…cornerstone preview: Lakes “White Flag”

In music, music video on June 12, 2008 at 12:23 pm

I’ll look at a whole bunch of bands playing Cornerstone in the lead-up to the June 30-July 5 festival over the next two weeks, hopefully on a daily or semi-daily basis. Here’s info on the Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, Illinois.

Lakes is the new or kind of new band from Seth Roberts, the former impetus behind Tooth and Nail (and previously Bettie Rocket band–Freeto Boat anyone?) Watashi Wa. I always liked Roberts, I have one or two Watashi Wa albums, but his style really came through with Eager Seas. His voice is distinctive, and now his music goes beyond a simple punk-pop classification into alluring and upbeat modern rock. Earnest seems an apt description for Lakes, but also immensely talented.

Lakes plays Wednesday, July 2nd on the Gallery Stage.

Here’s the vid for “White Flag”:
