Learning Team

The pop-rock quintet Learning Team, one of Bellingham's most notable current players, has released three FreePs via Bandcamp since their inception in 2011, the most recent being this March's Daypack. The five-track EP contains such tasty offerings as "Oreo" and "Iced Coffee," sweet and appealingly pleasant songs driven by strumming guitars and humming vocals. The band's frontman Emile Panerio is a lovely vocalist—his easy singing style reflects youth and sharp perception; that's best heard on Daypack's standout track, "MLK," an atmospheric coalescence of tranquilizing rhythms and swirling strings. Good summer vibes all around. With The Royal Sea, The Underwater Tiger. ERIN K. THOMPSON
