Les Vinyl Sidebar In This Week’s SI Advance

Local Journalist and music-beat reporter for the Staten Island Advance, Ben Johnson, recently wrote a nice sidebar to his main article on Ingrid Michaelson playing Snug Harbor March 6th (Les Vinyl will be the opening act). Buy your tickets here.

It’s safe to say the quartet, led by the humorous but far-from-sloppy Casey Jost, leans on some familiar indie rock ideas, like two-chord chorus hooks and danceable beats. But rhythm guitarist Jenny Miller, bassist Mike Carlo, and drummer Pat Given have something that might not be immediately noticed.

The songs themselves, perhaps best showcased in the cut “Far From New,” sound simple and open to the point of nearing naiveté, but are so well-crafted that you know they’re anything but. The tunes bounce and tumble, all under lyrics delivered effortlessly but remembered for the possibility of yet-un-plumbed depth.
