Louis XIV. Who? It’s an alt group and the EP I’ve been checking out is called Illegal Tender (Pineapples). I’ve listened to it five times and it just doesn’t do anything for me. I believe this was their first. I’ve got another one on my pile. Why doesn’t it do anything? It’s alt but doesn’t seem to have much of an edge to it. The songs are a little whiny. None of the melodies stick out in my head. And instrumentally nobody seems to be kicking it.
