Friday night LAKE played at Northern with Agesandages and Generifus. Recently having released Giving and Recieiving [KLP228] on K, the band played songs such as “Roger Miller” off the new album, one of my favorites. Seeing them live is a magical experience. The paper lanters hanging around the stage seemed to dance with the crowd swaying. As musicians they are deeply talented and have a way of projecting their over-all feel onto the audience. The stage no longer is a stage but a platform for something out of the ordinary. After seeing shows multiple times a week I’ve noticed that most bands lack in their ability to turn the stage into their own. LAKE‘s music is free flowing, melodic, jam like, but wise in its structure.
Here is a video of one of their songs I recorded:
