Music Album Review: LANY - "LANY" (8/10)

Their trendy Hollywood disciples include Selena Gomez and Patrick Schwarzenegger, but don’t let that taint your view of this bi-coastal trio. Despite their chill-marries-festival-groove aesthetic, the lyrics still pack substance and the undercurrent of dry, winking humor pays dividends. Combined with a knack for earwormy hooks, as exemplified by their vicious burner “Flowers On The Floor,” LANY’s quirky eponymous debut album is an unqualified win. They only really misfire during moments when their muted nature takes over, forcing the band’s unique flavor into the background.
