  • Bad Self Portraits is eclectic Boston band Lake Street Dive's third studio album, and the group's sixth release overall. Produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Erin McKeown), the album comes two years after the group's covers EP, Fun Machine. Rather than revisit that album's neat gimmick of a jazz-soul band covering contemporary pop songs, Lake Street Dive instead delve into a substantial batch of their own blue-eyed-soul and Southern rock-inflected originals. Once again, the album showcases lead singer Rachel Price's resonant, old-school singing, which is still the main reason to listen to Lake Street Dive. Of course, with her band backing her at various times with harmony vocals, jazzy trumpet, crunchy tube guitar riffs, and woody jazz basslines, there's always something rootsy and unexpected happening around her on Bad Self Portraits. There is a buoyant creativity to many of Lake Street Dive's arrangements, and cuts like "Bobby Tanqueray" and "Seventeen" reveal such time-tested influences as late-'60s Muscle Shoals-influenced soul and Dusty Springfield-esque pop. ~ Matt Collar

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] shows a band so in command of its style that it rarely feels like shtick...it's tight, fun and feisty. It helps that they write and arrange with sharp hooks..."

Paste (magazine) - "BAD SELF PORTRAITS showcases the band's diverse musical talents and influences. Soulful ballads and stomping, swinging tracks both stand their ground here."
