On their Sonic Bids page bio, Lords and Barons simply write, “We make noise.” And they do. And it’s good.
This trio of Los Angelean rockers keep it simple with their sound, too. It’s just sloppy-good rock ‘n’ roll without excess tricks or gimmicks. The lineup is simple guitar, vocals and drums, though it sounds like they had someone playing bass on the recordings. “Sidewalks” is a fun dose of ballsy guitar-heavy pop/rock, but I really like their dirge-y, plaintive anthem “Prelude” the best so far.
Their MySpace page is pretty light on the details, but all you need to know is that they’re pretty rocking. Save all the thinking for something more important and just enjoy yourself.
