The Lisps

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

The Lisps are the latest band to catch my attention. Quoting directly from their website "The Lisps are a New York-based assemblage of 21st century post-rock n' vaudeville auteurs. They write songs about science and love and sometimes perform in costumes, with tap shoes and without microphones. The Lisps are the public/performative version of all the relationships you're struggling with". What more could I say, if this doesn't sound mouth watering enough then you're reading the wrong web blog.
I expect The Lisps to rise to fame pretty quickly, emerging from a city where dance punk/pop is all the rave. They offer something remarkably new and could appeal to an audience a little isolated by the new rave scene. I remember seeing the Dresden Dolls last year and they were absolutely brilliant, not just a musical act but performance art. I can image a Lisps show being even grander than this. They also remind me a little of Tilly and the Wall and the Brunettes. With their debut EP The Vain, The Modest, and The Dead now out, the Lisps are a band to watch.
