L.A. duo Livingmore have a disciplined alt-rock vision and a gift for commercial, radio-friendly hooks, as on their best tune “Really Mean It” where Alex Moore’s pretty voice is well situated in the mix, right above the down stroked guitars and synth-strings. No solo turns––the musicianship is there to support the song and the singer. Though sweet and sedate, “Little Bird” has an underlying guitar snarl that we like, and the arrangement utilizes a blend of Moore and her cohort Spencer Livingston’s voices that is quite pleasing. This gratifying blend sweetens the downcast lyrics of “Counting Sheep,” lending the tune a yearning glow. These savvy recordings indicate that Living- more is poised for a breakthrough.
