The Lemurs/ Low Line Caller (Mohawk - Sept. 6, ‘08)

By Samm Newton • Sep 11th, 2008 • Category: Live Sound

“I don’t know what else to say except, be prepared to fall in love with this next song.”

Those were the words of vocalist Marc Ferrino during Low Line Caller’s set at Mohawk on Saturday night. Fall in love?? Did we ever! Not just with the song, but with all they offered. What a great way to begin one’s evening. Luckily, up next was The Lemurs celebrating the release of their new EP - Million Little Bits. Low Line Caller was a tough act to follow and the Lemurs did it with ease. It was a packed patio at The Mohawk, and it wasn’t just hype. Both acts were talented and put on a great, entertaining, rump shaking show.



Lemurs - Lemurs (Ramble Lane)

By Mike Perazzetti • Jan 9th, 2007 • Category: Sound Reviews

The Lemurs’ history seems shrouded in the ether of the murky internet tubes, but the group’s lack of a bio is of little importance to the devoted following that the group has steadily built across Texas. The Austin quintet has been packing clubs in the D-FW area for a while, and now hometown crowds are also beginning to warm up to their sound after several headlining shows at Emo’s. With their self-titled debut EP, the Lemurs display some of what has driven the popularity of their live shows, doling out an eclectic but fevered dose of dance rock.

Picture a sound coming out of your stereo so vivid that you can almost taste the band performing live in your living room. Picture not just surging guitars, but surging guitars melded with equally surging synthesizers on every track. The Lemurs are all that. The eight tracks on the album don’t particularly get any better after that first listen, but each successive play captures the same awe and wonderfully crisp brilliance that reveals even more intricate facets each time you pump up the volume. We all deserve this after digging through a desert without an oasis for the next big thing that doesn’t exist.



Two Gallants/Langhorne Slim/The Lemurs/ The Lord Henry/Clap! Clap! (Emo’s - Oct. 14)

Just one day after being tasered and arrested in Houston, Two Gallants took the stage at Emo’s. Seemingly none-the-worse-for-the-wear, the duo still seemed pretty fired up (and their performances are characteristically intense to begin with). Langhorne Slim and his band had a bit harder of a time trying to work out the kinks of a borrowed upright bass, but both groups still put on fantastic shows. Meanwhile, the outside stage was home to CD release shows for the Lord Henry and the Lemurs with Loxly and Clap! Clap! joining in for good measure.

We arrived too late to catch Loxly’s opening set outside but Clap! Clap!’s sheer exuberance more than made up for it. In fact, Clap! Clap! may have well stolen the show from the headliners. The group was forced to work with keyboards borrowed from the Lemurs – theirs having been stolen only a couple days earlier – but it didn’t seem to slow them down a bit. The members bounced around the stage in a flurry of limbs and instruments while banging on anything in sight and, yes, clapping like mad. The only problem with the set was that few in the crowd seemed to moving, which was strange as Clap! Clap! straight-up dance rock was irresistible – the group coming off like a less pretentious and more fun version of the Rapture.
