Landlady is the baby of New Yorker and multi-instrumentalist Adam Schatz. You may know him as the saxophonist in the Teenage Prayers (though he wasn’t around when they came in), but he also plays keyboards, guitar, and whatever other instruments he needs to in order to translate his songs from their usual 6-piece band arrangement down to one-man-band territory. The result is a spacey, trippy, jazzy loop-based take on the full-band performance. Prepare to have his improvisations mess with your brain a bit, and his cover songs to go somewhere the originals never did.
He’ll be playing solo (with a guest) this Wednesday at TT the Bear’s.
