Landshapes - "Ader"

Photo by Stephanie Sian Smith
Landshapes are the kind of band that England used to have a ton of. They're fun, a little weird, completely danceable, and that great blend of alternative and pop without being completely studio manufactured. The band was formerly known as Lulu and the Lampshades, but took on a new musical sound after discovering guitar pedals, and a mis-billing in Paris gave them the name Landshapes. "Ader" is available on their newest album, Heyoon. The band describes their sound as "wonky pop," which sounds pretty much right. It takes classic British dance bands like Pet Shop Boys, mixes in 90s Brit pop, and brings it all to the current day.

Heyoon is out now on Bella Union. You can order it here. To keep track of Landshapes, head over to their website or like them on Facebook or Twitter.
