The most interesting show I've seen in a while was Luella and the Sun. At the beginning of the show I wasn't sure what to make of them and by the end of the show I still wasn't. Sleeping on it didn't help and a week or so later I'm still not sure if I liked them of not. There's nothing routine about them, I'd say they are thought provoking and probably not for everyone, not that there is a band that is for everyone. Intense, minimalist guitar, bass and drums and a lot of space between instruments along with a talented singer - Melissa, aka Luella - with a big voice. I guess it's mostly the singing I'm not so sure about. She sounds like Emmy Lou Harris singing hard blues with a punk edge, including some vocal histrionics that maybe don't serve the songs so well. Or maybe the histrionics are the thing. I don't know much about the band, their website www.louellaandthesun.com is not especially informative. I believe I heard the guitarist has played a lot with Kevin Gordon, which was sufficient to pique my interest.
Wondering what those who've seen Luella and the Sun thought about the show they saw.
Meanwhile, here's a video:
