On Our Radar: Leisure "It's Alright (On the Suez Canal)"

Boston band Leisure have started to make a name for themselves by landing a support slot for the upcoming run of tour dates with Girls. Their sound is a little more polished than you would expect from someone touring with the lo-fi SF band, but Leisure's songs are quite engaging and filled with dynamic vocal performances, strings and even a tinge of Beirut's eclectic melodic sensibilities. Interested in hearing more from them for sure. They have a 7" coming next month, but you can grab tracks here. Tour dates after the jump. (via)
