Led by keyboardist and songwriter Adam Schatz, Landlady’s lush, symphonic soundscapes on sophomore record ‘Upright Behaviour’ pull influence from everyone from Sly and the Family Stone to the Pixies. Such is the effervescent nature of the piece, you’d almost miss the existential tones embedded into the tracks. Schatz’s examination on the human condition, however, proves life affirming, and the album offers uplifting instrumentation, huge choruses and the frontman’s soulful but booming vocals at every turn.
To celebrate the end of this great year that saw them tour with Man Man and Rubblebucket," Landlady is throwing a holiday season party at Mercury Lounge called "Landlady Holiday Spectacular" on December 8, featuring also Deli favorite Celestial Shore, Xenia Rubinos, Cantina and many more - all proceeds from the event will be donated to the Bushwick School of Music.
