Artist Of The Day: Lasorda

One of the cooler side project "supergroups" I've heard about in recent times is Lasorda. The most recognizable name of the group is The Get Up Kids vocalist Matt Pryor, but don't expect to hear his voice lead songs in this project other than on "Sleep When You Are Dead". Instead, get used to hearing Suzannah Johannes' sweet voice, which goes perfectly well with the synths that dominate the project. Rounding out Lasorda is Nate Harold (fun., The Honorary Title, Waking Ashland), Dustin Kinsey (The New Amsterdams), Mike Strandberg (Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band), and Josh Adams (Ghosty), bringing a wide diversity of indie rock influences together to create a really solid debut effort. You can currently stream the album's first two tracks "The Age Of Wonder" and "Interlaid" on the band's Soundcloud page, and look forward to hearing the rest of this great album when it is released on December 11th.
