. Their recent album ‘Now Them, You’ is awash with effervescent pop songs and producer Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev) provides an assured hand. But it’s the energy expelled by the band that startles. The opening seconds of ‘Now We Know’ is eerily reminiscent of My Bloody Valentines ‘Sometimes’ but quickly takes on a life of its own. Once Woody Ranere is airborne he has Bono in his sights and delivers a hugely melodic vocal performance. He is ably abetted by clever playing but Lake Trout’s sound is defined by the singers quality input. There is a lot more to come from this Baltimore band. KD
