If Lemolo aren't already on your list of favorite Northwest bands, it's only a matter of time. The Seattle-area duo makes a uniquely yearning kind of pop that places you right at the waterline: When the music isn't gently rolling over you like a slow current rinses through undulating underwater plants, it's crashing down on you like heavy surf, dashing you against the rocks. Meagan Grandall's piano, guitar, and voice steer the craft, while Kendra Cox's drums and synths are the engine, the two working in tandem through both calm seas and intense squalls. Sorry about all these water metaphors. Apparently Grandall and Cox met as kayak instructors on Liberty Bay (they're named after Poulsbo's Lemolo Shore Drive) so perhaps it's inevitable their music evokes the association. Lemolo's 2012 debut The Kaleidoscope has no shortage of gasp-worthy moments, but they're even better in person. NED LANNAMANN
