Out And About: Landlady at Death By Audio
  • WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 06, 2014

If last night's kickoff show was a premonition for Landlady's upcoming tour, I can tell you this: you must go see them immediately. Landlady hadn't even begun their set before everyone, including the band, was drenched in sweat. Nothing was going to stop the crowd at Death by Audio that night; the sticky, sweaty mess became a swarm of hair and dancing that only Landlady could conjure. The setlist focused on their latest release, Upright Behavior, an album that demands a booty shake or two and refuses to leave anyone in the room standing still. The self-described "genre surprise" is more fact than witty description. Each track off Upright Behavior challenges the listener, each subtle crack in the chords surprising and manifesting in the live performance with clear cadency. Adam Schatz's influences are palpable in both delivery and performance; his Randy Newman-esque vocals and brisk movements make for a musical head rush that is undeniably powerful. Closing out the set with album opener "Above My Ground," Schatz calls the audience to chant "always," a word that signifies something different within each audience member, before he dedicates the ending number to Death By Audio and magnetically engages the crowd to break the barrier between band and audience.
