Lee Corey Oswald is a band of many faces. In their nascence, they were an acoustic project with a decided folk-punk influence and weren't afraid to wax political. The group's first proper full-length, the stylistically bipolar Moon Songs cassette, was a fly on the wall of the band's transmogrification, featuring seven rockers and seven clap 'n' stomp acoustic ditties. The group's identity crisis was finally resolved with the release of their split 12-inch with Scranton-based pop-punk band Three Man Cannon at the beginning of 2013. LCO's side was an indelible '90s nostalgia junket that sounded little like their previous efforts and instead brought to mind phenomenal—if critically misunderstood—"post-grunge" bands like Gin Blossoms, Superdrag, and Harvey Danger; fittingly, it was produced and engineered by local luminary/mad scientist Ben Barnett of Kind of Like Spitting. The group's latest LP, which is set to be released by No Sleep Records later in the year, features principal songwriter/guitarist Lee Ellis' most intelligent and emotive songwriting to date, wholly delivering on the promises made by the aforementioned split, and then some.
