Lazy Legs — “Lipstick Prick”

If you only listen to one song today, make it “Lipstick Prick” by Lazy Legs (2015, from the standalone single).

Lazy Legs is an ambient shoegaze trio from Chicago. Michael Tenzer (guitar/vocals) is joined by Laura Wagner (guitar/bass/vocals) and Nick Piontek (drums). Tenzer’s name might sound familiar because he’s been busy this year with various different projects. He’s the front of dreampop/shoegaze band Savage Sister, and also works on a solo project called Eyes Behind The Veil. He’s also involved in a couple of other projects, but these are the ones that I know about and have written about.

Lazy Legs is his newest project, and it reunites him with Piontek, who is a former member of Savage Sister. We’re still waiting, by the way, for the 2015 release of the new Savage Sister album Speechless). It should be out soon, but I don’t know details.

Tenzer just announced this the other day and released the song via his own Wild Pattern Records.

There’s a bit of shoegazey fuzz carefully wrapped in dream pop gauze. In this respect, although this isn’t as noisy, they remind me a bit of their Windy City compatriots Lightfoils. The vocals of Tenzer and Wagner are very complimentary, even if the words are deliberately impossible to discern.

I have no idea if we should expect anything else from Lazy Legs, or if this is a one-off. Either way, this is really good. So is everything else Tenzer has done.
