Band of the Week: Let’s Go Sailing

“We’ve got a really tough name for a band,” Shana Levy said on-stage at a recent show at Spaceland. “Let’s Go Sailing, bitch!!”

She’s entitled to go a little agro after spending five years working with a rotating cast of musician friends to complete her group’s self-released first cd, The Chaos In Order.

Well worth the wait, it's a collection of precious pop gems made up of upbeat, intelligent charmers such as Icicles, Sideways, Better Off, and Heart Condition and slow-burning piano bar numbers like the Cat Power-esque All I Want From You Is Love.

The album’s available for order through the band’s website or in-person at the two remaining Monday night residency shows this month at Spaceland… which there’s really no excuse not to attend since they promise to be both good and free.

For more on Let’s Go Sailing, read this interview with Levy from back in June.
