Mills Record Company

The national debut of Lake Street Dive reveals a band full of pop music virtues: solid, evocative song craft; propulsive grooves; and the disarming, forthright vocals of rising star Rachael Price. It's a personal strain of pop that is intriguingly refracted through the band members' rich backgrounds: A sinewy Motown bass line is reborn with woody heft on Bridget Kearney's upright, Mike Calabrese's drumming mixes classic timekeeping with more adventurous jazz-inflected outbursts, Mike Olson's nimble trumpet is an unexpectedly warm counterpoint to Price's blue-eyed soul singing. It all makes for a refreshing sound, with familiar roots but a slant entirely their own. The band first came to attention through a series of ingenious YouTube videos, revealing a cheeky sense of humor along with serious musical chops. They've been growing a loyal fan base through amazing live shows and fine records. Discover one of the great new bands of 2010, Lake Street Dive.
