When listening to the music of Brooklyn five-piece Fort Lean, one may find it difficult to confidently characterize their music. Instead, their songs will evoke from your imagination a certain seasonal mood. Maybe this is due to their leading single being called "Beach Holiday". Or perhaps it's frontman Keenan Mitchell's beach bum demeanor that evokes a sudden, frenetic craving for cheap tiki bar cocktails. The combination of Fort Lean's catchy rock tunes and their laid back attitudes will transport you to more tropical latitudes.
Last month we had the pleasure of catching these Brooklynites in the temperate, party atmosphere of Austin, Texas while at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. We suggest you take a load off, fire up that old margarita maker, and enjoy Fort Lean's entire performance.
