    Lemon Twigs, Andrew H. Smith

    With Beach Boys harmonies, Todd Rundgren melodies, and Sweet riffola, Long Island’s Lemon Twigs channel Me Decade glam rock, soft rock, and power pop into impeccably crafted, fervently performed ingots of pure rock & roll. Despite being too young to experience that music directly, the D’Addario brothers – sons of Sixties/Seventies singer-songwriter Ronnie D’Addario – sound so steeped. It’s only seeing their baby faces in person that will dispel the illusion of listening to a long-lost act from the era. The band’s fourth album Everything Harmony comes out in early May. Garage pop clown Andrew H. Smith opens.
