Synth-pop newcomers Legs soar with infectious ‘Altitud’ release

Legs (self-released)
4 stars out of 5

If you’re looking for an album to provide the soundtrack for your next house party, I’m guessing there are options a whole lot worse than “Altitud.” That’s the enchanting debut full-length album from synth-pop five-piece Legs, an electronics-fueled platter that’s sure to leave you with a big smile on your face.

Legs CDMy first exposure to the band comprised of brothers Tito & Jack Ramsey and Juan Miguel & Herman Marin, plus Charles Larson, came last year when their terrific song “So Obvious” was featured in the soundtrack for the indie comedy “Obvious Child.” That whet my appetite for more from the band and they don’t disappoint at all on the 10-track release.

Opener (and lead single) “Top of the World” gets the party started on “Altitud,” and Legs also score with “Jungle,” “Dream Technician,” “Synthia,” “Let Em Go” and “Whole Wide Woman.” Make sure to lace up your dancing shoes before giving this one a spin. (Jeffrey Sisk)
