La Salle Expedition Songs

Expedition Songs fuses pop melodies with intricate time signatures and sharp instrumentation to form a well-crafted album. Featuring Mike Reed and Dan Jaquint of Small Brown Bike, along with Mike’s wife Katy, the group consistently show their members are all adept musicians. Throughout the disc, the Michigan band display a good ability to merge dissonance with tunefulness. Mike and Katy’s voices blend well together, creating a solid contrast to the band’s occasionally discordant instrumentation. For a debut record, Expedition Songs generally conveys a persuasive confidence and consistency. (Thick)
