Album Review and Relase Show - Lake: Giving And Receiving

Olympia, WA-born band Lake's forthcoming album, Giving & Receiving, to be released on K Records this coming Tuesday, is an experience in pure pop pleasure. Gorgeous male and female vocals, catchy rhythms, and an ample dose of keys, horns and synthesizers. Modern pop with a vintage cocktail/lounge sensibility, listening will transport you to a land where everything is groovy, but classy.
They're playing a release show April 12 at The Woods, with Portland bands Ages & Ages and the thoroughly adorable The Golden Hours. Definitely worth checking out. If, like me, you're outside the Portland area, they're on tour for the next month or so.

Great brief interview! I found LAKE last September while I was living in Los Angeles and have been obsessed with them ever since. Those warm natureesque sounds will always and forever remind me of Griffith park on a hot summer evening. I've heard the samples for Giving and Receiving and can't wait. Their records have dominated my player for the last 8 months and have been an excellent backdrop for writing. If anyone is in Seattle 5/15 they will be playing at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard,
