Nearly two weeks ago, Achille Lauro opened up for Akron/Family at the Bluebird. Achille Lauro was dependably stellar as always. "In terms of the opening three bands, however, Achille Lauro's set stood
out," wrote A.H. Goldstein in his review of the show
. "The outfit's meditative and eloquent guitar lines, deepened by
frontman Matt Close's sinuous synth lines and emotive vocals, made for
a grounded and consistent set. Guitarist Luke Mossman offered plaintive
and expertly plucked lines, a constant boon that helped carry the
group's set." Our buddy Lance Stack from the Flat Response
captured the whole set and has once again graciously hooked us up with links to download for this week's Boot. Enjoy!
