Armed with a tidal wave of talent and tracks from their new release, Weirdo Shrine, Seattle’s surf rock songstresses La Luz light up KEXP with this stunning live session. With their dark, reverb coated strings and organic tones, the band delve deeper into the fabric of their sundrenched sound - with tracks like "Sleep Till They Die" and the upbeat "Don't Wanna Be Anywhere" incorporating elements of doo wop, pop and western whimsy into their more textured and nuanced audio. If you miss out in checking this exceptional live set, we can't even call you a Luzer.
