Stream It From The Mountain: Lady Legs - Holy Heatwave

After forming in 2012 and releasing a couple of promising singles, the Birmingham, AL based garage-rock band Lady Legs are finally set to release, Holy Heatwave, their highly-anticipated debut album tomorrow on Communicating Vessels. 
Vocalist/guitarist John Sims, guitarist Grant Galtney, bassist Seth Brown and drummer Ellis Bernstein recorded the album live to tape in the Communicating Vessels studio with producer and label head, Jeffrey Cain (formerly of Remy Zero).  With a loose 90’s slacker vibe, they sound like Pavement playing surf-rock and yet, despite the carefree, breezy melodies and jangly guitars; the lyrics reveal personal and politically-charged themes.    
The standout opening track and lead single, “Real Thing” is an energetic and bright slice of 60’s-inspired surf-pop, as Sims tries to make a real connection in a technological world.  Other standouts include, “French Beach Music” which features an effervescent guitar jangle and pedal steel that ebbs and flows like the tide, and the title track, “Holy Heatwave” with its cascading guitars and psych-pop melodies.       
Holy Heatwave is available now digitally, on CD and limited edition red vinyl in a gatefold package from Communicating Vessels here:
