La Luz Streams debut LP “It’s Alive”

One week from today, Seattle “surf noir” four-piece La Luz will release their debut full-length It’s Alive. Starting today, you can stream the record above. Later this month, the band joins of Montreal for the majority of their cross-country tour. This Saturday, the band celebrates the imminent release of It’s Alive with a concert and dance competition at Seattle’s storied Crocodile Cafe. See below for a full list of dates.

Still, La Luz’s live shows, more than most these days, are about connection. They give you shit for not dancing. They convey a gritty self-possession, a sense that they’ve been there and back again. And, like the expert, but seemingly effortless, surf licks and meandering bass lines that rise and fall throughout their songs, their mocking is playful and dreamy and disarming enough to get most of the crowd (and sometimes the keyboard player) dancing down the center line of a soul train.
