QRO first came into contact with Adam Schatz through Previously on Lost, his project with Jeff Curtin wherein the pair from Family Time (QRO interview) wrote songs based on episodes of the greatest TV show ever, Lost (it was at the penultimate Lost episode/Previously On Lost performance that QRO met some of the cast & creators – QRO live review). Since we all said goodbye to the island, Schatz has been working in a ton of bands, including keys/horns for the likes of Sleigh Bells, Will Sheff, Twin Shadow, Freelance Whales, and Diamond Doves (QRO photos of Doves with Schatz) – and been running his own band, Landlady.
Check out Landlady’s single “Above My Ground”, which has a TV On the Radio feel (especially in Schatz’s voice), with all the interesting complexity that entails. On the backside of the single is their completely reimagined cover of “Oh My Golly” by The Pixies (QRO live review). Both were made at Spaceman Sound Studio – see also a video from the studio.
