New album Verse out now via Topshelf Records.
Who: Chris Lee-Rodriguez (Guitar, Vocals), Michi Tassey (Keys, Vocals), Sander Bryce (Drums), Matt Hull (Trumpet, Flugelhorn) and Sai Boddupalli (Bass).
What: Jazz/math-rock (American Football, Chinese Football).
Where: Boston, Massachusetts.
Why: People Like You are on Topshelf Records. That should be all the endorsement you need. If that’s not enough, be aware that they bring a lush and horn-heavy jazz-inflected sound to a math rock foundation. Deftly balancing immediacy with intricacy, the group’s music is both beautiful and arresting.
Guitars sweep and weave in a gently frenetic manner, while vocals soar softly overhead. Rhythms are off-kilter but serve the song. All the while, an atmosphere of experimental accessibility is promoted. Soothing but challenging. Is that possible?
