The Western-tinged, honky-tonk rockers Le Switch are an island in Los Angeles' indie rock scene. With Josh Charney's tinkling ivories and Aaron Kyle's gristled vocals broadcasting lonesome love songs and bar-room howlers, the band sounds more Southwest than Silver Lake. But on their upcoming album, The Rest of Me Is Space, Le Switch explores more soulful textures and classic rock 'n' roll song structures that echo back to the good ol' days of pop. They're hints of the Beatles and Wilco in Le Switch's diverse offerings, but Kyle's soaring voice obliterates comparison, soulfully reaching up and calling out to the heavens.
Tonight, Le Switch will present their record release show at Spaceland, so we wanted to give you a taste of what's to come. So take a first listen to some tracks from the new album including the debut of Le Switch's new song, "Bad Decisions," EXCLUSIVELY presented by West Coast Sound.
