Here's a band demanding a little more their audience. Les Racquet turn through more directions in track 'Too Young's ' fantastic harmonies than most bands get through in an album. The trio met up in Brooklyn under two years, and already have a full-length under the belts. But their sound is even more ambitious. There's an almost schitzophrenic cocktail here that moves from punk to Afrobeat to acid jazz in equal turns, but never pulls away from the meat and potatoes required of any ambitious young group. Like an iPod playlist come to life, this is a group you'll find impossible to pin down, but easy to get down to. See them when they play The Studio at Webster Hall on April 11th with Not Blood Paint. - Mike Levine (@goldnuggets)
