Formed in 2011 by Andrew MarrBrooklyn band Ski Lodge returns with another installment of jangle pop perfection on Dovecote Records.  Following up their self titled 12″ EP release, Ski Lodge share their new single recorded and produced by Kevin McMahon (Swans, The Walkmen, Real Estate). “Just To Be Like You” finds Marr joined by Jared O’ConnellJohn Barinaga, and Tim McCoy.

Ski Lodge brings to mind the great tradition of C-86bands (or even the other great band with a guitarist named Marr), but with a modern day East Coasttwist. Live they bring their incredible melodies and instrumental precision to the next level, do not miss them on the road.  Stay tuned for details on a forthcoming full length release!

Press Quotes:

“Owes more than a little to early-’80s janglers Orange Juice and The Smiths. It’s pretty darn catchy.”— Brooklyn Vegan

“Intoning every vowel with a nasal ennui”— Pitchfork

“Ski Lodge’s songs are most impressive not for their simplicity or for their general vibes, but for their striking clarity and attention to detail, as well as hooks so strong you couldn’t ignore them if you tried.”–The L Magazine

“Think, Real Estate and The Smiths. Marr writes about nostalgic memories of youth on top of his indie surf jams.” — Earmilk

“Marr keeps things original with soulful, blues-y rhythms and melodies” — Wild Honey Pie
