Event Details

Tropical vibes and Milwaukee, Wisconsin may make for unlikely bedfellows, but don’t tell that to L’Resorts. On the band’s debut full-length, the sun is always out and the sand is always hot—even if the songs themselves deal in cloudier topics like heartbreak and loss. Another unlikely pairing: Jaill’s Vincent Kircher and Lady Cannon’s Martha Cannon (she of 2019’s also-excellent Fortune’s Darling), who combine their distinctive voices to create something both world-weary and warm. Opener “Baby Don’t” is all Hawaiian-shirt guitars and tumbling marimbas, while the heavenly “Separate Oceans” is an Instagram sunset set to song (and scored with even more marimbas). “You and me make a perfect team” Kircher and Cannon sing late on the album. Thirteen tracks of perfectly rendered and impossibly catchy tropical pop prove this boast to be true.
