Lake Street Dive

by

For a blast of retro soul, look no further than Lake Street Dive, the Boston-formed quartet of Rachael Price, Mike “McDuck” Olson, Bridget Kearney and Mike Calabrese. Among the group’s strengths are Price’s soulful, familiar vocals, which are punctuated by jazzy horn bursts on playful tunes like the Beatles-riffing “Hell? Goodbye?”; and songs such as “Bad Self Portraits” mock the selfie generation over a bed of piano thumps. Live, expect Lake Street Dive to toss in the occasional jazz-ified cover, like the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.”
