Legs: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013

There is an Oakland band called Legs, and they have songs with titles like "Friday Afternoon at the Zoo," "Go Ask Your Mother," and "The King's Collection of Slides & Super 8." So if you're thinking Legs are quirky indie-pop, you're right — their debut album on Loglady Records is even called Pass the Ringo, and will be out April 23. But, oh how charming quirky indie-pop can be, especially when the production values are cheap, the melodies are buoyant, and there's a female vocalist sometimes. "Two Colours" is a joy of a first single that features singer Amelia Adams, and showcases how Legs' basic, throwback pop can transcend its occasional predictability. It is, after all, a cute song about laundry.
