Landlady - BTR Live Studio [ep331]
There’s a character in the New York music scene who we at BTRtv affectionately refer to as Doctor Schatz. His actual name is Adam, and he’s the force at the center of this whirlwind of a band, Landlady. He also happens to play with a diverse range of other acts — from Man Man and Zongo Junction to Father Figures and more — where you might find him wrestling a saxophone, making obscenely interesting electronic sounds, or, in this case, singing and fronting a great indie rock band. In the case of Landlady, the compositions are complex yet catchy, and the lyrics crafted in such a way that they seem to be aiming for hopeful, Flaming Lips-style psychedelic sing-a-longs. There’s an intense brightness emanating from this Adam Schatz character in everything he does, and these songs are a direct expression of that. Don’t be surprised if he (via this project or another one) becomes a household name in music in the coming years.
