Eli Moore and Ashley Eriksson started the Olympia collective LAKE with every intention of touring as a Fleetwood Mac cover band. They ended up ditching that plan to write and record their own spacious, lulling pop songs, but the inspiration point is still obvious. LAKE’s most recent effort, last year’s Let’s Build a Roof (produced by Karl Blau and released by K Records) runs very similarly to Rumours – lively melodies peppered with tambourine rattles and Rhodes piano chords intermixed with smooth and easy tunes of jazzy guitar runs and velvety vocal harmonies. That sunny 70’s retro atmosphere just never gets old. With Breathe Owl Breathe, Typhoon. ERIN K. THOMPSON
