Minutos Musicales: The Lucksmiths

aquí os presento una banda con una amplia trayectoria: 10 albums y 5 EPs.

Quizá el ver sus influencias te permita abstraerte y referenciar correctamente el tipo de música que realizan: The Simpletons, Billy Bragg, The Housemartins, The Magnetic Fields, Belle & Sebastian, The Smiths, Aztec Camera, Lloyd Cole y Orange Juice.

El que escuche de nuevas sus canciones se encontrará con un repertorio basado en unas letras bien estudiadas y que hablan de temas muy comunes ( "Songs by the Lucksmiths are mostly about love and relationships, but also deal with other everyday issues such as notable friends or warm weather"). En global cada uno de sus discos son una combinación de muchas sensaciones diferentes: canciones lentas, rápidas, con voces combinadas de chico y chica, con mucha letra o bien casi toda instrumental....

En este último disco se publican 2 CDs con un total de 55 temas, algunos de los cuales son en vivo.
Un último comentario: su música no te dejará indiferente.

"The Lucksmiths are an independent pop band from Melbourne, Australia who formed in 1993 and have been associated with the genres of indie pop, anti-folk and retro-pop.

The members are Martin "Marty" Donald (guitar), Taliesyn "Tali" White (vocals, drums), and Mark Monnone (bass) and in 2004 they acquired Mid State Orange's guitarist Louis Richter on second guitar.

In the early 90's, they met Chris Crouch, who informally 'signed them' to his record label, Candle Records. Crouch consequently began releasing their records, and they began to play the Melbourne indie circuit, most notably the Punters Club and later expanded to other Australian venues such as Sydney's The Annandale Hotel or Brisbane's the Troubadour.

The Punters Club, however, clearly holds a special place in The Lucksmiths' history as seen in the song "Requiem to the Punters' Club", written after its conversion to the bar Bimbo Deluxe."
