Loch Lomond’s fifth LP, Pens From Spain, comes out this Saturday, and the band is celebrating with a show at the swank Triple Door in Seattle on Thursday, September first. The Portland based outfit has been through several guises during its decade of existence, from its beginning as singer Ritchie Young’s solo act and swelling and shrinking through the years as 75-ish musicians have left their mark. The current lineup sports eight members including Young, which is sure to flesh out performances of new tracks from the album, which sounds folky and dejected, yet features warm backing vocals and some spacey instrumentation. Thursday’s show will be a perfect showcase for Young’s inward-twisting songs.
SMI favorites Planes On Paper will open for Loch Lomond. The duo usually features a rotating cast of extremely talented musicians that flesh out Navid Eliot and Jen Borst’s darkly intelligent folk. These two bands pair like a fine wine with a gourmet meal.
