Acoustic Ladyland

Have you ever heard jazz and thought, ‘I would absolutely mosh to this’? I didn’t think so, and until this morning, I hadn’t either. That is when Acoustic Ladyland came into my life. Acoustic Ladyland is a self described punk-jazz band, not so much redefining the boundaries of genres as tearing them to shreds and then stomping all over them. Together with label mates Led Bib, brothers in arms Polar Bear, and the rest of an intriguing up and coming London jazz scene, Acoustic Ladyland is making people all over question why they even try to attach genres to music at all anymore.

Check out the new album, Living with the Tiger. Although there are times when it seems a little repetitive and uninteresting compared to what a jazz afficionado might be used to, it is undeniably a great blend between the fun energy of punk and the seriousness of jazz.
