Teeth People bring Lou Reed's voice (and more) back to Webster Hall on 12.03

Teeth People bring Lou Reed's voice (and more) back to Webster Hall on 12.03

If - like us - you still can't get over the loss of NYC's one and only Lou, you might find some relief in the music of NYC's Teeth People, and in particular in Colin Keane's vocals. His casual tenor can be strikingly similar to Reed's one, like in streaming song "French Entrance," which sounds pretty much like a (quite brilliant) tribute to the influential NYC songwriter. But the band is obviously much more than that: their peculiarly devious and quirky brand of classic rock draws a parallel with the creative revival of bands like Foxygen - which we dug to the point of putting them on the cover of our mag very early on. Teeth People has been on a roll in the past twelve month, releasing four EPs that illustrate the development towards a more mature sound. Debut "Teething' is a lo-fi three song sampler that showcases a band open to anything from indie rock to ska and even jazzy chord progressions. Sophomore EP "Rich Man" and third effort "Cavities" furtherly expand the band's genre palette, with African rythms, funk and soul thrown in the mix. Latest release "Let's Go" showcases an improved production and a more coesive and focused sound. It's a fun listen, that - if translated well on stage - has great entertainment potential. You can find our if that's the case when Teeth People play Webster Hall on December 3rd.
