Love at First Listen: Lazertag

Lazertag “Bring Us Back to Life”

“Strange Glow”

“Buildings of a Former Century”

Lazertag is love at first listen. A San Francisco-based duo, they have that indie folktronica thing going on that mixes guitar, melodies, drum machines and video game bleeps and bloops into unexpected loveliness. The pair, Mitch and Ryan, have been playing tunes since their high school days in Petaluma. Both went to SFSU where they independently cultivated their musical styles and planted the seed of what would become Lazertag. They’ve just released their second album, Minor Loss of Fidelity, which is just a fancy, clever way of appealing to my lo-fi sensibilities. Take a listen.
