Lake Street Dive: Live at the Paste Studio

Whether they’re performing a Michael Jackson cover on a Boston sidewalk or jamming out to an original track at the Paste Studio, Lake Street Dive has one hell of a presence as a unit. The best part of the multi-genre quartet is everything works together seamlessly. Bridget Kearney, who wildly plucks at the upright bass, earned recognition in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition in 2005, subsequently gathering the wherewithal for the band’s debut release. The two Mikes bounce along at their respective instrumental stations as lead-vocalist Rachael Price pulls it all together as the unifying agent of the group. Price leaves the gravitas behind for some spunkiness, closing her eyes and waving her hands about with flair.

The band’s energy is only natural considering their lively tunes of their newest LP, Side Pony. The 12-track installment features jazz-infused pop, twinkly xylophones, and the soulfulness of a diva in charge. “Who doesn’t like a side pony?” Price asks jauntily. While the hairstyle might only make a comeback in Fuller House this year, her vibrato has a way of coaxing us into agreement.
