Dominant Legs — Invitation (September 27, 2011)

         Dominant Legs — Invitation (September 27, 2011)
Ξ   Octl jsem se na after≈party po vítání občánků v dobách China Crisis? Držím jedno uvítané děťátko, má Dominant Legs, prožívá první svaté přijímání třešničky, štíhlý krček přijme sousto a pak si zatancujeme. K tanci a poslechu je tady dostatek prostoru, se spoustou reverbu, zvláštním, bezprostředně přitažlivým zvukem v moodu 10.000 Maniacs, s kladením věnce důrazu na funky á la Belle & Sebastian a pozdním, třetím druhem zábavy v nočních hodinách, kdy se příslušné podniky otevírají j jednu po půlnoci. Cítím se dobře: bodejť by ne, když Dominant Legs mají své vlastní nohy, jedinečné, půvabné... / Guy–girl indie pop duo from San Francisco that evokes Neon Indian at one moment and Arthur Russell at another.Location: San Francisco, CA

Product Description:
Ξ   Invitation is the debut full length from San Francisco s Dominant Legs. The band is the project of long time Girls contributor Ryan Lynch. Building upon their previous Young At Love and Life EP, Lynch and vocalist/keyboardist Hannah Hunt are now joined by a full band, making the sound warm and complete.AllMusic Review by Heather Phares;  Score: ***½
Ξ   Building on the playful pop of Young at Love and Life, Dominant Legs expand to a full band on their debut album, Invitation, adding bassist Andrew Connors, guitarist Garett Goddard, and drummer Rene Solomon to the fold. Fittingly, the group’s sound is bigger and more focused, as well; Ryan Lynch and Hannah Hunt’s hooks and melodies begged for a more fleshed–out treatment than they got on Dominant Legs’ debut EP, and they get it with a bright, glossy production that emphasizes just how much they love ‘80s pop of all stripes. Lynch’s distinctive warble and the punchy polyrhythms of “Where We Trip the Light” recall Talking Heads’ poppiest moments; later on, “Lady Is Sleek and So Petite”’s breakdown channels Harold Faltermeyer’s “Axel F.” As befitting a band with a name as strangely sexy as Dominant Legs, Invitation trades in songs about love and attraction with more than a few quirks. Ξ   “We’re giving each other as much pleasure as we’re taking away,” Lynch sings on “Already Know That It’s Nice,” as Hunt’s vocals shadow his, and sparkling synths turn the song into a synth pop confection. Indeed, the album’s glistening sound sometimes threatens to overpower the actual songs, and Invitation’s best tracks are the ones with the strongest songwriting. “Darling Girls” is unabashed, unapologetic pop straight out of an ‘80s teen movie soundtrack, while “Hoop of Love” has an oddly skipping chorus that’s catchy but not obvious (later, “Loving Now” feels like this song’s minor–key twin). Invitation documents Dominant Legs’ sound as it jells into something they can call their own; even when it isn’t strikingly original, it’s always enjoyable.
Reviews:
Ξ   “...adorably dreamy synth–pop sound, with lots of reverb and plenty of room to dance.” — NPR
Ξ   “Dominant Legs, has a strange, immediately appealing sound that s part funky Belle & Sebastian/part late–night Arthur Russell/ part something uniquely his own.” — Stereogum
