Fort Lean : The Mall

According to their Facebook page, Fort Lean is “a place where you can still see the skyline but you can’t hear any cars and you can put all your stolen wine in the stream to keep it cool and when the fire dies out you can see some stars and not too many airplanes.” A more interesting description than “five-piece from Brooklyn”, admittedly, but perhaps not the best way to prepare listeners for their music, which is far from airy-fairy. The group have just self-released a new four-track EP – Change Your Name – on which producer Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift) adds pop sheen to their swaggering ’70s arena-styled rock; here’s “The Mall” to take us into the weekend.


About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
