Best of the gigs in late November

Founded by sisters Jenny Lee Lindberg and Shannyn Sossamon in Los Angeles back in 2009 (the latter left shortly afterwards and was replaced by drummer Stella Mozgawa), the group enjoyed a successful debut with The Fool (2010) – an album spearheaded by their psych-rock hit ‘Love is to Die’.
Re-emerging with a definably different sound, the quartet have begun to formulate a new sonic manifesto in the aftermath of The Fool. Playing with spacey electronic elements, morose lyrics and plenty of guitar-heavy interludes, the success of their current tour is likely to make or break the group’s career.
