Love and Loch Lomond

I love the Penny Jam. Right before I moved here I spent a solid day just listening to all the artists they've worked with and their selections are almost entirely inside my tastes in music. I decided to drop in today whilst perusing the intertubes and came across these guys.

Loch Lomond has got a great sound, mixing folk and acoustic instrumentation with a definable modern sense of rhythm and composition. There are some very tight vocal arrangements here and I'm very impressed with their live sound. I can't wait to hear what they sound like inside a studio with time to overdub and noodle about with levels.

Side Note: Right around minute three I swear I can hear a DC hardcore breakdown coming and I have to admit, I kind of want to remix the tune to include it.

Loch Lomond returns to Portland on February 4th, 2010 at the Doug Fir Lounge.
