Legs

There's no shortage of bands making low-fi pop inspired by the '80s output of New Zealand label Flying Nun or NME's famed C-86 casette, but Bay Area band Legs are definitely making a superior product. Mind you the band's Matt Bullimore is actually from New Zealand, so maybe it's in their blood.

Whatever the reason, Legs' debut album, Pass the Ringo (out 4/23 via Loglady), is jam-packed with great songs and sunny melodies tempered with fuzz. The band are capable of maneuvering the delicate balancing act between "charmingly shambolic" and "can't play their instruments." It's definitely the former and reminds me of Television Personalities more than anything else. You can check out the video for "Two Colours" below.

No East Coast dates for Legs (not to be confused with Vancouver band of the same name) but West Coast dates are listed below.

So there is another band with that name? One of them needs to change it to Young Legs or Girls Legs or something... but not Wolf Legs, that shit is played out.
