Perhaps most impressive is how Let's Build a Roof traverses so much ground without making a big deal about it. Between the polyrhythmic "Gravel" and "Madagascar"'s sojourn into Margaritaville, it's amazing that LAKE never seem to be playing to the hackey-sack set. Similarly, closer "Christmas Island" cops a Camera Obscura feel without sounding derivative.
The indie pop collective from Olympia known as LAKE released one of 2008's most enjoyable records made by an indie pop collective with Oh, the Places We'll Go. In fact, it was just plain enjoyable, filled with soulful jams and quietly happy tunes perfect for summertimes. The 2009 follow-up, Let's Build a Roof, is less cheery and laid-back and more experimental and melancholy. The change isn't drastic; it's not like they've become Battles or signed to Tzadik.
Lake - Let's Build A Roof. Any of you that know me moderately well (or even very little) should know that I'm a big Adventure Time geek. Well I finally came across Lake and their album Let's Build a Roof and while I'm never big on the indie sound this album is awesome.
LAKE’s Let’s Build A Roof is an intriguing listen, both in its variety of sounds and the quality of the songwriting therein. In fact, one of its greatest qualities is how frequently it throws the listener a curveball. One minute it’s smooth-rock, the next it’s funky and powerful. But best of all, it’s a fantastic listen from beginning to end. Similar Albums: Desolation Wilderness – New Universe Fleetwood Mac – Rumours The Microphones – It Was Hot, We Stayed in the Water.
