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.
“Lipstick Prick” by Lazy Legs
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.
