#482: La Luz - Weirdo Shrine

For better or worse, there are many bands at the moment that attempt to encapsulate the way their music sounds on record. Now without taking in to account the way a live setting can breed improvisation, and the way in which the occasional fuck-up can endear us to a band (after all, musicians are only human, despite the pedestals some are placed on), there’s still a whole host of variables within a gig scenario that make mirroring recorded output all-but impossible. And this is where Seattle ‘surf-noir’ band La Luz and their second LP ‘Weirdo Shrine’ really turns things on their head.
