Temper into Tempest



Portland is full of 'em too.  

So when I read about Lucius, I thought "oh damn, another soggy washed out folk group" producing songs that sound like every other song from that environment.

And then I listened.

If I am drooling please forgive me.  Their sound, running the gamut from 60's girl group to 80's Abba is just perfect.  Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig - the two vocalists - are in fact Agnetha and Frida when they want to be.  And they certainly hit it out of the park with "Tempest".

We are two ships passing
How long will this last
We haven't had the time to work it out

But don't stop here, go listen to their killer R&B number "Turn It Around".  And anything else you can find by them because they are the real deal.

I am totally hooked.

Wait. I used to know how to do hyperlinks. OK, as I was saying, Hipsters calls to mind Eddie Valient saying "Toons" right after <a href="”>this scene in Roger Rabbit</a>

Hey Mr. Anyway, seems that Blogger may have changed their html embedding code. I was able to cut and paste the link but never did find the reference to "Toons" that you mentioned. Great movie though - a true laugh riot.

Ah, I'd just meant to link to Eddie Valiant's first appearance, right after the opening toon kitchen scene. Eddie takes a swig from his flask and just says with weary resignation, "toons!" That in homage to your opening, "hipsters."
