The Leisure Society Join Laura Marling on UK Tour


The Leisure Society’s “Dust on the Dancefloor”, live in the Virgin Red Room.

I must say, The Leisure Society’s second album, Into the Murky Water, is shaping up to be one of my favorite albums of the year. It’s full of fun, bright, melodious pop songs like their next single, “Dust on the Dancefloor” (above), and “This Phantom Life” (the video is great–watch it!). It’s just a solid record.

While I’m not complaining about the fact that I’ll be seeing the inimitable Alessi’s Ark on my branch of Laura Marling’s tour, I would dearly like to see this merry group of Londoners. If you’re in the UK and have coveted tickets to Ms. Marling’s sold-out cathedral tour, congratulations: you get to head-bob your way through a Leisure Society set.

You can also buy tickets for The Leisure Society’s gig at the Barbican on December 8th (with the Heritage Orchestra and Micah P Hinson).
