Loch Lomond on Penny Jam

Hats off to the Penny Jammers!  It doesn’t take a special camera to make the photegenic band look great, but they are sounding particularly great in this live performance of “Ghost Of An Earthworm” (track 1 on the new EP) hosted at The Ace.  Nice work audio engineers!

The tempo might come as a surprise to some.  Who would have thought Loch Lomond was ready for Mtv-esque jumpcuts?

“Behind all its ornate instrumentation and chamber arrangements, Loch Lomond is a pop band. You could always hear it in spots—the gentle chug of “Field Report,” the plucked strings and gallop of “Blue Lead Fences”—but never before has the six piece band been in full pop mode. Until now.

In the 26th (!) edition of the Penny Jam, Loch Lomond play its new and super poppy song “The Ghost of an Earthworm” in the warm, book-bound confines of the Ace Hotel.  Man, Loch Lomond is on a serious R.E.M. kick. And I have no problem with that.” – Michael Mannheimer, Willamette Week
