As mentioned, Bay Area band Legs will release their debut album, Pass the Ringo, this week (4/23) on Log Lady records. (Again this Legs is not to be confused with the Vancouver band of the same name.) Owing more than a little to '80s New Zealand bands and UK indie like Television Personalities, it's packed with warm, messy pop that never obscures the great songs with too much distortion or reverb. You can stream the whole record below.
You can order Pass the Ringo from Log Lady Records now. All upcoming tour dates (none on the East Coast) are listed, along with the album stream, below.
