We can ignore the buzz about Lake Street Dive no longer. The quartet, which met at the New England Conservatory in Boston, combines great instrumental virtuosity with a love of singing roots-influenced music with jazzy flair. Not to deny praise to the male members of the band, but the chops of bassist Bridget Kearney and the burnished voice of Rachael Price are the focus here. After drawing internet attention through videos of wonderfully arranged covers, now come the originals on their album Bad Self Portraits.
