The Library

A couple of nights ago, a friend from out of town wanted to check out some live music, so we went to see what was going on at the Living Room. There were a few decent acts, the best of which was the Library, a mellow, catchy folk-rock group from Brooklyn.

The frontman has a distinctive, feminine singing voice that initially made me suspect he might be the guy from Wheatus. It works particularly well with that of the drummer, who sings most of the backup. Throw in a lap steel guitar, and you've got some very tender pop music. Good stuff to sit and sip a beer to on a Tuesday night.

They've apparently finished a new full-length record called The King of Silverlake. It has no release date yet, but they played the title track at the show, and it was very nice. The tracks below come from their 2009 EP The Life and Times of Rosa Lee.
