Landlady
Landlady
Landlady is an adventure pop group based in Brooklyn, the songs of Adam Schatz (keyboard and horn provider for the likes of Little Joy, Hospitality, Sleigh Bells, Those Darlins) realized by a 6 piece power band, featuring a two headed drum monster and a crew of instrumental powerhouses bringing a uniquely personal sound, led by Schatz's vocals and Farfisa. The music takes the rock and roll instrumentation and orchestrates it dynamically, creating a sound that big, unexpected, and quite quite fun.

Kelly Pratt is Bright Moments.

He's the guy up at night by himself, stitching songs together in his New York City apartment all winter. There's a special art to making an album in the spare seconds that the rest of a regular life can't quite reach. Recorded track-by-track-by-track with Pratt on most of the instruments in his apartment studio during the New York City winter of 2010, this slow-motion musicianship became Natives (Luaka Bop).

Natives may be your first official introduction to the music of Bright Moments but if you have spent time with some of the most beloved indie albums of the last decade, you'll quickly realize that you know him well. He is the multi-instrumentalist whose trumpet sparks across so many of Beirut's songs and whose harmonizing vocals is a central component to the band's robust live performances. He has also shouldered everything from flugelhorn to flute to bring Arcade Fire's Neon Bible to life, and was part of the horn section that LCD Soundsystem used during its sunset days.
