Listen: LODRO – “Snake Song” (Townes Van Zandt cover)

By ; November 4, 2013 at 7:07 AM 


Neo noir rock band LODRO seem to have crawled out from some unpublished Philip Marlowe story.  The band’s music seems to consist of rough edges, shadowy alleyways, and a slowed down punk shuffle that would fit in perfectly with the other unsavory characters of Marlowe’s world.  Consisting of Lesley Hann (ex-Friends) and Jeremy Cox and Jigmae Baer (both formerly of Royal Baths), LODRO peddle a darkly unique vision of psych-tinged punk that’s slowed down until it appears to be stalking the avenues of its own construction.  They’ve just released their debut 7″ via Tracer Sounds and are now sharing the b-side, a slithering and disquieting cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Snake Song.”  Hann’s voice saunters through the song like the last wisps of a smoke from a spent cigarette, and Cox and Baer give the track a dangerous, rhythmic push.  Listen to their take on “Snake Song” below.
