Why do we like this?

This isn't exactly brand spanking new, but that shouldn't be an excuse for us to let great music slip through the cracks. Le Loup are a DC-based six piece who revel in reverb-heavy textures and lush harmonies. "Family" is their second full-length album off Hardly Art, an imprint of Sub Pop, and is the first album since the band solidified its lineup. It's mild freak-folk jams are soothing, celebratory, and haunting.

The best part about this album though is the sense of balance throughout. Even though Le Loup started as the solo project of Sam Simkoff, the band now emphasizes its identity as a family on their website, and the cohesion really comes through in the music. There isn't a single element of the multi-layered tunes that overpowers the others; not even Simkoff's vocals. Each member adds an equal contribution to the sound, and the result washes over in waves that are both complex and tranquil.
