"How is it that something so unlikely can also be so infectious, so
naturally exhilarating? Pulling in familiar elements and
irreverently scrambling and recombining them, Lake Street Dive
are at once jazz-schooled, DIY-motivated, and classically pop
obsessed. Beginning with catchy songs that are by turns
openhearted and wryly inquisitive, this northeastern quartet
proceeds to inject them with an irresistible blend of abandon and
precision. Composed of drummer Mike Calabrese, bassist
Bridget Kearney, vocalist Rachael Price, and trumpet-wielding
guitarist Mike "McDuck" Olson, Lake Street Dive encompasses a
myriad of possibilities within its members' collective experiences,
and the resultant music is a vivid, largely acoustic, groove-driven
strain of indie-pop. Lake Street Dive makes the most of pop
music virtues: solid, evocative song craft; propulsive grooves;
and Price's disarming, forthright vocals. However, it's a personal
strain of pop that is refracted through the band members' rich
backgrounds: a sinewy Motown bass line is reborn with woody
heft on Kearney's upright, Calabrese's drumming mixes
timekeeping with more adventurous jazz-inflected outbursts,
McDuck's nimble trumpet is an unexpectedly warm counterpoint
to Price's singing. It all makes for a sound with familiar roots, but
with a slant that is entirely their own."
