Lemolo, named after Lemolo Shore Drive where the lovely ladies of this dream-pop duo used to teach kayaking lessons, is making waves in Seattle right now. Pun intended. In fact, I first heard about the buzzy Meagan Grandall and Kendra Cox via another Seattle band who rocked the boat hard enough in its native Northwest to create a tidal wave of devotion ’round the world. The Head and the Heart. Yeah, you might have heard of them.
I’ve long made public my adoration for the six indie folksters of Seatown, so when they say, “Stomp your feet and clap your hands,” I say, “How spastically?” And when they say, “Listen to this band,” I say, “Okie dokie.”
So, that’s how I met Lemolo.
The Pajammy Jam of the Day is the first single off their forthcoming debut album, The Kaleidoscope. “On Again, Off Again” contains chanting lyrics that lend themselves well to the song’s overall eerie quality. You can download it for free via Lemolo’s Bandcamp page.
