Lullabye Arkestra - Summertime

Going on parental leave hiatus, dummer/vocalist Justin Small and bassist/vocalist Kat Taylor-Small took a year off, made a brief re-appearance, and have been quiet for a while since then. That made it all the sweeter to see them back in action with their patented mix of heavy fuzz bass and thrashing drums. A few songs were a wee bit slower than they used to be, but there was still a dance-worthy groove in songs like "Fog Machine" and "Y'Make Me Shake" and a fiery climax to the set. And since the Bloor Ossington Folk Festival is an informal celebration of the summer's end, this cover seems like an appropriate pick. Here's hoping the next show is quicker in coming!
