Lake Mary
Sheep Dog EP
Street: 11.28.11
Lake Mary = Iron & Wine – vocals + high school band concerts
I picture this band being a group of gangly, quiet 17-year-olds. Their five song acoustic EP evokes youthful and tender feelings, while at the same time feels a bit underdeveloped. My least favorite part was the use of saxophone, which reminded me of Jay Leno’s theme song. My favorite part was the brief use of vocals in the track ‘’Sheep Dog,’’ as it tied together the subdued guitar and made the sound complete. Lake Mary seems as though they haven’t quite figured out their niche—their songs are nice but not necessarily memorable. It’s clear that the members of this band are talented at their respective classical instruments. What is lacking is a mature, strong sound. Keep at it, kids.
