Si Me Faltaras Tu b/w Parachute
Thee Lakesiders are a duo out of Los Angeles comprised of Marie and Necalli who we were introduced to us by our friend El Oms. He thought it would be great to get them out to New York and into the the studio with El Michels. Turns out, he was very right. They spent two days in The Diamond Mine with The Shacks as their backing band and Leon producing and writing with them and cut three songs. Two of which are here on this nice two sider of a 45.
Side A, “Si Me Falteras,” is worked up into something of a Latin Psych number; it’s a cover of Los Terricolas’s tune they cut in 1973 redone with some more muscle. Ben’s driving beat and Max’s guitar work set the stage for Marie to showcase the powerful side of her voice.
Side B, “Parachute,” finds them in one of their favorite styles, a dreamy ballad that floats over guitar chanks, brush hits, and vibraphone rolls. This time Marie shows us a different side of her range, her beautiful and lush vocals ride perfectly in the pocket making for a gorgeous B side that can ride right alongside the oldies.
