I caught them a couple years back opening up for Courtney Love at the Majestic Ventura Theater and the troupe impressed me with their incredible presence and sultry vibes. In the last few years, the band has turned to a brighter sound and a brighter future–the band’s next full length is imminent and they stopped by the Blog for an acoustic session. Watch below.

The songs span 8 years of growing feelings, courtship, anxiety, elation, reciprocation, and love. They are due to embark on a US tour in a month, so keep an eye out for them in the LA area!

I had the luck to catch Belle Game the other week at School Night/Bardot amid a crazy couple weeks of work. The band specializes in a lush, sultry sound that reminds me of a little-known Boston band back in the day that I loved named Baby Boy H, where soundscapes and textures are mixed with darkly soaring vocals, cut with a definite edge by some excellent drumming and guitar work. They are going to for sure be a band to watch.

LAMB Session: Amanda Fondell

Swedish Idol sets sight on US Soil

July 28th, 2017
Lex Voight

Sweden’s Amanda Fondell has been a mover and shaker since winning Swedish Idol’s Eighth Series back in 2011. Six years later, shes turning her eyes towards the states, looking to dominate in the pop/soul/electro market much the same way fellow countryman Robyn has for some time. Amanda is sweet, her answers are unpolished and endearingly somewhat lost in translation, and though her frustration with the language is clear, clearer still is her good-natured smile and passion for her work.
